Centenary's Credo

We aspire to be one of the best small colleges in the South. Our special mission will be to earn a national reputation for attaining extraordinary levels of academic performance from our students.

Our students will aim for and reach superior, measurable standards in both liberal studies and in professional programs. We will be noted for our vibrant and stimulating campus life where outstanding scholars, artists, and leaders interact with our students and faculty.

Our student population will be cosmopolitan. There will be a rich diversity of persons from different cultures, areas, and age groups.

We will be concerned with aspects beyond academic work: culture, character and career will be our sustaining causes.

Our college will be noted as a leader in higher education and for its willingness to try new ventures. It will also be noted as a place where leaders are nurtured and produced.

Centenary College will be regional center for the performing and visual arts.

While the primary focus of campus will be an undergraduate education, Centenary College will offer a few distinctive graduate programs which meet the special needs of mature persons.

Centenary's physical plant and grounds will provide a visual statement as to the quality of learning which takes place here, as well as to the pride we have in the campus's beauty and integrity.

Centenary College of Louisiana will stand out as a small, residential, church-related college which is rooted in the liberal arts and at the same time is progressive, pioneering, and bold.
