About Us

Choose Centenary, and you choose a college that empowers you to DO MORE.

For yourself.

For others.

For the world.

Centenary College of Louisiana is a selective, residential, national liberal arts college affiliated with the United Methodist Church. Founded in 1825, it is the oldest chartered liberal arts college west of the Mississippi River and is a member of the Associated Colleges of the South.

Building on our historic strengths, we are expanding opportunities to study global challenges throughout the curriculum—such as living sustainably in a world with finite resources; searching for meaning and developing our values and beliefs; and expanding our circles to promote respectful engagement in an interconnected world. Centenary is serious about creating opportunities for global education - 70% of our students have completed an international educational experience, and we send every freshman to Paris through our one-of-a-kind Centenary in Paris program.
