Common Questions About The Centenary College of Louisiana Alumni Today Publication

We thought it might be helpful to provide you with the answers to some of the questions you may have regarding the alumni directory project.

Why are you doing an alumni book?

A book will enable you to find and keep in touch with old friends and classmates. Also, because your name and biographical information will be listed along with those of other alumni, it will be easy for them to contact you. Finally, the project will assist the alumni office in keeping the most accurate and up-to-date records possible on all alumni so we can let you know what's happening at the school.

Why is the return address on the postcard a Virginia address?

We have partnered with Harris Connect, with offices in Virginia, to produce our new book. Harris Connect has been an industry leader for nearly 50 years and has produced over 4,000 books for a variety of colleges, universities, high schools, and membership associations.

When can I expect to hear from Harris Connect?

Over the next few months, you may receive postcards, emails or phone calls from Harris asking for updated contact information. We would appreciate your cooperation in updating your contact information. Harris Connect accepts and makes calls Monday through Friday, beginning at 8:00 a.m. and continuing until about 9:00 p.m., in all time zones. They may try to contact you at work during the day, or in the evening. If you are contacted at a time that is inconvenient for you, simply let the representative know. S/He will give you the Harris Connect toll-free number or will arrange to call you later.

Who should I contact if I have questions regarding the accuracy of my listing in the book?

You should contact Harris Connect directly, since they will be working to update our list. A dedicated a toll-free number will be created specifically for our alumni. You can use this number to verify or change your listing or to place a directory order.

What if I don't want to be listed in the book? What if I don't want certain pieces of information listed?

Harris Connect can still update your information for us, but will honor your specific request to exclude all or parts of your biographical data from the publication.

Are there different versions of the book? If I reserve a copy when can I expect to receive it?

The book will be available in a Hardbound edition and a Softbound edition. The difference between the two is the cover and the binding but the content is the same. There is also a CD-ROM version of the directory, or a combination of the CD and either the hardbound or softbound editions. Additionally, there is a Reunion CD, which contains alumni of your class and the surrounding 4 class years. Reservations are taken in advance and the publication is scheduled to reach you early next year.

How will Centenary College benefit from the project?

Harris is producing our directory at no cost to the organization. They put a lot of work into the research and production of the publication and we will receive an up-to-date database of all our alumni. This will be invaluable in helping us keep in touch.

What happens if I don't order a directory now, but change my mind later?

We have arranged to print as many books as are ordered before we go to press. So, if you do change your mind prior to publication, you can call the dedicated toll – free update line.

What forms of payment will be accepted for the purchase of a directory?

The directory may be paid for by major credit card or check. Payment(s) may be made by credit card at the time of order or by check upon receipt of the invoice(s). Installment payment plans are also available, allowing you to pay a portion now and the rest later. Reunion CD must be paid in full by credit card. On most major credit card statements, “HC” will appear with the name of Centenary College.

What if I decide I want to cancel the order I have placed?

Orders for the directory may be canceled by calling the Harris Connect Customer Service Department at 1-800-877-6554. Be sure to provide the account number when canceling.
