In addition to my room, where else is a good place to study?
- There are a variety of places on campus that are great for studying. Some of the places include the lobby of your residence hall, the library, the Student Union Building, or in one of the academic buildings. Many buildings are open until late into the evening, allowing students to study and use science and computer labs. You'll also find many students outside on benches or in the grass studying.
Is there a post office on campus?
- Yes. It is located on the main floor of the Student Union Building. All students, both on and off campus, are issued post office boxes and are required to check them regularly. Students not assigned box numbers by the beginning of orientation should check with the Post Office personnel as early as possible for an assignment. For more information, call 869-5263 or see the appropriate section of the Student Handbook.
Where does my mail need to be sent?
There is a post office in the Student Union Building right in the middle of campus. Your address will be:
Campus Box # _
2911 Centenary Boulevard
Shreveport, LA 71104
If you need to receive a package, have it sent to your usual campus address and the post office will notify you when it arrives.
Where do I go if I get sick?
- The Health Services office is located in Rotary Hall. Hours are posted in Rotary Hall, the Student Union Building, and in the residence halls. Health Services offered are "first care," consultation, wellness programs, and provider referrals that meet the needs of the majority of students.
- If students are in need of emergency care during non-operational hours, they should notify a DPS Officer or RA and these staff members will contact appropriate medical personnel.
- For more information, please see this section in the Student Handbook.
Are there counseling services available on campus?
- Yes. The mission of the Counseling Center is to provide students with brief, solution focused counseling that enables them to cope with personal problems that may impede their success as college students. Referrals to community resources can also be made. Counseling is provided free of charge to all currently enrolled Centenary students. Confidentiality is strictly maintained. The Center is located on the ground floor of Rotary Residence Hall, and the phone number is 869-5466.
