Orientation 2013

New Student Experience!

Centenary's Orientation begins on Friday August 16th. Students will move into their residence halls from 4pm - 6pm. At this time, they will check in for Orientation, and meet their Resident Advisor (RA). Commuter students will check in at 6:30 pm, meet other commuters, and attend a kick-off events in the residential communities!

Students will spend the next 4 days getting to know their classmates and becoming familiar with the Centenary community. In addition to fun activities, there will be sessions so students can learn to navigate campus, understand what college is all about, and get the most out of the Centenary experience.
