International Travel

Trey started college in Paris, France thanks to the one-of-a-kind Centenary in Paris program. He walked in the footsteps of African-American writers in Paris and explored questions of race and gender thanks to the "Paris Noir: Black America in the City of Light" course taught by Professors Dana Kress and Andia Augustin-Billy.

Starting college in Paris was amazing. I got to meet some of the best friends anyone could ask for. Honestly, if I hadn't gone to Paris, I probably would not be the same person I am today.

Trey is an economics major and is thinking about adding a minor in math. When he's not in class or on the golf course, he's most likely spending time with his brothers in Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity.


A member of the Gents golf team, Trey chose Centenary as the spot to continue his golf career because he knew he'd also get a great education. He also might be a budding comedian. Visit Centenary Athletics at
