At Centenary, we know that some of the best learning happens outside the classroom: in residence halls, during a game of intramural soccer, even on drives for late night food runs! Centenary also integrates learning through the Trek program and by organizing residence halls into World Houses.

The Trek program is a graduation requirement encompassing exploration of CAREER, CULTURE, and COMMUNITY. The mission of the Trek program is to incorporate into the required curriculum distinctive, experience-based opportunities for students to enhance their self-knowledge and social awareness through career/graduate school preparation, intercultural engagement, and civic involvement.

World Houses are a way for students to share their passions with their peers by living and learning together. Through service projects with community partners and leadership opportunities both on and off-campus. Centenary's World Houses immerse you in opportunities to do more for yourself, for others, and for the world.

World Houses

World Houses are an opportunity for students to engage with their peers and impact the local community.


Trek is designed to help students learn important skills and sharpen ones they already have to use beyond their time at Centenary.
