Register for Big Event 14!

BIG Event 14 is Saturday, April 2, 2022.

Our Purpose and Origin

At the Big Event, the Centenary community comes together to act as neighbors helping neighbors. Together, we work to beautify the surrounding neighborhoods of Centenary College, to show our gratitude for their support of our community, and to allow us to give back and connect with the Shreveport community.

Community engagement at Centenary is a really important part of the College's culture. Students begin with a service day during first year orientation and continue that momentum throughout the year. I am honored to serve as a member of the Big Event Executive Board which allows students, like myself, to help design service days that provide more opportunities to serve our wonderful community.
