Centenary Admission hosts Fall Open House October 20

SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary College of Louisiana hosts its Fall Open House on Saturday, October 20, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The program introduces prospective students and families to Centenary’s distinctive academic programs and orients them to the College’s 65-acre campus in Shreveport’s Highland neighborhood.

“Fall Open House is one of my favorite events hosted by the Admission Office,” says new admission counselor Kaleb Behm ’18. “Every year high school students have this great opportunity to get an inside look at Centenary to see if they can picture themselves joining us in the coming years.”

The Open House begins with breakfast followed by an interactive campus tour led by Student Ambassadors. Visitors will then break out into groups for personalized Admission and Financial Aid information sessions led by Centenary Admission staff. Lunch will be provided by Sodexo, Centenary’s on-campus food service, in the Fitness Center, and the day will conclude with an academic browse in Centenary’s Magale Library. Open House visitors will be able to speak with professors and current students to learn more about academic programs and student life at the browse.

Centenary sophomore Meg Hamilton, a double major in biology and neuroscience, is looking forward to participating in her first open house as a Student Ambassador.

“I’m excited to be on the other side getting to know prospective students and families and making them feel at home,” says Hamilton. “When I attended this event as a prospective student, the Ambassadors really welcomed me, and I’m looking forward to doing the same.”

High school seniors who attend the Open House and apply to Centenary by December 15 will automatically qualify for the $2,500 per year Campus Visit Scholarship. Registration is available online at centenary.edu/openhouse. For more information, contact the Office of Admission at 800.234.4448 or 318.869.5131.
