Centenary students, faculty, and staff depart for 5th annual Centenary in Paris program

SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary College's newest students departed Shreveport for the French capital this morning, kicking off the one of a kind, nine day international academic adventure known as Centenary in Paris. Check out the photo gallery below for more Paris send-off photos!

Centenary in Paris, celebrating its 5th anniversary this year, is a unique academic experience that allows Centenary students to spend one of their first weeks of college learning in an international setting. Students form deep bonds with their classmates and professors as they explore Paris through courses focused on art, history, music, literature, STEM, and more. Look for Paris updates on the official Centenary College social media accounts - Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The Centenary in Paris program represents the first of several chances for Centenary students to study abroad, and for two years the College has been ranked #1 in the nation among baccalaureate colleges for the percentage of students who have completed an international educational experience.

Students participating in the Centenary in Paris program began classwork in Shreveport on August 6. They return on August 17, wrap up their coursework, and prepare for the return of upperclassmen and the opening of the traditional fall semester on August 27.
