Fresh Start Day: July 8-9, 2016

Fresh Start is Centenary's summer orientation event and the goal is for our future students to meet with their Professors and First Year Leaders, but most importantly, with each other. The students will be able to stay overnight in the dorms and experience what it is like to be a cyclone.

This year Fresh Start is being held on July 8th to 9th and includes a variety of breakout sessions for parents and family as well. If you have any questions at all about the event, please call or e-mail me and I will be sure to provide you with the information. If you are unable to attend the event due to existing plans or proximity, you will be missed, but we understand completely!



If you would like to book the Residence Inn Marriott in Mount Olive, NJ, please mention 'Fresh Start' to receive a discounted rate
