July 20th-21st, 2018

Fresh Start is Centenary’s summer orientation event. 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.

Fresh Start 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 the Office of Student Life.

Can’t wait to CU soon!
