Centenary University Alert

Centenary University Alert: Please visit the Centenary University COVID-19 area of the website to learn the latest updates.

In annual celebration of Veteran’s Day and to recognize the valor, courage, and sacrifice of those who served or are currently serving, The Honor Tree is always on display at different locations on campus. After Veteran’s Day, The Honor Tree is moved back to its usual and customary location in the Veteran’s Resource Center.

The Gratitude Journal is also made available to the campus community to write a message of thanks to those who have served or are currently serving.

The Honor Tree is available year-round to hang a color-coded star in support of our troops and to honor family, friends, colleagues, alumni, and those in the greater Centenary community who have served selflessly.

The Office of Veteran Services will continue to fulfill emailed requests for stars from students/student veterans/veteran dependents/staff/faculty/alumni/family /friends/community, who are not located on the main campus.  Please email Margie.Pavlichko@centenaryuniversity.edu with the particulars.
