Centenary College of Louisiana began as a public institution known as the College of Louisiana on February 18, 1825, and has enjoyed a long and
distinguished history. The years have brought a multitude of changes to the school--the name has changed, the location has changed, and the student
population has changed. However, what remains steadfast at Centenary is a commitment to the highest standards of academic excellence, and an
environment that fosters growth and achievement.
Within these pages, students, alumni, faculty, and friends of the college will discover the Centenary of the past--the early days in Jackson, Louisiana, the devastation of the Civil War, the move to the
Shreveport campus, and the championship football team that once was. Vintage photographs of the school's founders and supporters, the campuses, and the students will evoke memories of years past and
reflect the traditions that continue at Centenary today. Accompanied by informative captions, the photographs include aerial views of the physical layout of the school, early sporting events, academic
settings, and notable figures who contributed to the institution as graduates, teachers, and dynamic leaders.
