Centenary College in Hackettstown, New Jersey, while having undergone many changes over the years since its founding in 1867, has remained true to one core principle: quality education. Once a women-only preparatory school, it has evolved to both admit men and grant four-year and postgraduate degrees, and now serves about 1,700 students each year. Known for its Equestrian Center, Centenary offers a unique teaching certification program in therapeutic riding, as well as service-oriented majors like global studies, environmental science and counseling. In 2013 alone, students volunteered more than 20,000 hours of community services to local non-profit groups. Notable on-campus structures include the innovative Littell Technology Center, as well as the Lackland Center, which houses the student-run radio station WNTI. And students of diverse backgrounds are welcome here; the Summer Culture and Language Program immerses foreign applicants in their new environment and in the English language, to ensure a smooth transition to college. As a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon program, Centenary College offers plenty of financial aid, and also is accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges.
