SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - There are many new things going on at Centenary College of Louisiana for the 2022-23 school year.

Students went back to the classroom Monday, Aug. 22.

Over the summer, freshmen went out of the country for a program called Centenary in Paris. It’s a program that sends students to Paris, France to start their college careers. A special exhibit featuring student photography from this summer’s trip to Parish recently opened at the Norton Art Gallery. It will be on display through Sept. 4.

Several students also participated in a medical program at Willis-Knighton over the summer. They worked with local doctors for more than a month with the goal of getting their feet wet in the field before applying to medical school in a few years.

This fall, students will also have an opportunity to gain knowledge in a new subject. Kinesiology will now be offered starting this semester. Right now, 25 students are enrolled for classes.

And in the sports arena, the new football program at Centenary is moving along. Click here for bios of coaches, and information about several camps and clinics that were hosted over the summer.

Students are also breaking barriers in the biology department. Last semester, students created the first diverse anatomical models in the hopes of giving students options to use models that are more diverse.
