You will be sent a Survey Monkey survey later this month to sign up if you are staying over the Thanksgiving Break. This is for security and meal preparation. You will receive another survey the first week of December regarding the holiday break. We will try and accommodate flight schedules, (within a day), etc. if you let us know in advance. Please begin to make your travel arrangements accordingly.
Interested in studying in Northern Ireland? The Irish-American scholar program is accepting applications from eligible students to study at one of five colleges in or around Belfast for fall, spring, or the full year. Eligible students must be at least of sophomore status, have a minimum 3.2 cumulative GPA, write a 500-word essay, submit two letters of reference, and be nominated by Centre College. Please see Dr. Mary Gulley in the Dean’s Office for more information.
The dates for Centre Family Weekend 2010 have been changed to Sept. 17 and 18. After checking with the Danville hotels, we learned the local rates during the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Lexington (Sept. 25-Oct. 10) will be on average $199 a night, with minimums of 3-5 nights. We assumed parents would not want to pay these rates or have to fight the predicted crowd of 600,000+ spectators and teams expected. While we have no way of knowing for certain what the impact of the World Equestrian Games will be for Danville, we felt it better not to take chances, and moved the date. We hope you will mark your calendar and make plans to join us!
Interested in being an RA? The Residence Life Office is now accepting applications from students looking to join the Residence Life Staff. All application materials can be found here. If you have any questions please contact Sarah Scott Hall or Jacob Raderer in the Student Life Office.
