Welcome to the Governor’s Scholars Program at Centre College 2019. We are committed to the academic and personal growth of Kentucky’s next generation of civic and economic leaders. GSP at Centre provides the ideal balance of a strong liberal arts program with a full
co-curricular and residential life experience.

Schedule

The schedule for Family Day, Sunday, June 30, is as follows:

8:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.
(EST)
Families pick up scholars on their halls.
10:00 p.m. (EST) Scholars return and families depart.

Before leaving with their families, scholars must check out with their RA.

Scholars must return to campus by 10:00 p.m. EST, in time for a mandatory hall meeting.

Scholars will not be able to leave campus without the authorization and handwritten signature of parents/legal guardians. If a scholar is planning to leave campus on Family Day with someone other than a parent/legal guardian, we must know in advance, and in writing, the name of that person and his/her relationship to the scholar. You may inform us of your intentions by mail or fax us at (859) 238-5774.

In the event you are unable to visit with your scholar on Family Day, we have planned a day of activities for those scholars who will remain on campus.

No meals will be served in the Cowan Dining Hall on Family Day.
