4 A Word from the editor Encircle is published by Centenary College of Louisiana © 2014 Centenary College SPRING 2014 External Relations Matt Bailey Acting Dean of Enrollment and Communication Do more. In recent conversations with Centenary students, faculty, and staff members, some common themes emerged. Everyone agreed that Centenary offers plenty of personal attention, has great professors, and is academically challenging. Many said that the College has a very warm, familylike environment. It just feels good. But one simple theme was woven throughout these discussions and struck me more than any other: do more. The prospective students applying for admission to Centenary tend to be those who do more during high school – service organizations, sports, honor societies, music, arts, church, and the like. There’s no doubt that our students do more during their college years. There are countless opportunities to learn, live, and lead on campus, and our students take full advantage. Likewise, Encircle tells stories of Centenary graduates who do more in their careers, their communities, and the world. Centenary develops leaders for a changing world – the kind of leaders who just naturally do more – and our world is better for it.

David Rowe President ON THE COVER: I took this photo of a rock cairn that is u sually under about 10-15 feet of water in our local reservoir, Lake Del Valle. Of the 29,000 acrefeet in the lake, 10,000 of that is considered “dead storage” and is inaccessible because it is below pump intakes or release valves. That remaining 19,000 acre-feet of stored water is shared by three different water districts, including us. One of those districts supplies Silicon Valley, and they need quite a bit of water to make all the high tech equipment that we all use!
