The fall term got underway Monday at Centenary College. But first-year students have been involved in college life for several weeks.

They just finished hanging an exhibition at Centenary’s Meadows Museum featuring artwork they created when they spent 10 days in Paris earlier this month.

About 130 students took part in the inaugural "Centenary in Paris" program, which offers all freshmen a trip to France as a gateway to their college coursework.
