Overview of Centennial
Nestled in the heart of Colorado, Centennial is a haven for liberal individuals who are trying to escape the fast-paced lifestyle found in many large east coast cities. With the neighboring Rocky Mountains attracting many athletic, energetic individuals, Centennial has been noted for being extremely safe and easy to navigate.

Living in Centennial, CO
Centennial is a very new city, formed after five men at a breakfast table decided there were numerous advantages to incorporating the unincorporated portions of Arapahoe County in the summer of 1998. They established a committee of volunteers called the Arapahoe Citizens for Self-Determination and filed a petition signed by 2,500 people with the district court, asking for an election to decide the fate of the city of Centennial.
The city was named after the year Colorado was admitted to the Union, 1876, which marked the centennial year of the United States Declaration of Independence. With 100,000 people living in the area at the time the city was officially created, Centennial marks the largest incorporation in the history of the United States. Though some confusion still remains as locals mistake the area for Aurora, Englewood and Littleton because of conflicting zip codes, apartments in Centennial are very popular.
Centennial Work and Study
Arapahoe Community College and Jones International Online University may be the only schools in town, but there are a number of educational opportunities located 14 miles away in the metropolis of Denver. The University of Colorado and Colorado State University have campuses in town and join the University of Denver and Art Institute of Colorado, all offering students in the area an unrivaled college education.
Most Centennial residents looking for work take advantage of the booming industries in Denver, which is the largest city in 600 miles and thus has become a hub for goods and services in the Western mountain states. Denver is noted for having the highest percentage of government workers outside of Washington, D.C., as the federal agencies based in the area employ 12 percent of workers in the city.
The education, healthcare, science, social assistance and waste management industries are also very prevalent here, providing jobs for the approximately 32 percent of workers who move to Colorado for an active, outdoor lifestyle. Rent a Centennial apartment, and enjoy the best of corporate America in a beautiful, serene environment.
