Make a Difference

Time is running out! Make your gift before the end of our fiscal year, June 30, to support Central College student scholarships, academic programing and experiences on and off campus.

Why Central?

Why should you choose Central College? Ask Central students and they’ll likely tell you about the feeling they got as soon as they arrived on campus — that they’d found a new family, a new home and a new best fur-iend (our mascot, Big Red). Find your place, make your home and build a life at Central!

Forever Dutch®

Being Forever Dutch is more than a tagline.

It means being a part of a tradition of excellence in academics, athletics and professionalism beyond your time in college, and it means you will always be a member of this community.

From the moment you step on campus, you become a part of the Central family. Meet the students, alumni, donors and friends who know what it means to be Forever Dutch.

Warm Welcomes Last a Lifetime

Eric Sickler ’83 first visited Central College one cold, snowy afternoon more than 40 years ago. Today, he is giving back so future students can experience the warm, caring community that is Central.
