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.
