What Is Your Favorite Weekend Activity at Central? My favorite thing to do on the weekends at Central would be getting together with friends and walking to the square to get coffee and have lunch. We love to explore all of the shops and bakeries in town!  

What Is Your Most Memorable Experience at Central So Far? My most memorable experience at Central has been performing in an opera with my best friends and working with amazing professors.

What is Your Favorite Thing About Pella?  I love the size of Pella. It’s not exactly a small town, but it feels like living in a small community because everyone is so friendly and kind. Pella feels very safe to me. There are so many resources available to help college students. 

Why Did You Choose Central College? I chose Central in the winter of my senior year after an amazing visit! After meeting with a few professors, learning more about choir and hearing about activities on campus, I knew this was the place I wanted to be. Central feels safe and like home.
