The Perks of Pella

Central College is located in winsome, walkable Pella, Iowa. We have Dutch heritage, old-world architecture, fabulous bakeries, laid-back coffee shops, Fortune 500 companies and a world-famous tulip festival. Pella has a charming, small-town feel with big-city perks — plus we’re just 40 miles from Iowa’s capital of Des Moines and minutes from Lake Red Rock!

There’s a lot to love so come along with Scott Siepker, the “Iowa Nice Guy,” as he takes us to some of our students’ favorite spots around town!
