Central Alumni at Iowa Cubs pre-game party

TUESDAY, JULY 26, 2022

Central College alumni from across the state gathered for an event at an Iowa Cubs game. We had a great time reconnecting, networking and having fun. Look at photos and see if you recognize classmates! Graduates in attendance spanned more than 60 years — with members of the Class of 1961 and the Class of 2022 in the stands.
In a few weeks, you will be invited to provide input about your relationship with Central, preferred ways of engaging with us and opinions about a potential fundraising campaign. We hope you participate, as your feedback will inform our plans for the future! Please be on the lookout for an email from Sunny Gonzales Eighmy ’99, vice president for advancement, inviting you to take the online survey.
Looking for something different to watch during these hot days of summer? Check out the Central Dutch Network to view previously recorded football games, faculty lectures, concerts, Commencement and more.
We also celebrate Rev. Charles Morris 70, pictured below, who was granted emeritus status on the Central Board of Trustees. His service spanned decades and influenced so many alumni. Thank you, Rev. Morris.
We are still accepting volunteers for the new student Move-In Day Meet and Greet on Friday, Aug. 19. Help welcome the Class of 2026 to campus! 

Honoring Rev. Morris
