Football game at Central College circa 1977

TUESDAY, SEPT. 8, 2020

Central College hosted its Journey Scholarship 48-Hour Challenge from noon Tuesday, Aug. 25, to noon Thursday, Aug. 27. During the challenge, generous donors raised more than $185,000 for Central students, surpassing the goal!
As a reminder, in-person alumni events for Homcoming 2020, previously scheduled for Sept. 25-26, have been canceled. This includes reunion gatherings, on-campus programming and annual Schipper Golf Tournament. In place of traditional events, we plan to offer a variety of virtual activities.
We are disappointed we cannot see Central alumni, donors and friends on campus for Homecoming 2020. We also are still working on developing a robust virtual experience for the Central community to come together. You will receive additional information in the coming weeks, and you are welcome reach out to with questions or concerns.
Thank you for having a heart for others and go Dutch!
