Fall has officially begun and with it a new academic year, which means campus is once again buzzing with the return of students to in-person classes. With this season comes a few of our favorite things, including Homecoming, the opening of the Alumni Plaza, and the next shipment of wine for CWU Wine Club members.

With fans welcome back to CWU football games, it’s time to join your fellow Wildcats in the Alumni Plaza at Homecoming on October 23, and the remaining home games on October 30 and November 13! All current CWU Alumni Association and Wildcat Athletic Association members will have exclusive access to the Alumni Plaza, which will provide complimentary halftime dinner and an Athletics sponsored cash bar for beer and wine. Join the CWU Alumni Association or learn more about supporting student athletes and becoming part of the CWU Wildcat Athletic Association before the game for faster access to the plaza.

If you want to bring your RV to campus for home football games, RV parking passes are available for purchase for the 2021 season. Grab your friends and family and join us for football and tailgating, right in the heart of the action. Visit our RV parking website for pricing and more information. Hurry, spots are limited!

The CWU Wine Club is currently preparing for fall shipments! If you haven’t heard, last spring the CWU Alumni Association partnered with alumni-owned Nefarious Cellars, based in Chelan, WA, to launch our very first wine club. The wine in each shipment is hand-selected for the Wildcat family by Central alumna and winemaker Heather Neff. The fall sign-up deadline is October 23, so sign up for one of the four shipment options today at   

All CWU Alumni Association members are invited to join our All-Members Meeting on October 23. The meeting will be at the SURC in room 137 and last from 2:00-3:00 p.m. We hope you can join us and then head over to the Homecoming football game to cheer on the Wildcats!

We are calling on the Wildcat family to nominate outstanding alumni for a 4 Under 40, Distinguished Alumni, or Legacy Award for the 2022 Distinguished Alumni Awards. Nominees are reviewed by a committee and those selected will be honored at a ceremony on the Ellensburg campus next spring.

Central Washington University is seeking talented individuals to join the Wildcat workforce, and we would love to see alumni return to campus and become some of Central’s newest employees! If you are currently searching for a job, or are curious about what open positions CWU currently has posted, visit and click on “View All Jobs.” We hope you find something that sparks your interest and would love to see you return to Central!

We hope your fall is off to a great start and we hope to see you back on campus soon! Go cats!
