Over a century ago, Central's alumni first began to organize. They held reunions, cheered on athletic teams, and convinced Olympia to continue building the college. Today we represent over 100,000 alumni and play a critical role in keeping Central among the best and most innovative universities in the Northwest. We still hold reunions, cheer athletic teams, and help represent Central in Olympia, today we do much more.
