New Season

The days are getting longer and the sun is starting to shine more often, which means spring is just around the corner. As winter fades away and the new season arrives, we hope to be able to connect with you back in Ellensburg, or in your area at one of our regional events!

First up, we are heading across the country to Washington DC to meet up with fellow Wildcats at Kirwan’s on the Wharf. If you’re in the area, join us for appetizers and beverages while you network and connect with other Central alumni from throughout the greater DC metro area. Please RSVP if you would like to attend, and we look forward to seeing you on March 12.

If you’re in the Ellensburg area on March 18, be sure to join us for our annual Cornerstone Pie Takeover! A percentage of the revenue generated throughout the day will go towards advancing CWU and the Wildcat experience through scholarships, events, mentorships, and programming, so stop by to support the CWU Alumni Association and current and future Wildcats.

Once spring officially begins, we are calling all alumni who live in or around Seattle to join us for a Wildcat Networking Night at Hughes Marino on March 26. There, you will have the opportunity to network with business and industry professionals while enjoying hosted food and beverages. Learn more about this event or get your tickets today by visiting Wildcat Networking Night event page. 

At the beginning of next month, join us back on campus on Friday, April 3 to celebrate distinguished alumni and donors for their contributions to the university, and to recognize the class of 1970 as they celebrate their 50-year. Enjoy appetizers, beverages, dinner, and an award ceremony at the 2020 Distinguished Alumni Awards. Get your tickets today!  

Have you purchased your tickets for CWU Night with the Seattle Mariners yet? Tickets for the May 15 game are on sale now, and when you purchase them through the special CWU ticket link, you will also receive a co-branded Mariners and CWU Henley hoodie at the pregame, while supplies last. Grab your friends and get your tickets today to one of our biggest events of the year!

With spring upon us, it is time to start thinking about graduation. We are offering an exclusive 50% discount to upcoming graduates on lifetime memberships to the alumni association, which also comes with a free diploma frame or $50 Wildcat Shop gift card. You can also give the gift of a CWU Alumni Association membership to the special Wildcats in your life, but hurry, this offer is only good for a limited time. 

Have you signed up for your 1st Security Bank Wildcat Card yet? This credit card is available to all Wildcats as part of the alumni association affinity program, which also offers a free Crimson Visa Debit Card when you open a checking account at 1st Security Bank. Visit for more information and start showing your Wildcat pride with every purchase you make while also giving back to CWU.  

We look forward to seeing you all this spring as we network and connect with the Wildcat Family, and hope you have a great end to your winter. Go Cats!
