Wildcats to Watch

Showcasing Engaged Students


The Office of the Provost is excited to highlight Central's diverse students and celebrate all of their many accomplishments. Once each month, we will highlight some Central students who have been nominated by faculty and staff across campus. Our students work on our campuses, they engage in research with faculty and staff, they study abroad, they volunteer in our communities, and they continue to engage with Central once they graduate. We hope you will be inspired by these amazing people and their accomplishments. Be sure to check back to see all of the amazing things our Central students and alums are doing!

These are Wildcats to Watch!
