10 Signs You Go To Central College

If you’re like me, you absolutely love your school and everything about it. Central College isn’t on a lot of people’s radar because who wants to go to a small town in Iowa for a college education? Sign me up! Even though Central is a small school with a mere 1,500 students it is easy to spot current students or alumnae, because of these 10 things.

1. You want to clap when someone breaks a dish or glass in a public place.

Because tradition. Enough said.

2. Cuifs means something TOTALLY different to you.

Central Market aka Central University of Iowa Food Services aka CUIFS.

3. You have participated in a lemming race or two.

Who are you to not partake in tradition of racing down Peace Mall and climbing onto the island? It’s a must.
