Classes in Reunion: Uniting to sustain the future of Central State

What is reunion class giving?

A reunion campaign is an inspiring way to give back to Central State University during your reunion year. Reunion giving is a cherished tradition among Centralians, and your class has a unique opportunity to contribute to the legacy of your alma mater. As alumni, our reunion gifts significantly improve the lives of current students who walk the same halls and classrooms we once did. These donations help bridge the gap between tuition revenue and the full cost of educating a student at Central State University. By giving back, we can directly impact the quality of education and opportunities available to today's students. 

Simply find your class at and take the first step toward making a difference that will last for generations to come. 

Giving is key to Central State’s commitment to academic excellence and access. To learn more about how you can support critical needs across the University, contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 937-376-6640 or
