We shall explain a simple remarkable stability phenomenon regarding the centers of the group algebras of the symmetric groups in n letters, as n goes to infinity. The same type of stability phenomenon extends to a wide class of finite groups including wreath products and finite general linear groups. Such stability has connections and applications to the cohomology rings of Hilbert schemes of n points on algebraic surfaces.
