Iowa State University Alumni Association
 

Alumni & Members

Alumni, students, and friends of Iowa State University are located throughout the world. The ISU Alumni Association is continuously learning more and more about these constituents. The Association's ultimate goals are to attract and retain members and to involve ISU constituents in the life and work of the University. Serving members is at the center of everything the Association does—from producing an award-winning magazine to providing innovative ways for ISUAA members to connect online to ISU, to the Association, and with each other.

Alumni
254,251 Iowa State alumni live in 149 countries. A total of 96.4% of alumni live in the United States; 3.6% live world-wide – from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. Membership in the alumni population – those holding degrees from ISU – totalled more than 39,694 in FY17, representing 75.2% of total Alumni Association members. Young alumni represent more than 22.3% of all alumni, 7.4% of whom have active Alumni Association memberships. (Source: ISU Alumni Association Country, State, County Report, June 2017.)

Students
Fall 2016 enrollment at Iowa State was 36,660. Academic year 2016-2017 student membership in the Alumni Association reached 5,582 members. Seniors made up the largest category of members, with freshmen close behind. SAA membership represented 15.2% of total students. (Sources: ISU Fact Book 2016-2017 and ISU Alumni Association SAA Report, June 2017.)

Friends
Friends of Iowa State are perhaps too numerous to count, but we do keep in touch with a special group of non-alumni—former students, spouses, parents, ISU faculty and staff, and others who have chosen to strengthen their affiliation with ISU through Association membership. More than 7,487 non-alumni friends represented 14.1% of the Association’s FY17 total membership. (Source: ISU Alumni Association Membership Statistics Report, June 2017.)
