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
More than 248,290 Iowa State alumni live in nearly 150 countries. A total of 95.2% of alumni live in the United States; 4.8% live world-wide – from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. Membership in the alumni population – those holding degrees from ISU – totaled more than 39,676 in FY15, representing 75.1% of total Alumni Association members. Young alumni represent more than 23.7% of all alumni, 7.8% of whom have active Alumni Association memberships. (Source: ISU Alumni Association Country, State, County Report, June 2016.)

Students
Fall 2015 enrollment at Iowa State was 36,001. Academic year 2015-2016 student membership in the Alumni Association reached 5,472 members. Seniors made up the largest category of members, with freshmen close behind. Future Alumni Network membership represented 15.2% of total students. (Sources: ISU Fact Book 2015-2016 and ISU Alumni Association SAA Report, June 2016.)

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 6,358 non-alumni friends represented 12.1% of the Association’s FY15 total membership. (Source: ISU Alumni Association Membership Statistics Report, June 2016.)
