Cyclones everywhere coming together to serve others and their communities!
Have you spent time volunteering in your community or with a group? Report your hours here.
Cy’s Days of Service is designed to unite alumni worldwide in community service. It's a great opportunity to help spread the pride alumni have in Iowa State University, recognize the combined efforts of Cyclones everywhere, and show how Iowa Staters can change the world.
The concept behind Cy's Days of Service is simple. Each year, all ISU alumni, family, and friends complete service opportunities of their choice -- whether they're specially designed for Cy's Days of Service or if they're among the activities our generous Cyclone family members are already pursuing. Participants are encouraged to dress in ISU apparel and snap photos of their efforts to help showcase Cy's Days of Service pride. Our goal for the period between May 2017 and April 2018 is to have at least 500 participants and log more than 30,000 hours of service.
Who can participate?
This event is open to all alumni and friends. You can participate by yourself, with fellow ISU alums, or even with your family. If you have designed a group project you want to promote, email Lainey Crawford (A)('16 event mgmt) at email@example.com or give her a toll-free call at (877) 478-2586 to get some help spreading the word and recruiting your fellow Cyclones.
