LegaCY Club

Being part of the Iowa State
family is a lifetime adventure.

As a parent or grandparent, you can provide the start of your child or grandchild's connection to Iowa State through the newly-expanded (July 2017) ISU LegaCY Club. Enrolled children receive exclusive birthday gifts and invitations to spirited events that are designed to educate legacies about the university and strengthen their bond to the place loved by Cyclones everywhere.

LegaCY Club offers gifts and
benefits for little Cyclones everywhere!

All legacy gifts are age-appropriate and therefore are not given retroactively. A child's age at the time of enrollment will determine the first gift received. As a member of the LegaCY Club, your child or grandchild will receive:

  • Birth to age 2:
    Cy’s Surprise, an exclusive children’s book written and illustrated by Iowa State legacies Kate Bruns '99 and Tara Gartin '87, respectively, and funded by Ana Hays McCracken '84 and Ed McCracken '66
  • Age 2:
    Cyclone growth chart
  • Age 5:
    Cyclone backpack
  • Age 7:
    Cyclone bank, to encourage saving for college
  • Age 10:
    Cyclone school notebook and pen
  • Age 13:
    Cyclone sleepover pillowcase
  • Age 16:
    Cyclone car decal and keychain for new drivers
  • All ages:
    Cyclone birthday cards
  • Upon graduation from Iowa State:

  • Upon enrollment:

Legacies have the opportunity to attend special events throughout their childhood and during their time as an ISU student, including:

  • Homecoming LegaCY Gift Giveaway
  • Family Weekend Movie Night
  • Senior Send-offs for high school seniors heading to ISU
  • Orientation LegaCY Gift Giveaway for students attending ISU
  • LegaCY Move-in Brunch during move-in week (starting Aug. 2018)
  • Legacy banner signing at Destination: Iowa State
