    Cyclone Alley membership is offered exclusively through the athletics all-sport ticket package. Membership to SAA is also included in this package.

What members are saying:

"I'm in SAA because Iowa State University rocks and I want to stay connected with it forever!"

"I love the discounts, the T-shirt, the keychain, the calendar, and the BBQs. This membership gives you a chance to be a part of something uniquely Iowa State. The slogan says it all: 'Students today, alumni forever.'"

"I am in the graphic design program here, and I take advantage of the 10 percent discount at the book stores. I also use a lot of the other discounts and feel like I save at least the $20 that I paid to join."

"SAA is a great opportunity for current students and alumni to keep in touch. For graduating seniors it is a great way to find job opportunities. You also can't forget about all the free perks of being involved. GO STATE!"

"I knew I wanted to live in Charleston, S.C., so I utilized the online directory to put me in touch with ISU alumni in that area. Through e-mails and follow-up phone calls, I was able to establish relationships with the alumni, all of who helped me in different ways. One lady sent me a list of contact information of companies that may potentially be hiring, and many people forwarded my resume on to upper management in their own company and also to friends who may be of help also. Of all the alumni I contacted, one in particular was the jackpot! As a top executive, he was able to actually create a position for me. Thanks to the online directory, I was able to establish great contacts, move to an area of the States that I want to live in, and get a great job. All of the ISU alumni I talked to were very helpful and definitely went out of their way to help a fellow Iowa Stater. Sharing a degree from the same university creates a strong connection between perfect strangers and has the power to result in amazing things such as a job and friendships."
