Welcome to the Cyclone Family!

At Iowa StISU Parents meet with senior leaderhip at the Knoll.ate University, one of our key priorities is educating students and preparing them to make a difference in the world.  To facilitate students' personal and academic success, Iowa State University faculty and staff partner with parents and families.  This partnership enhances students' educational experiences and contributes to their well-being. This website communicates resources for parents and families to help students achieve their academic and personal goals.  Knowledge of University resources also promotes an appropriate role for parents within the educational process and campus community.  Together, we are all a part of the Cyclone Family!



This monthly resource is delivered directly to your e-mail inbox and helps keep you informed of timely topics and campus services that are available to help your favorite Cyclone succeed!

Volunteers NeededAre you a parent or family member that enjoys traveling to Ames and talking about your experience as a member of the Iowa State Parent and Family Programs community? Then we need you to help us welcome the next generation of Cyclone families at June Orientation. Each year, Parent and Family Programs sponsors a table in order to connect new parents and families to the organization and answer any questions they may have about their new role as an ISU parent or family member! We need you to be a part of this in order to share your experiences as an ISU parent or family member, answer any questions they may have, and help ease any anxiety they might be feeling. The Resource Fair will take place in the Memorial Union from 11:15am-1:00pm on Orientation days. As a Family Volunteer, you will be joined by Lauren, the Parent and Family Programs graduate assistant, who will help set up the materials, answer any questions you may have, and field any logistical questions. If you are interested in helping with this opportunity, please fill out the following survey: 


If you wish to volunteer with a spouse, other family member, or another Iowa State parent or family member, please only fill out one survey. There will be an opportunity to put down both names. We are looking for one or two volunteers per Orientation date.

Filling out the survey only expresses interest in volunteering. It does not officially sign you up for a date and time. You will be contacted separately to finalize details of your volunteer commitment. Thank you for your consideration!
