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!
