As alumni, your relationship with Iowa Western doesn’t end at commencement; rather, that is simply the beginning of your journey as part of the Iowa Western family. The Iowa Western Alumni Association keeps alumni informed and invested in our school and activities.
No matter how long ago you graduated, you are always welcome back to campus. During the year, the Iowa Western Alumni Association hosts a variety of events throughout the area – we’d love to have you join us at an upcoming event or stop by campus to say “hi”!
On an ongoing basis, the Iowa Western Alumni Association collects stories and updates from alumni accomplishments to use in various publications, including the Iowa Western magazine. If you have an update to share, such as a marriage, birth of a child, award, or new job, please email [email protected] or contact Emily O’Rourke, Alumni Director at (712) 325-3269.
It is said that you are a student for a short while, but an alum for life! We hope you take advantage of the many opportunities to stay connected with your alma mater, and with each other. Please feel free to contact Emily O’Rourke to become involved with the Alumni Association.
