Need a Fundraising Opportunity for Your Student Organization?

Iowa State University Dining is offering another fundraising opportunity May 24-29, 2022 for a large conference.

Each student org would arrange a team of 5 workers for one meal for each day of the conference.

An example would be 5 people (could be different people each day) for each 3-4 hour lunch period during the event dates above.

Duties could be: supply food, serve food, prep food, clean-up of all varieties, but no actual cooking of the food.

Following the event, your organization will receive $13/hour per person, which equates to approximately $975-1040 per team.

Limited number of groups may participate.

If your group is interested please contact: Diane Schmidt, ISU Dining at

Preserve Your Organization's History with University Archives

Student organizations play an important role in college life and have a lasting impact on the University. Because of the nature of being a student sees you leave after graduating, much of the history of an organization can be lost or forgotten over time. The Iowa State University Archives invites student organizations to partner with us to help preserve your organization’s history, including especially its creation, development, priorities, and activities.  

We value the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. All organizations are welcome and part of the ISU legacy. We particularly welcome organizations of minoritized groups and activists who have often been left out, erased, or otherwise lack a sense of belonging in archives.  

For more information on how to participate, please contact Greg Bailey, University Archivist, at
