The ISU Alumni Association has a fan photo gallery on their website. Mark submitted a picture of the boys:
We are multigeneration Iowa Staters here. All of four of OUR parents went to ISU, and we met on a blind date our Senior year.
I remember when I was in school, my Dad got a call from one of those students who had to call Alumni and beg for money.
The student thought her day was MADE, when Dad informed her that he’d send thousands of dollars to the school.
She was understandably disappointed when he broke the news that it wasn’t a donation: it was just my tuition.
I’m not looking forward to the day when we are paying tuition. All I can say is that the boys better study hard and get good grades and hope for lots of scholarships.
My husband is an ISU grad and boy do we love those phone calls! My favorite part is how they get the ball rolling with, oh… how about a $1,000 donation? So funny… 🙂 My brother who is a CURRENT STUDENT, also gets the calls. I guess it doesn’t hurt to ask!
