Cyclones Forever

www.CylonesForever.iastate.edu

This website was developed to remember ISU students who have passed and honor their time and accomplishments at ISU and beyond. The site is possible due to the collaborative efforts of Megan Van Heiden, Senior Assistant Director in the Office of Student Assistance through her involvement with the Student Affairs Leadership Institute, a small group of staff members around the university who participated in the Emerging Leaders Academy and the Office of the Senior Vice President for Student Affairs. These groups identified a need for a formal student memorial to help ISU community members grieve, support the student’s family, and provide resources for support in time of crisis. This website is a memorial for students who were enrolled at the time of their death starting July 1, 2019 . The Office of Student Assistance will provide the option to family of the deceased student to add personal information and photos to the website. The death of an ISU community member can impact students, faculty, and staff in different ways. Staff hope these resources provide all Cyclones the opportunity to process information and grieve in their own way.
