Alumni, by the numbers

They're the largest college or university alumni group in Iowa. They live in all 99 Iowa counties, all 50 states and 115 countries. Here's a quick numerical glance at the people who call Iowa State their alma mater.

Longtime alums are back

Alumni celebrating their 50-year reunion and "upperclassmen" who've passed that milestone are on campus today and tomorrow for Alumni Days. Some 70 alumni from the class of 1964 and another 200 visitors, including alums from earlier classes and spouses, are back.

They have a full class load over the next few days. Events include college receptions; tours of the Campanile, State Gym and campus art; and the traditional banquet at which 50-year alums receive medallions.
