Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Ohio State Alumni Club of Iowa. While membership is free and open to anyone and everyone, we strongly encourage all Alumni Members to maintain Active membership in the Alumni Association and show support for our mutual alma mater by participating in Alumni Club of Iowa activities, becoming a club leader, or providing financial support.
The following describes the levels of membership recognized by our club’s constitution.
Individuals who received an associate, bachelor, graduate, professional, or honorary degree from The Ohio State University. This also includes medical resident graduates of the University.
There are three types of Alumni Members: 1) Sustaining Members, who are Ohio State graduates who make monthly commitments to the Ohio State Alumni Association of at least $10 or single gifts of $75 or more annually; 2) Life Members who made a one-time donation prior to the Life Member program’s discontinuation in 2012; and 3) all other Alumni who are not Sustaining or Lifetime Members of the OSUAA. As specified by our club’s constitution as a chartered chapter of the Ohio State Alumni Association, only Sustaining and Lifetime members may hold office in the Alumni Club of Iowa.
We encourage Sustaining Members renewing their Alumni Association membership to designate the Alumni Club of Iowa’s scholarship fund as the beneficiary of your donation. It’s an opportunity to ensure your contribution is directly channeled back to our club’s scholarship fund. Life Members who wish to make a monetary contribution to the Alumni Association are also encouraged to designate their donation be directed to our club’s scholarship fund.
