    People are actually members of the alumni association?

    Try over 50,000 of us. No excuse not to be. The only BigXII school with more is Texas.

    Well, the university gets money from the state, federal govt.(?) and tuition. I dont think they're stuggling for cash.

    Are you kidding me? ISU faculty salaries may be competitive, but just barely. There are all kinds of construction projects in the works that need funded.

    $100/year for the Alumni Association is not too much. You get the cool calendar with pictures of campus and discounts at a lot of places. I know that 20%? discount at T-Galaxy and the UBS comes in handy.

    The discounts in clothing alone are reason enough to become a member.

    CBS also offers the discount - 15% if I remember correctly... (Not many people used it while I worked there...)

    Dunno what other discounts you guys get, but I have no problem paying for my Student Alumni card in discounts (then again, I live in Ames and we only pay $15 for ours... plus we get a T-shirt)

    Actually, about half of ISU's money comes from private/corporate support.

    ISU has almost 200,000 living alums, 50,000 of which are members of the Alumni Association. That means 1-in-4 have joined the Alumni Association, that's pretty significant.

    Yeah. Unfortunately, though, it pretty much has to be that way. College would cost at least twice as much as it already does for students if that wasn't the case..
