Student Activities at the Memorial Union aren’t just fun and games! From leadership workshops to concerts and comedians to paint your own pottery nights, our engaging programs help to foster a sense of belonging at Iowa State University that leads to better academic outcomes, including increased retention and graduation rates. Higher education scholars agree that students’ involvement outside of the classroom has a positive influence on their college experience. Our programs provide students with opportunities to learn valuable skills like event planning, managing finances, networking with peers and colleagues, and collaborating with people different from themselves. These experiences and the memories made at the Memorial Union will support student success during their time on campus and beyond.
