Since 2018, New Student Programs has provided a Family Calendar with important reminders about Iowa State campus happenings and academic events. This is provided to family members at no charge to those who attend orientation and it is our hope to produce the 2021-2022 Family Calendar in late spring. A PDF version of this calendar will live here once completed.
