Cyclone Life: Then and Now

Since I am just a few short weeks away from graduating, I thought it would be fun to look back at the origins of cyclonelife.net !

I was hired as a student admissions blogger at the end of my freshman year (around April 2009). The blog officially went live in September 2010 with four student bloggers, and guess who had the first post? ME.

This is what Cyclone Life used to look like back when I first started blogging.

As you can see, things have definitely changed a lot over the years. In November 2011 we underwent a massive redesign. Here’s a video of the bloggers at the photo shoot:

And this is what you all see today! The cast members have changed as we’ve graduated, but the premise behind what we do is still the same. Cyclone Life is about sharing a genuine ISU perspective, written for students (both current and prospective) by students. I have loved having the opportunity to share my ISU adventure over the past 4 years and I will undoubtedly be sad to say goodbye. This has been such a wonderful experience for me, and I hope that I’ve been able to help and inspire other students out there.
