Cyclone Life

From Ames, IA

I wear many different hats at
Iowa State!

I’m Iowa State’s biggest fan, most loyal bird (move over Lancelot and Elaine), and photographed more
than the president.

I give great high-fives, have been known to break out in the evolution of dance, and dominate other mascots (you know who I’m talking about! 😉 ).

This is my Cyclone Life!

CAll to Leadership: Apply to be a Cyclone Aide!

When I first applied for the position of being a Cyclone Aide, I truly had no idea what I was getting myself into.

I wasn’t expecting to make 40 new best friends or to become a more confident individual. At the time, there was no way I could have ever pictured myself having a positive impact on the 6,000+ new students that were coming to campus for the first time in the fall.

I didn’t know it was going to entail problem solving on the fly or having to face some of my bigger fears such as public speaking. If I had known, I almost wonder if I would’ve still applied. The reason for this is that I never thought of myself as someone who could do any of those things. I always had thought that there was someone out there who was more qualified than me and would allow my own doubts talk me out of trying for a position such as this one.

If you’re anything like me, let me be the first to say that you need to apply now. By putting myself out there in such a way, I opened myself for personal growth that I never knew that I needed to go through. There is really no replacement for this experience, and I hope that if you decide to take the step to start your own journey as a Cyclone Aide that you will be open to every part of the adventure you have ahead of you.

Cyclone Aide applications are due October 7. Apply today!

Nicole is a senior in Industrial Engineering. She is a 2018 Cyclone Aide.
