Rockin' the Red Polo

23 Aug 2017 12:16 PM


Just like on any other typical day, I logged onto my ISU email to check my emails. As I was browsing through, I opened up an email from ISU admissions saying I had been recommended to apply to be a Cyclone Aide. First thing that came in my mind? "Nope, never going to happen. There is no way a shy person like me could ever be a Cyclone Aide." It was one of those things I wanted to do it but I wasn't sure if I was capable. I ignored the email and the application link for quite some time, until I received another email saying to apply.
