Barlows

“We’re life members and very proud of it. Our commitment allows IU and the IUAA to keep reaching out and having an impact in people’s lives. IU always seems to push open doors for people, and nobody is left out. IU never veers off course—Herman B Wells did something magical. ”

Tim & Mallory Klausmeier

“We courted at Assembly Hall, got engaged at Showalter Fountain, and played the fight song at our wedding. IU was meant for us, and we were meant for each other. We’re IU alumni. We show our love for IU with a joint life membership in the IU Alumni Association.”

“The IUAA helps me stay connected to IU through my community in Colorado, which is important to me because it helps me give back and create an impact wherever I am. I don’t think a lot of people realize that IU truly is everywhere—and how that can influence their futures.”

“My kids see the love I have for IU, and they see the love IU gives back. Every IU visit—and we make a lot of them—is another positive influence on what they do now and in the future.

“I’m an IU alum. I’m an IU Alumni Association member. I’m deeply rooted in IU.”

“Meeting with IU alumni during law school has been invaluable. Every single one of them has made the leap from student to professional. I take a little bit from each person, and mold it into a direction, a path. And as a professional, I’ll be doing the same thing—giving back to the school and the community.”

Eric Gonzaba

“I remember walking into my first IU class ever, Professor Michael McGerr’s survey of U.S. history, feeling tremendously terrified and unprepared. But after just one 50-minute lecture, I was in love with the past. To this day, I point to that moment as my inspiration in pursuing a graduate degree in history.”

Julie Wolinsky

“I’m always discovering new reasons to love IU. My degree, my dearest friends, professors I still visit—they keep me learning and inspire my life’s direction. The power of the IU network is the reason I give back to IU as a mentor.

“I’m an IU alum. I’m an IU Alumni Association member. IU connects me.”

“As a member of the IUAA, I have a life-long bond with IU that has followed me since graduation. IU is a part of who I am, and that deserves to go where I go.

“In Colorado, when I meet fellow alumni, we have an unspoken connection because of IU. By serving our community and showing future generations our love for IU, we are keeping the many IU traditions alive in our new home.”
