The Des Moines Commuter Club is a student organization that also coordinates carpooling from Des Moines. An informal collaboration of Des Moines commuters, it has been serving commuters since the 1950s.

Grant applications sought

The Culture Corps Grants Program is accepting proposals from faculty and staff interested in hiring undergraduate international students to internationalize their classes or programs.

Sponsored by the Office of International Students and Scholars and the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, the program was created to help ISU achieve the internationalization goals of the university's strategic plan.

Grant requests may not exceed $1,800 per student for the 1997-98 academic year. Application deadline is Sept. 5. However, proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the summer until funds are exhausted.
