Member & Visitor Services

Sandy Larson simultaneously provides new innovations and historical background to the CYtes team. She manages the production timelines of one of our most popular publications: the CYtes Guide to Ames and Iowa State University. Sandy also assists with event calendar and website maintenance, communications vendor negotiations, and provides creative inspiration as needed. Since 1997, Sandy has worn multiple hats at the Bureau, making her an invaluable human resource for staff and members alike.

Beyond spending time with her sons, family and friends, Sandy believes there is no better way to relax than finding the perfect spot on a sunny beach and listening to the ocean waves. She is also an advocate for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and pace-walked a marathon on Catalina Island in support of a young child in remission.

Favorite thing about Ames and Iowa State University: The relationship of the Ames and Iowa State University community is unique and inspiring. Even though they are two entirely different entities all their own, it is familial, supportive and uplifting.
