At ISU, the spirit of appreciation and gratitude is alive and well, and the yearly #CyThx campaign is designed to shine a spotlight on those who make a difference in our lives. It’s a simple way to say thank you to the people who have made a positive impact on your day, your semester, or even your life.

#CyThx encourages students, faculty, and staff to express their gratitude and acknowledge the acts of kindness, encouragement, and inspiration that often go unnoticed. It is a collaborative recognition project between the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT), Graduate and Professional Student Senate, ISU Learning Communities, Multicultural Student Affairs, Student Engagement, Student Government, and Student Union Board.

In 2022 (our fifth year), we received over 800 #CyThx submissions, a significant increase from 300 in 2021.

This year, we collected over 1900 #CyThx submissions representing 171 units at Iowa State.

We look forward to celebrating #CyThx with you again in November 2024.
