Students at IYRS are self-motivated, entrepreneurial and inspirational. We frequently love to welcome alumni back to IYRS to share their success stories or even lead a master-class in their area of expertise.


Alumni that can’t make it back to campus still have a lot to offer our current students. We welcome contribution to our widely read blog or Inside IYRS newsletter. If you’re interested in writing, email Josh Singer, Marketing Manager.
