VEISHEA Is Almost Here!!!
Hey everyone! Are you all super excited that VEISHEA is almost here?! I know I am!! 🙂
What is VEISHEA you ask? Well, VEISHEA is an annual celebration held at Iowa State every spring, and actually one of the oldest traditions here! This six day event serves as a showcase and display of the Iowa State community with a wide variety of entertainment and educational events. VEISHEA was formed by combining the first letters of the original colleges at Iowa State. The word VEISHEA is pronounced (“VEE-sha”) and stands for:
– Veterinary Medicine
– Industrial Science
– Home Economics
