Veishea 2010

Yesterday, Kevin and I headed to Ames to spend the day with the kids. Iowa State University was celebrating Veishea...
What is VEISHEA?

VEISHEA is an annual celebration held at Iowa State each spring, and one of its oldest traditions. It serves as a showcase and display of the Iowa State community with a wide variety of educational and entertainment events.

What does "VEISHEA" stand for?

VEISHEA was named in 1922 by Professor Frank D. Paine, Department of General Engineering. He combined the first letters of the colleges at that time, and the name has stuck ever since. The word VEISHEA (pronounced "VEE-sha") stands for:

  • Veterinary Medicine
  • Engineering
  • Industrial Science
  • Home Economics
  • Agriculture

We had a great time walking miles around campus, Kris, Melinda, Allison, Emmy, and Travis all joined us. We enjoyed the parade, and all the booths. The campus was beautiful with flowering trees and bushes, and we couldn't have asked for better weather, 64 degrees and sunny!
