Veishea Subsitute Events Planned at Iowa State
AMES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa State University is planning two events to replace what was the annual Veishea festival.
University President Steven Leath said Monday that a February celebration will feature the sale of cherry pies as part of Valentine's Day activities. A celebration of the arts will be held in April.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports that plans for the next academic year include a community service project, a parade and college showcase and an event to welcome students back to campus for the start of spring semester.
Leath ended the Veishea festival in August 2014, saying the alcohol-fueled party placed students at risk.
