Plaque Text

"Veishea, founded in 1922, is the nation's largest student-run celebration. The name is an acronym for the colleges at Iowa State in 1922 - Veterinary Medicine, Engineering, Industrial Science, Home Economics, and Agriculture. Each spring, Veishea attracts thousands of people to campus for student performances, cherry pies, a huge parade featuring student-built floats, and open houses sponsored by academic units and student clubs."
