The End of VIESHA- Now What?

As traditional VIESHA time arrives, we look back at the event that sparked the festival's final ending, as told by Ames City Police Commander Geoff Huff. Detective Tuttle from the Ames City Police talks about what is planned this year to prevent incidents related to off campus parties. Dr. Robert Bossleman, ISU Department Chair of Apparel, Events, and Hospitality Management, informs about the fate of the cherry pies, and Government Student Body President Dan Breitbarth and Vice President Megan Sweere talk about plans for the future in the absence of VIESHA.

Dr. Swalwell from the ISU School of Education explains her new course that allows people to study Iowa history online, with a focus on events and accomplishments often overlooked in conventional history classes. This summer will be the first edition of this program: Iowans and the Civil Rights Movement. Teachers, students, and members of the general public are invited to enroll in this free class.
