Alpha Zeta students attending NALC this year will get to experience a brand new component to NALC - a local service project! Everyone will be participating in VEISHEA at Iowa State University.
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
- Industrial Science
- Home Economics
What Type of Service Will We Be Doing?
