On April 19, the Wilson Chapter took part in Iowa State University VEISHEA celebration by hosting their annual Pie Your Professor event. The event was part of the Campus showcase, which takes part during VEISHEA Campus Cookouts. During the Campus Cookouts, colleges showcase their student's accomplishments, clubs, students, and organizations with Iowa State students, faculty, and staff.

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

Today, VEISHEA is organized in three parts, and is one of the largest student led organizations in the nation. There are two General co-chairs, an Executive Board, and committees. The General co-chairs chair the Executive Board and oversee the VEISHEA committees. The executive board is made up of the chairs of each of the 14 VEISHEA committees - Entertainment, Public Relations, Parade, etc. Rachel Owen, the 2011-2012 Wilson Chapter Chancellor, was one of the 2013 General co-chairs. In addition, we had various brothers who served on the Executive Board and on the committees.
