ISU's 150th Comes to a Close

Iowa State University concluded its yearlong sesquicentennial celebration during Veishea 2008. Over the past year, ISU Extension county staff coordinated community service projects involving ISU Extension county councils, 4-H’ers, ISU alumni and others to celebrate the sesquicentennial. The service projects ranged from tree planting to building rehabilitation to community beautification efforts.
ISU Extension recorded the Veishea sesquicentennial closing ceremony as well as interviews with Iowa State faculty and staff who were involved in planning the sesquicentennial celebration. The video and audio are available online.
