"Leaders INspiring Connections"

plan alternative activities

Students leading Iowa State's Veishea 2005 executive board have reinvented their organization -- with the support of university administrators -- to focus on a number of community and campus service projects throughout the academic year.

The Veishea executive board has formed a new group, "Leaders INspiring Connections," or LINC. Among events planned for the coming year are:

  • A middle school day, in which top middle school students visit the ISU campus.
  • A winter festival in December.
  • Stars Over ISU (ISU Theatre production of The Secret Garden).
  • A student comedy contest.
  • A student singing competition, "Cyclone Idol."
  • Several major community service projects.
  • Playground building in the Ames community.
  • A faculty and staff awards ceremony
  • A student leadership awards ceremony.
