Sesquicentennial display

Remembering our 150th

A new exhibit in Beardshear Hall commemorates Iowa State's 150th birthday celebration in 2008. The exhibit, on the northwest wall of the first floor, includes memorabilia from ISU's Sesquicentennial Day at the Iowa Legislature, Congressional resolutions and the U.S. flag that flew over the nation's capitol on March 22, 2008. Iowa State got its start on March 22, 1858, when Gov. Ralph P. Lowe signed a bill creating the new college. The exhibit frame, designed and constructed by Randy Fiscus in facilities, planning and management, complements Beardshear's architecture. University marketing designed the exhibit.
