Iowa State President announces events to replace VEISHEA

AMES (AP) -

Iowa State University is planning two events to replace what was the annual VEISHEA festival.
   University President Steven Leath said Monday that a February celebration will feature the sale of cherry pies as part of Valentine's Day activities. A celebration of the arts will be held in April.
  The plans for the next academic year include a community service project, a parade and college showcase and an event to welcome students back to campus for the start of spring semester.
   Leath ended the Veishea festival in August 2014, saying the alcohol-fueled party placed students at risk.
