AMES, Iowa- Iowa State University welcomed the new class of incoming freshmen with an event called Destination Iowa State.  Some 600 staffers turned out to throw an outdoor welcoming party in the Iowa State Center complex next to Hilton Coliseum. The event featured a loud cheering welcome by rows of students clad in bright colors giving high fives to each new student. The event also had some games, and food.

 “A little nervous leaving the parents and everything for the first time,” said Shane Kalb, of Eagan, MN.  “Coming to this, you meet so many new people, so it’s going to be a good time, it’ll be fun, so many nice people here.”
