Don't overload your sweet tooth on Valentine's Day. On Monday, Feb. 15, you can purchase a signature cherry pie for $2.

The apparel, events and hospitality management program will be selling more than 1,600 cherry pies as part of a fundraiser to benefit student scholarships and organizations. The pies will be sold in 23 MacKay Hall from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., or while supplies last. T-shirts sporting a "reestablished 2015" message also will be available for $15.

The pie sale is just one of the former Veishea student-run activities being resurrected as part of recommendations made by a joint committee of faculty and students. Other possibilities include:

  • Incorporating arts events, displays and exhibits as part of Student Government's Cyclone Market in April
  • Organizing a parade, college showcase and/or community service event during the fall semester
