    Graduation Ceremony - Ever Heard Of This Tradition?

    The undergraduate ceremony will also feature the passing of the "Ram's Head" from 1983 senior class president Kevin Drury ('83 ag business) to 2008 senior class president Jesse Truax ('08 health and human perf). The Ram's Head is an architectural artifact salvaged from the Old Main fire of 1902 that is ceremonially passed every 25 years. It will eventually be housed and displayed in the new ISU Alumni Center.


    "We are first and foremost an educational institution that values integrity, honesty and treating others with fairness and respect".

    -ISU President Gregory Geoffroy; circa May 2003.

    Never ever heard of that... That's strange and cool all at the same time.

    I'm kinda of excited to see this happen. Nothing beats a good ol' fashioned Ram's head exchange.
