    When I was attending ISU in the early 90s, it was always so darn cold and windy during VEISHEA. Hard to have a good parade when it is in the 40s or (at best) low 50s with 40 mph gusts. One year, it was so windy I thought the big balloons were going to be carried off to Chicago, and the people holding them along with them.

    That'd work great this year! VEISHEA after most of the students have left Ames!

    Did you guys used to go to school later in May then? I had a teacher that said they specifically changed the school year just so VIESHEA would be in April and the weather would be colder to calm it down.

    I guess I was lucky when I was at ISU - every year VEISHEA weekend coincided with the first warm weekend of the year.

    Won't happen. It was changed so it wouldn't be as nice and thus less rowdy.

    VEISHEA used to be the first weekend of May. So dead week would follow the next week, followed by finals. Yes VEISHEA got moved back in April because they hoped the cooler weather would lessen all the parties and people outside.

    School was once over a couple of weeks later, in the 20's of the month.

    Actually, as I recall, the school year was changed so that Christmas break (after all, we certainly can't celebrate Chridmas!) was shorter, finals/graduation were sooner (and people could work more), and VEISHEA being earier was just a happy/sad side effect.

    Re: VEISHEA needs to move back to May. Bring the National Guard in to prevent the ri

    I'm glad they shortened Christmas break. My freshman year I believe I was off from December 14th until January 15th which is ridiculously long. December 21st-January 7th would've been PLENTY long of a break. I'd rather be in school when its crappy in January than in May when its nice out.

    the people could always win if they just got together... if no one shows up, or very few show up for a couple years... i guarantee they change it back. April weather sucks... pretty much get 5 months of decent weather in Iowa.. May - Sept

    People are complaining too much, yes the weather sucked but how bad it was yesterday into today is unusual. The average high this time of the year is in the low 60's instead it was about 20 degrees cooler.

    There is snow and/or freezing rain at VEISHEA just about every other year nowadays.
