    If it was my choice, I'd say just get rid of all the events after 5 or 6 pm. That still leaves most of the events for families and alums.

    But it was not caused or created by VEISHEA. It was the product of something entirely different. Chanting VEISHEA does not make it a VEISHEA event.

    Then losing the whole event this year should help clarify to them that that's not what it's about. Maybe they'll miss the other events, have a Grinch moment of clarity, and realize that VEISHEA means a little bit more than drunken craziness. But that lesson doesn't get learned nearly as well if the daytime events go on as scheduled.

    The riots in Ames only occur at VEISHEA time. It's known as the biggest time to party and possibly go beyond that.
    In the minds of people taking part, the rioting is exactly what the event is all about.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Agree with this 100%, but for the most part, there is a large disconnect from student events at VEISHEA, and alumni/adult/children events. For example, 90% of the people who would of attended the parade would not be attending the concerts, and are typically in bed by the time most of the partying starts.

    I said this in another thread, but I think you make the same point by shutting VEISHEA down at 5PM for the rest of the week as opposed to shutting it down completely.

    I think you're under a giant delusion as to what VEISHEA actually is. Yes, there is a parade. Yes it's an exhibition. Yes, it's fun for families. But the party is what brings people to town. The party is why all the money gets spent. The party is why the hotels are booked this weekend. The party IS the show.

    The people who use VEISHEA as an excuse for excessive drinking are generally not the ones that will be working on/attending the daytime events. They are also generally not the ones who will be affected by the cancellation.

    I doubt that. I grew up in Dubuque, and VEISHEA was always the one weekend where all my friends from high school would come visit. Had this same event happened when I was in college, most of them would still have come. As some have said, VEISHEA was just the excuse to drink. IMO, those who planned to comes to Ames this weekend to party are still going to come to Ames to party.

    Re: *****LEATH VEISHEA PRESSER LIVE STREAM*****

    The getting rid of events after 5/6 has some positives to it. But the kids that are out effing everything up couldn't care less about those events and probably any of the actual VEISHEA events.

    So in theory, it sounds great, but that doesn't keep the drunken idiots away. Maybe after a little hiatus, you bring back VEISHEA as a daytime thing or something and slowly introduce it as the celebration of ISU, so it won't have the nighttime stuff associated with it as much.

    Ah, hell this just plain sucks. Sucks for the students there, the Ames community, and us alumni. Just hope the right people are held responsible for this, no deaths/riots the rest of the week and hope things can be back to normal next April...

    No, I believe you are under a giant delusion as to what VEISHEA actually is...to the people who are actually putting VEISHEA on. Drunken carousing may be VEISHEA to many on here, but to many others, that isn't at all what it is. Why should those of us who believe in what it is meant to be have to accept the definition of the partiers? Why can't the drunks find another week to party?

    You are correct about what VEISHEA actually is... but that doesnt mean 18-21 year old DMACC, Kirkwood, and other kids agree with what VEISHEA means to you and I. Most couldn't tell you the first thing about it, to them VEISHEA is spelled PARTY

    I believe it's actually "VEISHA" to them.
