    Task Force Votes to change Veishea's name

    Thought this deserved a new thread.

    I agree with the task force, it is the only way to get rid of the party stigma that goes with Veishea. Sad that it had to come to this.

    Is this thread news only or a discussion thread?

    Changing the name will not change the party stigma of the event.

    The only way to change it is to end it. This will become a farce in seconds.

    No but I think it will do two things:
    1) It will somewhat change how the media covers the event.
    2) It will open the door to making further changes without having to deal with quite as much baggage.

    I don't think anyone thinks this will be the last, or even the biggest change that the committee votes to implement. If anything, I think its a promising sign that they're moving away from eliminating it entirely.

    Effectively shutting the campus off from alumni and community as soon as basketball season ends is not a solution either.

    Re: Task Force Votes to change Veishea's name

    Will the VEISHEA Task Force now have to select a new name for themselves?

    I mostly agree. I think the best way to kill the violence is to kill the event. Parades, cherry pies, and science fair projects be damned.

    I agree with you that it might not be the last big change, but what it does do is make it easier to eliminate the event because it no longer has that long historical name attached to it.

    I wish they would keep the name and the parade and anything beyond that do what is best for safety.

    Renaming will be a joke, and not because of media coverage, since that's never been the issue.
    Renaming counts on the students of the school to be morons that can't put the pieces together and connect this to VEISHEA. You keep the festival, with whatever name you choose, you keep the problem.

    Re: Task Force Votes to change Veishea's name

    The committee needs a PR rep. People are going to think this is the main/only recommendation of the committee which doesn't seem to be the case. Kinda makes them look like a laughingstock.

    Why does cancelling the event mean cutting off alumni and the community?

    Re: Task Force Votes to change Veishea's name

    Name it family fun weekend, the partiers will flock to Ames for that. This is the right first step. It takes away the party stigma and nostalgia, that was the biggest draw for those people. They want to be part of something they have heard stories about the epic party's. Family fun weekend doesn't make me want to drink a beer.
