    No matter what is done, students are still going to take a week out of April and party. It wont change for several years.

    I was getting ready to drag the couch outside and pop open a Zima after just looking at the thread name.

    That's fine. They don't need to kill the party. They need to kill the association with rioting.

    Okay, thats what I meant to say. I could care less if people get hammered the whole week, just be smart about it. Its crazy how some students think that you have to act like a complete ******* when you party, either during VEISHEA or not.

    Keep the name, give the police the right to shoot with extremely prejudice at even the idea of a riot. And indestructible stop signs made out of the same thing our goalposts are. Problem solved. Now where's the beer?

    Re: Task Force Votes to change Veishea's name

    Does the task force think the students are stupid or something? They must. If the only thing they do is a name change it is not going to fool anyone. Whatever they end up calling it won't change what it really is and the reputation of "that week". This whole name change idea, kind of reminds me of:

    Reading the article, it doesn't seem like this is the only change that will happen. Just the first that has been announced.
