    Re: Task Force Recommendation for VEISHEA

    Wow, reading all of the past incidents, I'm surprised it took this long. All I really remebered were the 04 riots and the ones I was in college for (12-14)

    they are gonna have an unofficial VEISHEA week that benefits the type of students that helped with the riot, while hurting the people who actually helped with the on-campus events. It's stupid but the task force made the only decision it could.

    I like the making homecoming a bigger deal idea. Honestly, do a lot of people give a **** about homecoming weekend at ISU compared to most schools?

    I agree on the homecoming idea as well. And no, ISU doesn't embrace homecoming like a lot of schools.

    Ames/ISU/VEISHA Committee should take a look at how Madison has dealt with Halloween and Mifflin St. Block Party issues.

    I think the smaller events concept has good possibilities. Hopefully people can be responsible enough to make this work.

    This is really a shame, but probably the right decision.

    What does "smaller event" entail? A concert here and a parade there?

    Meh, maybe. 04 was much destructive and nothing happened in following years.

    I don't care what they call it, but can we still have a big concert with big name artists? Thanks.

    I doubt that the "unofficial" VEISHEA is going to be "worse" now that they cancelled it.

    I was in school the last time VEISHEA was cancelled and I can't even remember what we did that week, it was such a non-event. People weren't rioting in protest.

    No it won't. I thought the same thing in 2005 after the '04 riot canceled VEISHEA. Nothing happened (outside of the ordinary parties/bar hopping, ect.)
