    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 was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: Task Force Recommendation for VEISHEA

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


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    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.)
