    Well I hope Tom Hill and Leath are ******* happy. They did nothing to try and save it. The task force was set up to make this decision.

    Why not just have a new celebration and spread it out more and not have the name.....seems like a no brainer.


    Still comes off as a horrible knee jerk reaction.

    I love it how the tasks force says "we will try to make 2 to 3 smaller events"........... I know it stinks but man VEISHEA was getting real rowdy!

    Like I have said before, I am just fine with this move as long as we step up our Homecoming festivities.

    The excuse for having a poor homecoming was always that we had VEISHEA and we ended up doing a very average job at both celebrations.

    Let's make HC awesome now.

    So if a riot happens next year without the event... what is the solution?

    "Iowa State Univserity has some craziness as well. It is mostly known for their yearly festival called Veishea. It has basically grown to the point where students take a week off from class do nothing but drink all day long."

    I'm sure there were people on the deck of the Titanic screaming about why the crew wasn't trying to fix the hole in the hull.

    Sometimes things aren't able to be saved. Sometimes they're not worth being saved.

    This is an official university Twitter feed? I realize it's Twitter, but holy bad grammar, Batman.

    If people are outraged by this, you'll see protesting and petitioning...otherwise, it is what it is.


    Really sucks as a father of a kid who LOVES parades.

    tear gas, severe beatings, expulsions, and lots and lots of jail time.

    If the festival formerly known as VEISHEA ever has a chance of coming back in any form whatsoever in the future, it would be killed forever by another riot next year.

    I hope you are right, but Homecoming has become so self-contained in the Greek system as it is now that it would take a ton of work and more than a few years to bring non-Greeks into the fold.
