    What ever event comes next, please stop acting like idiots or it will also get canceled. It isn't difficult to have fun with out destroying things that don't belong to you or acting like a complete idiot. Sadly, I agree that VEISHEA had to be done forever.

    I'm ok with it being gone as long as we make homecoming a bigger deal now. The excuse for having a poor homecoming celebration was VEISHEA. So we did them both and they were both average IMO.

    Make homecoming cool. Bring bands in, have tournaments and campus events all week, etc.

    Sad it had to end this way. But that's life; actions have consequences.

    Then they will just cancel homecoming in a few years after riots get out of control

    I don't think that would be an issue. It seemed to me that people found a need to be stupid at VEISHEA just because that was expected. With homecoming there are no expectations.

    i do see your point though and it is valid.

    Not surprised, as a student in 04 I can't believe that didn't nix this event. Now that I have a daughter this sucks she won't get to experience the event but such is life I guess.

    It wasn't the original expectation...but it definitely became an excuse in recent years....and that disgusts me.

    Changing the name will definitely put a stop to alcohol consumption as well.

    Sure, but they didn't have much of a choice.

    Agreed. And I think "punish" May be the wrong term here. When they cancelled this year's, that was punishment. I think this is a pound of prevention rather than just an ounce.

    Ya probably, but until a cycle of students move on Veisha week will still be celebrated no matter if its official or not. Probably not on the same level but will still be carried out at least for a couple of years is my guess.

    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.
