AMES, Iowa — Thursday night is the last meeting of the VEISHEA task force.

Members are finding ways to change the Iowa State student-run celebration, to avoid violent situations.

In April, the 7-day celebration was canceled after two days when a crowd flipped cars and knocked down light poles in the Campustown area of Ames.

After the incident, Iowa State president Steven Leath assembled a task force to make recommendations on the future of the event.

So far, the task force has decided to recommend keeping the celebration but doing away with the VIESHEA name.

Members will draft a final report Thursday night.

Those recommendations are due to President Leath by June 30th. He will make the final decision on the future of a student-led celebration at the university. There’s no timetable set as to when he will announce his decision.
