An Iowa State University task force voted Thursday night to drop the name "Veishea," but keep the event.
The group was formed by President Steven Leath shortly after a late-night crowd disturbance in April that included the overturning of cars and toppling of light poles near the Ames campus. One student was injured.
The task force voted last week to discontinue the current setup of the annual celebration. The group will have open meetings next Thursday and on June 26th to further discuss plans. It has until June 30th to send recommendations to Leath.
