A task force submitted recommendations on the future of an annual celebration at Iowa State University that was marred by violence earlier this year.
The school confirmed that the task force has submitted its report on the future of Veishea to President Steven Leath. He will make a final decision on the matter by early August.
The group was created shortly after a late-night crowd disturbance in early April. People are accused of overturning cars and toppling light poles. One student was injured.
The disturbance led to Veishea's suspension this school year. The group has been meeting since then to figure out how the celebration should be carried out in the future.
The celebration features a parade and open-house demonstrations of the university facilities and departments. Campus organizations exhibit products, technologies, and hold fund raisers for various charity groups.
The name of the festival is an acronym for the colleges of the university when the festival was founded.
