AMES, Iowa (AP) — A university task force wants Iowa State University to continue having a universitywide event but not call it "Veishea."

The group was formed by President Steven Leath 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 group voted Thursday night to drop the name but keep the event.

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 26 to discuss the event.

It has until June 30 to send recommendations to Leath.
