AMES, Iowa (AP) - Officials say the president of Iowa State University will announce his decision Thursday on the violence-marred Veishea festival.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1ofUF5U ) that President Steven Leath will make his announcement during a news conference scheduled for 10:30 a.m.

A task force formed by Leath submitted recommendations to him on July 11. The group was created shortly after a late-night crowd disturbance in early April. One student was injured. The rest of the festival’s events were canceled.
