I’ve been browsing the Veishea tag here for a bit, just out of curiosity. The riots were really stupid, to say the least. A “ludicrous parcel of driveling galoots” is a more eloquent way of saying it. The fact that these people were drunk does not excuse them in the least.
But I want to make one thing perfectly clear. I am not ashamed to be a student at Iowa State University. Those people on Welch last night do not represent me, and they certainly do not represent Iowa State. Their actions are disappointing and the rest of campus has to suffer because of them.
I will never. ever. be ashamed to be a Cyclone.
