it's been said before and I'm just going to say it again:
veishea is a poor excuse for people to get intoxicated every night of the week instead of only half of the nights of the week. some people like it for this very reason, others (myself included) think it is absolutely ridiculous.
veishea is however, a great excuse for skipping class to enjoy the nice weather on central campus.
free food, free entertainment, a parade, and cheap shows are also good things about veishea.
