Utah State University Eastern will discontinue its preschool program at the end of the current semester, mainly due to costs and student demand. The program was originally established as a laboratory for instructing college students to be workers in child care. Despite a concerted effort by USU Eastern to promote its associate of applied science in child development degree, only one student actually completed the necessary requirements for the degree in the last 10 years, said Peter Iyere, USU Eastern vice chancellor for student success.

Dear Bridgette, Science is hard, no doubt about it. It is easy to get caught up in the idea of something rather than in the reality of it. However, just because something is hard doesn’t mean you cannot do it; the harder things often end up being the most worthwhile. The concepts of science are fascinating and relatively easy to memorize while the actual work behind those concepts disenchants many who begin to study them. Pushing through the frustration of mastering the little processes that make a field understandable may be one of the most difficult things you have to do.

I am Kaylee Jo Denver and was born and raised in Roosevelt, Utah. I am the oldest child of three, and the only girl besides my mom. I love to read, play sports (especially soccer and volleyball) and to watch movies. I have two mottos I live by: “Live without regrets” and a quote from Dr. Seuss, “Unless someone like you cares a whole lot. Nothing is going to get better, it’s not.” This quote is the reason why I held so many leadership positions.

My name is Jared Jones. I was born in Kansas and lived in South Dakota, California and Utah after my dad retired. When I was 20, I went on a mission for The Church of Latter-day Saints. When I got back I decided to come to Price for school and have been a student at USU Eastern three years and have seen the good days and the not so good days of student life. I want to make the campus more student friendly.

Math is certainly not for everyone. It is a subject that only makes sense to some; especially when you add the alphabet and odd symbols. However, Utah State University Eastern’s newest math teacher, Sebrina Cropper, has loved math since she was a child. Even then, when asked what her favorite subject, was she always replied that it was math. Cropper was born and raised in Utah. She lived in American Fork until she finished high school. She attended college at USU in Logan where she got both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

Some people like big, loud parties. Others prefer scrolling through Tumblr. A few find joy in both. Some are a bit scared to make friends, despite their desire to be around people. It’s an interesting dynamic, to say the least. Wanting to be around people, but being too shy to make friends—such is the life of the shy extrovert. Or to put it into perspective, such is the life of yours truly; Katrina Ashlie Wood. I like being around people.
