USU Eastern’s debate team (College of Eastern Utah) was powerhouse on the regional and national circuit for decades. Under the direction of one of the most renowned debate coaches in the nation for 32 years, Neil Warren, CEU accumulated regional and national recognition.
Word on the street is that there are two new teams at USU Eastern. Coach Ammon Bennet says, “They are doing well. They work hard and can’t easily be defeated, but they still need to work. They have learned a lot. They are not stars, but they are committed.”
For their first game of the season, the men’s soccer team put up a good fight up against Adams State University; taking the win 4-0. On their second game they weren’t as lucky but they still did a great job ending the game 0-0.
USU Eastern presents “America in the ‘30s: Prints from the Federal Art Project,” which is part of Utah Arts & Museums’ Traveling Exhibition Program, on display from Sept. 2 through Oct. 2 at Gallery East located in the Old SAC Building.
The prints selected for this exhibit are by artists associated with the California division of the Works Progress Administration. WPA was created in 1935 to provide employment, encouragement, and, in part, support for American artists during the Great Depression.
USU Eastern residential life students in 2013-14 requested that there be a change to some of the policies. Returning this year, it is apparent that some of the popular demand was addressed over the summer. Most of the residents requested that the visitation hours be changed from midnight to a later time. This policy along with several others, has been changed said Jeff Spears, director of housing.
