One of the most critical factors in boosting enrollment in higher education is the numbers provided by the population of students who don’t fit the traditional description of a university student. These “non-trads” are defined by Utah State University as “a student who is at least 25 years of age or older and/or has a spouse, committed partner and/or dependents” which can, at times, make up a hefty portion of total full-time students enrolled at USU Eastern.

Utah is home to just over three-million people, with that number expected to double by 2050 with most of the growth occurring in the Wasatch Front, St. George and Tooele County. By this time, Utah will be a fundamentally different place. Utah has a future; it just needs to find it. To stay relevant in the 2050s, Utah needs to adapt and change many of its aspects including its infrastructure, education and technologies. With a shift of focus and outlook, Utah could become a larger part of the United States and bring more people and businesses to the state.
