You will just have to come and find out to see A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.  Director Corey Ewan and Technical Director Brent Innes are optimistic about producing on this musical for its lightheartedness and the opportunity it gives them to get creative.   “Necessity often fosters creativity,” Innes stated when describing the process of the set.  Where the ideal price to spend on a musical set would be around $2,500 to $3,000, Innes has a budget of less than $800.

When a student, staff member, or faculty member walks into the Utah State University Eastern Distance Education office, they immediately will be welcomed with a smile. This office is as busy as it comes, however, it seems to run perfectly. The coordinator, and the person that runs distance education, is Sherry Arellano, the 2016 staff member of the year. As the distance education coordinator, Arellano and her staff are extremely busy. They direct 75 classes that are broadcast from USU Eastern and 90 classes that are broad casted to USU Eastern.
