The crime rate at the College of Eastern Utah is low compared to other college campuses. Other schools like to say that their crime rate is low, but is not nearly as low as they like to think. The reason for this is that a lot of times they tell the city police to handle a crime so it doesn't go on their crime rate said ASCEU advisor Bill Osborn. The CEU crime timelines looked at are for the Price, Moab, Emery, and San Juan Campuses from January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2002.

Paul Michael Nieminen followed a girl to Price from Lansing, Mich. He came here after the girl told him that their love would last forever. Much to his surprise, a short time later, they parted ways and he focused his time on his first true love ... painting. He now paints with the passion that he was wasting on that girl. He acquired his talents from his mother who taught art classes in her basement when Nieminen was a small boy. His favorite medium is pencil; he feels that he has mastered the technique of drawing so he can let his audience better feel the emotion behind his art.
