Remember the comics we read as children? Do you recall how the superhero would catch the villain and always save the day? Did you read the one where your mommy kills animals? Probably not. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has published and distributed such a comic. Children across the country who were escorted by parents in fur, received a pamphlet entitled "Your Mommy Kills Animals!"

Due to the sheer number of controversial events that occurred, fall semester of 2003 was the best semester these writers ever had at the College of Eastern Utah. I am sure that this was quite apparent to students and faculty. Last semester was a field day for me as a journalism student, and fueled my passion for making people think twice before altering, deleting or downsizing any organization. These minute changes seem not to have affected administration, yet caused the students to become dissatisfied with their college.

If someone would have asked me five or ten years ago where I thought I would be today, I sure wouldn't have guessed that I'd be a college student living in Burtenshaw among hundreds of young students. As a single and non-traditional student, and having never been to college before, living in a dorm was never a consideration when I first started looking for an apartment in Price, Utah. However I must tell you that after living of campus for the first couple semesters, and at a distance from the college, it is now for me the only way to go, at least for now.

A consortium of big-name technology companies have banded together in an effort to improve information security. The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) has stated that its goals are preventing against software attack, ending identity theft and protecting computer owners from physical theft. While this new technology promises big things to consumers and companies both, it also lends itself to abuse by the very institutions meant to protect users. Depending on who you are, and how you use the computer, Trusted Computing (TC) will be more of a burden than a boon.

It's no secret that the College of Eastern Utah needs more students plus needs to retain its students each semester. It's also not a secret that fall 2003 semester's third week full time equivalent (FTE) enrollment was down 180 students from fall 2002 (a drop of 9.2 percent). It was one of three schools that saw enrollment decreases; Snow lost 109 students (4.1 percent) and Utah Valley State College lost 17 students (one percent). Six of the remaining Utah colleges saw enrollment growth.

So you have decided to go to college but aren't sure what you want to do for the rest of your life. That makes choosing classes and setting definite goals much harder. At CEU it is very common to find students who have no real purpose. This being the case it is much more difficult to stay focused and remain motivated. If you don't know where you are going, you will eventually look back on your life and regret the years that were wasted.

The holidays have been a time to reflect on what makes us good, to think upon those things that enable our society, and to do things that are genuinely charitable. When we have the opportunity to actually do those things, we can make the world a little better. Isn't that what the holidays are all about?

I want to comment on the appalling behavior exhibited by the dance department chair at the production of The Grinch on Monday, Dec. 1. Apparently someone took a picture during the first scene. At the end of the first scene, a woman came on stage, rudely yelled at the audience and demanded the person taking a photo to bring the camera to her. She refused to continue with the production until the person came forward with the camera.

This last semester as a traditional student opened my eyes to the flaws within the college. I have complained about dorm policies, cafeteria food and even suggested a campus boycott. These notions and ideas will continue to be the downfall of not only myself, but for the college experience of many students. I am tired of questioning why some administrators treat us like four year olds when we complain or think of us as whiny two year olds. The problems are not going to just magically disappear, yet be the reason why certain departments disappear.

I would like to take this privilege to express my love and appreciation to Almighty God for bringing me to this far of my schooling at CEU. I am so happy to get to know the wonderful people in this school. I would like to take this time to show my appreciation, my gratitude to the school, President Ryan Thomas and his wife Ann, the admission, staff, Dave Paur, Jane Johnson, Bill Osborn, Brad King, Steve Burge and all the professors in the college as well the as the campus police Phyl Johnson and James Prettyman and the ASCEU leadership.
