It is said, “All good things must come to an end.” This is true for me as my time at Utah State University Eastern comes to an end. Like so many of the students at USU Eastern I came here for the “cheap” tuition, small campus and the great scholarship they offered me with no feeling for Price, Utah, whatsoever. However, over the past four years, well more like two because of a two-year break for an LDS mission, I have truly come to love and appreciate the town and the campus here in Price.

Most of you don’t know me and that is okay, I don’t know most of you. I am a girl who likes to hide in her room. I am an introvert with extroverted tendencies. I am comfortable talking to people once the conversation started, but don’t like to be the one to start a conversation. Once you get to know me, however, you usually can’t get me to shut up, especially about things I am passionate about.
