Nathaniel Woodward: president As a third generation Eagle, I feel I can represent not just the interests of the student body but those of the community which both are equally dependent on the success of USU Eastern. If elected, I intend to work on strengthening the relationship between USU Eastern and USU Logan in an effort to provide students more opportunities for bachelors and graduate degrees without having to leave our amazing campus. Also I will work to increase the budget for our athletic department which is currently funded dead last in the SWAC.

Recently local news reported on USU Eastern’s Scenic West Athletic Conference rival Snow College of Ephraim, Utah’s, program which is broadcasting select lower-division courses to the Lighthouse Alternative High School in Price. Since the courses, English 1010 and Criminal Justice, are both offered at USU Eastern many in the community were curious as to why these were not available to the students through the local university.

With the addition of the CIB, faculty and staff and the revival of the debate team, 2015-2016 has been a developmental year for USU Eastern. It’s amazing to see so many new changes coming to campus, but while the CIB rose from the ground, students in Price couldn’t help but tilt their heads and ask “where is the money for this coming from?”

I’m sure people especially, those that don’t watch the NBA, are tired of hearing about Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors, but they’re 42-4. FOURTY-TWO AND FOUR and they have one-legit loss. They lost a game on a crazy-long-road trip, when Curry and Draymond Green were out. It’s just insane what they’re doing. They are doing this because of many reasons. The team plays well together, they have lineups that teams just can’t match up with. When they put Green at center, they’re basically un-guardable.

You would have to live under a rock if you did not know the Super Bowl is Sunday, one of the largest un-official American holidays. It’s also one of the most viewed events in the United States every year, making it a prime target for advertising. In fact, some people watch purely for the advertisements, which are arguably the best ones of the year. Advertisement slots at this years Super Bowl are projected to cost $5 million for a 30-second slot. That’s 10 times more than an ad aired in primetime TV.

There seem to be two-primary perceptions of Valentine’s Day. People who are all on board with it and those who refer to it as Singles Awareness Day. Conveniently, the view someone takes is usually related to their relationship status. I have come up with two recipes, one for those who want to show off to their Valentine, and one for those who, like me, will bury their sorrows in chocolate because they will be alone on this day.

So many questions revolve around what a history major offers. College students today pick majors that open doors to careers with steady jobs and appealing paychecks. That is true for history majors who find well-paying jobs in a wide variety of careers.

Evolution is a hard pill to swallow. We grow up in cultures that constantly shovel the idea that we are something special in the grand scheme of things. Many belong to faiths which suggest we are not at all linked to the natural world around us. This being said, I will once again go on record saying that I do not “believe” in evolution. Rather, I understand why evolution is correct given its tremendous amount of evidence backing it up.

Crush the notion that men can’t be raped, the idea that men aren’t victims or survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault or abuse. According to the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault, one in six boys will be abused before 18 in Utah. Unfortunately, that statistic is horribly wrong due to the atmosphere in which we raise boys: show no emotion, show no weakness and always be indestructible.
