The one thing that gets lost in the summertime, however, is preparation for the fall semester. While it’s important to recharge and let loose over the break, here’s some do’s and don’ts for your time between terms.

Utah is home to just over three-million people, with that number expected to double by 2050 with most of the growth occurring in the Wasatch Front, St. George and Tooele County. By this time, Utah will be a fundamentally different place. Utah has a future; it just needs to find it. To stay relevant in the 2050s, Utah needs to adapt and change many of its aspects including its infrastructure, education and technologies. With a shift of focus and outlook, Utah could become a larger part of the United States and bring more people and businesses to the state.

I don’t even know where to begin… 104 articles, 52,000 words on 142-typed pages over three years and it all comes down to this. My last editorial in The Eagle and for the first time in a long time I’m, struggling to find the words. I’m sure in the breadth of the English language there is the combination of words that will somehow sum up what this experience has meant to me, what this degree means for my family and just how much people I’ve come to know and love have meant to me.

Tori Amos said “You’ve got to know when to turn the page.” It took me a long time to come to terms with the decision to leave The Eagle staff. I was comfortable being the Editor in chief. Sure, it had it’s ups and downs, but the disrespect, criticism and stress was worth it.

Before coming to college, I told myself two things. First, I would not get in a relationship; and second, if I could bear to live in Price, Utah, for a few semesters, then it would be over quickly. Sometimes things do not go as planned, as I found myself in a relationship within the first month of school. However, I was right about one thing: after almost four semesters at Utah State University Eastern, time—and I know it is a cliché—has passed me by. In retrospect of my experiences thus far, there are three things that I would tell my pre-college self.

I’ve never been the type of person who likes receiving gifts, my whole adult life I have struggled with it. I have no idea why it bugs me but I hate the awkward squirming I do when I try to show the correct amount of gratitude in both physical gestures and words. So my wife, who knows me all to well knows exactly what kind of gifts to get me for my birthday and Christmas, normally books or tickets to they symphony or a good play.

Humanity has come a long way in the last 2000 years. We have seen the fall of the Roman Empire, the discovery of a new continent, the enlightenment, the scientific and the industrial revolutions, two world wars, reaching the moon and progress in equality. However, a lot more has happened including the building the pyramids, the inventions of agriculture and astrology, the development of tools and weapons and creation of nations.

Amid the rising storm of social media and online gaming, there is a threat to a precious art. One that hasn’t completely vanished, but could within the next few generations.
