Life at USU Eastern is pretty average most days. When a sporting team wins, the decimal level goes up for a few minutes and then everything on campus returns to normal, even in the BDAC. Except this year. A university should be a place where differing ideas are celebrated not censored, even with the increased hostility during this election cycle. This is why several at USU Eastern found the removal of the television from the BDAC inappropriate.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you are the resident expert, the only person who can make the decision and provide solutions to any number of problems? I recently found myself in just such a predicament where I came to the gut-wrenching realization that I was overwhelmingly unqualified for the task at hand, parenthood. I have three children, that’s not much of an accomplishment in itself, they’re not terribly difficult to make, however, getting them from birth to adulthood physically intact and emotionally stable is another issue entirely.

USUE is a great campus in Carbon County. Many students enjoy the campus and the management of it. Some of us heard the university needs to increase the number of the students enrolled here. Here in Price city, we have a two a three high School that provide a great number of the students to his university. A few strategies could be implemented to attract even more students each semester.

It was a fateful day in January 2009, when Barrack Obama walked on the stage to be inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States. Now eight years later, Obama’s legacy is coming to a close. During his presidency, President Obama has had to fight wars, rebuild an economy, deal with the most unproductive Congress in history, push equality, enact reforms and unite the nation. While he is a controversial figure in today’s politics, history will eventually remember Obama as one of the greatest presidents of all time.

The Eagle, USU Eastern and the surrounding community mourns the passing of our dear writer, colleague, student and buddy Daniel “Danny” Pike who was killed in a automobile accident on US-6 on Sunday, Oct. 2016. Danny has been a main-stay at The Eagle for several years, who demonstrated an over-qualified skill as a news writer and overall go-getter. Danny was always there to pick up the slack and deliver when the staff needed him most, often putting his friend’s needs above his own.

The world is full of behaviors and views that simply baffle me. I try my hardest to wrap my head around them, regardless of how foreign or primitive they seem to me, but every now and then something comes up that simply perplexes me and I’m left with my mouth agape and scratching my head. While there are a good many customs I don’t understand, I none-the-less appreciate them for their staying power and tradition, however, something that has popped up, rather emphatically is a disconcerting movement against “political correctness.”

Discrimination at Utah State University Eastern is not an issue. That doesn’t mean discrimination is not a problem. The small comments and conversations that involve discriminatory rhetoric has been swept under the rug and ignored. Conversations involving ableist, misogynistic, homophobic and racist content is not rare in Price, Utah.

I doubt anyone who is reading this knows who I am, but I was a student at USU-Eastern, back when it was the College of Eastern Utah. It’s been nine years since I was a student there, but not a day goes by that I’m not thankful for the time I spent at CEU (I know, I know, it’s not CEU anymore. But, it’ll always be CEU to me.) Today, I accepted a job as a content producer for a radio station. As I think back on my work history, I can trace every bit of success I have had to the time I spent as a student in Price, Utah.

Like many of the European nations, the United States is also asking itself the Syrian question. Should we allow these refugees into our country? Conservatives like presidential nominee Donald Trump believe allowing these refugees into our country spill disaster and it opens the doors for terrorism to spread with unprecedented speed. This fear persuaded at least 31 governors to ban the “resettlement” of Syrian refuges within their states despite not having legal authority to do so and many other governors to be openly against and hostile to the idea of refugees.
