The College of Eastern Utah's Prehistoric Museum art gallery is hosting a fall semester exhibit created by instructor Pam Miller's museum exhibition class that explains the importance of understanding how the destruction and vandalism done at paleontology and archeology sites impact the study of ancient peoples. Protection of paleontology and archeology sites is covered under a 1906 act passed by congress called the Antiquities Act," Miller said. "It's not a new law. It's almost 100 years old and it has virtually not changed."

Two freshmen and a sophomore introduced a new way to occupy student's time that lasts longer than a cheap thrill of racing down Main Street in Price. A new chapter of Mythic Realms, a Live Action Role Playing (LARP) game, based out of Salt Lake City, is planned for the Eastern Utah area. LARP is similar to Dungeons and Dragons with the exception that people act everything out. This consists of dressing up in costume, applying makeup to match what type of character you will be playing, and live boffer combat.

Do you ever wish CEU had more school spirit? That concept is what Daniel Wood and the executive board are working on. They want to put the 8-ft CEU letters up on the hill for all of Carbon County residents to see. They started this project in April and hope to have it done by the middle of October 2004.

Nathan Zilles is a freshman from College Ward, Utah, located in Cache Valley. Zilles grew up in this community of 600 people on a dry farm, which is a farm that relies on an irrigation system and rain to grow crops. He graduated from Mountain Crest High School in 2001 and worked for one year before serving an LDS mission to Argentina-Codaba.

CEU is the home of many cultures from all over the world. One of the most interesting, however, comes from right here in Utah. There is a student who attends CEU and grew up in a polygamist group. For the sake of privacy she will be referred to as Carlie, but please keep in mind that this is not her real name.
