The cafeteria in the Jennifer-Leavitt student center is the heart of campus. Students, faculty and staff go to the JLSC to hang out with their friends, eat great food or play some pool. The memories made within its walls cannot be forgotten or replaced and, with improvements, the memories will only get better.

Utah State University’s Dining Services has a new manager, Emily Bradley, 42, who accepted the position on Oct. 1, and besides being the coordinator of campus events, Bradley also takes care of everything food-related on campus. For those students that eat in the cafeteria, they already noticed changes made by Bradley, which includes opening the side door of the cafeteria, giving it a bigger and open look. Also, the students can check the menu for the entire week instead of finding out what would be served on the same day.

eing a local, I have had 20 years to explore and find the best places to visit in and around Carbon County. One of the best places to visit, and an ultimate must-see, is Helper’s Mining and Railroad Museum, located on Helper Main Street, in Helper, Utah. The three-story building commemorates the interesting history of Helper, Utah. Jason Huntzinger, USU Eastern’s’ photography professor, is the director. He strives to use the museum’s photographic archives to tell the stories of this area’s history.
