Mitt Romney is running for U.S. Senate from Utah and his stance on immigration is counterproductive to his own goals. He goes against precedent by trying to make hard working people’s lives more difficult.

Campaigning for the 2018 midterm elections is in full swing, and for many Utahns, there are more Mitts being thrown around than during Major League Baseball’s Opening Day. As politicians and local leaders alike mull over potential candidates, we as citizens bear the burden of sifting through the options for the men or women who will represent us on a national level. And for many students at Utah State University Eastern, this will be their first opportunity to participate in one of America’s most treasured expressions of democracy.

Due to the fact that most colleges are liberal, the “Eagle Hour Gun Debate” in the sun Center was not what I was expecting. I was expecting to walk into a room containing mostly liberal activists preaching “guns kill people,” and “save our children not our guns.” However, I was delighted to see an array of people; men and women, conservative and liberal at this discussion.

A few months ago, Greg Dart- vice chancellor of student affairs & enrollment services took a group of students including myself to universities in Utah with the purpose of looking at student centers. It has been said by students, faculty and staff that the Jennifer Levett Student Center isn’t exactly a student center. When looking at other university’s student centers, we wanted to see what they did with the space they were given and if we can bring any of those concepts back to Eastern.

I am sad. Sad to see little to no improvement within the relationship between student leaders on Eastern’s campus. When I say “leaders on campus,” I do not just mean student government, resident advisors, SUN Center, ambassadors, student success leaders and student support services. I mean everyone in a position that leads a group of students on campus; club presidents, editors on the newspaper and athletic captains. All year, we as student leaders have been told to work with the other leaders on campus. With each reminder to be better, our communication has deteriorated.

Utah State University Eastern hosted the Leadership Summit for Leadership Day on March 16th in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center. Leadership Day recognizes future student leaders for USU Eastern by placing them in group and individual activities and interviews. This event also shows the candidates the perks and responsibilities of their desired position, such as a spot in student government (Eastern Utah Student Association), resident advising and etc.

In life, we need a stroke of luck or two to get us through, whether you believe it or not. I think it exists because I’ve had a few moments in my life where I could have been seriously injured or died if it were not for being “lucky.” Yes! I also had one or two unlucky moments and when I look back in retrospect, I appreciate both the lucky and unlucky times. If I choose one that I appreciated the most, it would be luck, not because having luck is almost always a good thing, but because the times that I did get lucky were life threatening instances that mysteriously got away from me.

When a student is elected to a leadership position, They put themselves into a higher status. They must maintain that status, whether on campus or social status. A social status can be referred to as “respect”. You can gain or lose respect easily. How to lose respect is being hypocritical. Say you do one thing and not do anything. Guarantee people something and not follow through. You are to be a leader that gains respect not consistently lose it.

Lack of social media and an excessive amount of fliers could be affecting student government’s small attendance at events. Advertising on campus is overwhelming, while off-campus students do not get any notice in advance, save for some social media. USUE’s online presence has little to no followers which fails to make up for the lack of off-campus promotion.

My parents are Christian business owners from Southeastern Idaho, so of course I grew up in an extremely conservative Republican household. Being politically aware highschooler, I both agreed and disagreed with my parents with my parents political views. Their views on business and small government made sense to me, but their views on abortion and gay marriage seemed ridiculous.
