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.

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.

Underrepresentation in Hollywood is not a new thing among minority communities in the USA. In 2015, more minorities appeared in the top movies of the year but according to the “Huffington Post”, only a quarter off all speaking role went to people of color. A few years ago, the hashtag “#Oscars so white” was trending because the few people of color in Hollywood were looked over for nominations for their white peers. Hollywood was called out for not understanding why it is important to see people who look like you on TV or a large part of your entertainment experience.

Do college students have a voice? In a time of technological advances and social media, people are more outspoken and heard than in any other time in history. With the click of a button, one can send their opinion to millions of people. People can find what they are interested in with the click of a button. Never in history have people been able to directly connect with celebrities or politicians. The use of social media allows everybody to have the ability to share their opinion.

Read traditional news by: Scott Froehlich In the age of the Internet and the mass media being distributed there within, the need for traditional news has been called into question lately. Many believe that newspapers and magazines are becoming obsolete, as social networking and alternative sources draw new readers in every day. While it is true that these innovative outlets provide an open forum for such news sharing, many factors come into play when considering this “brave new world” of journalism and reporting as a viable alternative.

As a student at Utah State University Eastern for nearly two years, I have been asked a few times what things residents of Price do in their free time, or as hobbies. More than once, I found myself without a precise answer since I myself haven’t found what the region has to offer at its best until a few months ago. And the answer is super simple: the region itself.
