There are a few parts of a college that should always look professional and show prospective students and others how dignified that college or university really is. The College of Eastern Utah has a lot of different parts of it that look very dignified; unfortunately our web site is not one of them.

The week of Feb. 14-18 was Eagle Pride Week, sponsored by the Eastern Utah Ambassadors. The entire week was dedicated to school spirit, in hopes of promoting and bringing out real school pride. The Jennifer Leavitt Student Center was decorated, the rock was painted and each day was filled with various activities, including Valentines and poster making contests, a pride pageant, ending the week with men's and women's basketball games and the grand finale, a spirit stomp.

One of the most interesting revolutions to the Internet was also the most searched for word in 2004. According to Google the word blog is what people wanted to know about most, and there is a good reason. A blog is a personal diary that is posted on the Internet for all to see. The appeal of the blog to the common person is that you do not have to be a web designer to have a blog all to yourself, and blogs are fun, and in some cases useful.

To many people, reading "r u ther" is the same as reading a foreign language. Despite such confusion, this style of writing is slowly taking over modern culture. While using it can be convenient between friends, eventually lines must be drawn so that confused outsiders can also understand. When "chatspeak" bleeds into English reports and history papers, we need to start asking ourselves, just where does convenience end?

When the clock struck midnight on December 31, a new year began. Across the country people spoke, making resolutions that would hopefully change the upcoming year. People promised to lose weight, get a better job, spend more time with their family, or take that trip they always wanted to. Others swore they would become millionaires, be kinder to others, learn a new language, or somehow vastly improve themselves. When will people realize that not all resolutions have to be big or perfect?

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen to another issue of the Conservative Corner. I am your radical right winger. I have a question: what is freedom of religion? What were the Pilgrims thinking about when they came to this new world? Hopefully that they may have the right to pray however or to whomever they pleased? Why did the forefathers fight so hard and so diligently to free our nation from the oppressive-English monarchy that tried once again to control these people? Why would they build the foundation of our nation under the sovereignty of God?

Vacation is a time for seeing new places, spending time with loved ones and dealing with the horrors of travel. Instead of going by plane, try taking the train. When traveling, the main issue is usually cost. Booking tickets less than a month in advance can be a nightmare at times, and prices only go up as the travel day draws closer. If I wanted to fly round trip from Salt Lake City to Denver two weeks from today, I could expect to pay $350 on average. For the train, I can leave from the Helper station if I wish, and the cost drops to around $50.

Dear Editor, While perusing the last installment of The Eagle, I was somewhat surprised to read a letter to the editor. It harshly criticized the administration and faculty of CEU for its lack of diversity in its hiring practices.
