Athlete Spotlight

A 5-foot-10 inch lady able to touch the rim, now that is what some people would call “hops.”
The College of Eastern Utah has a lady athlete that can do just that. Her name is Megan Hunsaker, or as her volleyball teammates call her, Gracie.
Hunsaker came all the way from Alaska to join CEU’s volleyball team, and she didn’t stop there. Because Hunsaker has been playing basketball since second grade, she decided to play that sport as well.

Destruction and vandalism exhibit

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.”

The President’s Own United States Marine Band

Each fall, nearly 100,000 people hear the music of “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band as the band tours the United States.

Those living in eastern Utah will be able to experience this tradition first-hand when the United States Marine Band performs in concert at College of Eastern Utah’s Bunnell-Dmitrich Athletic Center on Tuesday, October 19, at 7:30 p.m.
