Eagles win three of four home games

Home court was kind to the College of Eastern Utah lady Eagles, who enjoyed a four-game home stand over the last two weeks, winning three of the four games. They faced off against the Colorado Northwestern Community College Spartans on the Feb. 3-4, then took on Dixie State last weekend.
CEU beat the conference cellar dwellers the first game 111-56 and the second game 96-59.
The Eagles nearly doubled up the doormat Spartan team on Friday night with big performances coming from sophomore Kaylynn Fager who had 12 points Friday night, and put up 13 points on Saturday.

All sports teams simply love a home game. That is where your Golden Eagles were cheered on to victory against the Colorado Northwestern Spartans, and a week later splitting with the Dixie Rebels.
Upon the Spartans assent to the BDAC on Feb. 3, they were quickly humbled by the CEU hoopsters, who thrashed them 97-86. Tyler Billings stood head and shoulders above the rest, zipping around the court. His shot was dead on as he lead the team with a whopping 26 points, as well as in rebounding, bringing 11 into his custody.

Daily explodes into physics position

It’s no wonder why Jared Daily came to teach at CEU after hearing of his first day on the job at a major physics company, Moxtek. Daily blew up a $5,000 power supply simply by plugging it in wrong. But even though $5,000 is quite a sum to most people, it’s apparently nothing to physicists and researchers because life went on as usual that day, and nothing was ever done to Daily. In fact one of his advisors always said to “Keep turning it up until it breaks, and then turn it down just a little bit.”

Through The Eagles Eye

The recently released Statement of Expectations by ASCEU leadership has caused a stir on campus. Some students, faculty, staff and administrators call the broad generalities in the statement an attack and others welcome it, declaring that it is what they have been saying all along.
We join in the latter group. However, we must clarify that we understand that the statements made by student leaders are generalities. As such, they are not necessarily indicative of individual employees and programs, but are broader in scope.

Inflammatory, highly insulting statements

Dear President Holt,
I am writing to you as a member of the Price community. I have some limited involvement with the college; involvement which I find to be very enjoyable and fulfilling. I know many students and faculty of the college and consider the college an integral and exciting part of the community. I have contributed to the college and I take some pride in the college and its successes.
