Ladies drop two to SLCC, take two from SC

It was a dismal night for the Lady Eagles a couple weekends ago when they stepped on the floor in the BDAC and ran into a talented and committed-to-win Salt Lake City Community College Bruin’s team.
The Bruins, who are on top of the Scenic West Athletic Conference slapped the Eagles 79-40 for their worst lost of the season. This week the Bruins moved up four places in the national rankings to number 18.

Eagles struggle on homefront, remain hopeful

The College of Eastern Utah Golden Eagles finished the previuos two weekends at home with a 1 and 3 record.
On the weekend of February 9, they battled the Salt Lake Community College Bruins, and came out with the same results as the teams previous meetings in Salt Lake City, losing the first game and winning the second.  Then on the weekend of February 16, the Eagles hosted Snow College and suffered two disappointing losses to the Badgers.

Clarifying the horror created by the truth of statistics

Losing sleep because of low enrollment harming the College of Eastern Utah has now come to an end, thanks to an e-mail in response to my article concerning “low student enrollment” in the Feb. 8 issue.
After writing the article, “class sizes diminish with low student enrollment,” my adviser received a pointed e-mail that was half directed toward me stating I had written a “misleading” article stating that, ” … the institution is doing an analysis of class sizes to determine which programs to terminate.” I feel the CEU community deserves a response.

Seize the day and overcome embarrassing situations

Recently I had the opportunity to see a part of the world that I had not been at all interested in finding out more about. It has to do with my recent change of occupation. So not only have I received a slight boost in pay, but encountered a particularly nasty entity known to the world at large as the graveyard shift. However with me being who I am, I would still rather do that than wake up early and go to work. I am a night person.
