Little and Eagles come up big

The Lady Eagles stunned the College of Southern Idaho in their first meeting in the BDAC and then spanked Northwestern Colorado Community College two nights in a row. Are they ready for nationally ranked number-22 Salt Lake City Community College this weekend?
Jan. 26 was a big night for Stacie Little and the rest of the women’s basketball team. It was big for the team because they handed number 15 in the nation, College of Southern Idaho their biggest loss of the season 70-50 in the BDAC.

CEU players try to keep spirit alive in midst of CSI loss

The College of Eastern Utah’s men’s basketball team put on quite a show on the last weekend of January. The Eagles hosted the College of Southern Idaho and unfortunately gave them a little too warm of a welcome. In the first half of the game on Jan. 26, CSI outscored the Eagles by 17.
The game became a battle in the second half. CEU controlled the game and played their best half of basketball to that point in the season. Scoring 65 points in the second half showed to the fans, as well as the players, that the Eagles have the potential to do great things with the team they have.

Legal Marijuana alternative available in some health food stores

Methamphetamine. Cocaine. LSD.
We’ve all heard how dangerous, even deadly, these drugs can be. But have you heard of salvia divinorum? It’s an herb, but some call it the world’s most potent natural hallucinogen.
The legal status of Salvia divinorum varies from country to country. It was not until the 1990s that this plant’s properties became widely known through the experiment and report of ethnobotanist and salvia advocate Daniel Siebert.

Singer Nadine Zahr captivates CEU students

If there is one thing Ben Bailey is not afraid to do, it’s belting out his songs in front of a crowd. Bailey got the crowd ready for Nadine Zahr in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center Jan. 29.
As soon as Zahr began the first song, everyone listened. Well … everyone listened in their own way. It didn’t stop them from texting, talking on the phone, or with the person next to them, but somehow they can do these things and still listen. Each song received a rousing applause that was well deserved.

NetLibrary electronic books available 24/7 for students

Staff in the College of Eastern Utah’s Library would like to take this time to remind students, faculty and staff that the library subscribes to over 5,000 electronic full-text academic books. This means that it is possible to access a book 24/7. The electronic book provider for CEU is NetLibrary. The link to NetLibrary can be found on the library homepage at The link is located to the right of the eagle image on the CEU Library homepage.

The history of the tattoo

Hate them or love them, tattoos have developed into a distinct part of our culture making it hard for those who oppose them to ignore their significance.   Whether it is an act of spontaneous rebellion or personal self expression, tattoos are worldwide art forms which are forcibly becoming more and more accepted.      
Although many people oppose the idea of tattoos; millions of people walk the streets allowing their history, character, thoughts and beliefs to be shared with the world by using this form of self expression.      

Seven Keys to Baldpate

After spending weeks telling jokes with nobody present to laugh at in the Geary Theatre, the cast of “Seven Keys to Baldpate” open tonight, Feb. 8, and runs through the 10, black Sunday and on the 12-13. The play starts at 7:30 p.m. with student’s admission $2.
Written by George M. Cohan, “The Seven Keys to Baldpate” is a play that is out of the norm for director Cory Ewan who is known more for his melodramatic epics than for being a comedian type of guy, though he is a comedian himself.

Hales announces safer crosswalks

My fellow Eagles, welcome back to CEU for spring semester. This past semester has been great and I want to let you know of some of the things your student leaders have been working on. At the beginning of fall semester, there were complaints concerning pedestrian safety on the crosswalks surrounding campus. This issue was presented by Benjamin Waldon, the ASCEU public relations chair, to the Price City Council. After meeting with the city council, a committee was formed by Mayor Joe Piccolo to see what solutions could be done.

Mary Nickles speaks at JLSC for health

KUTV Channel 2’s morning anchor, Mary Nickles, said Americans take better care of their cars than their health at the National Wear Red Day celebration hosted on the College of Eastern Utah campus Feb. 2.
Nickles was in Price to make people aware that heart disease will kill more women than all cancers combined.

“Open” wireless access points denied

Students who use one of the four “open” wireless access points on campus without paying the monthly $10 fee will no longer have this privilege.
According to Eric Mantz, chief information officer, who sent an all-campus e-mail on Feb. 5, explained the decision to only provide “wireless access” to faculty, staff and students. The college will no longer provide “free” Open Internet Access Points.

Caring Award

The Caring Award is presented to a College of Eastern Utah student in honor of Val J. Halamandaris, who grew up in Price, attended the College of Eastern Utah (then Carbon College), and continues his education and professional career in Washington, D.C. At both Carbon College and Carbon High School, Halamandaris was active in student activities: a representative to Boys State and Boys Nation, local and state winner of the Elks Leadership Contest, student body president, and honor student in Phi Theta Kappa, just to name a few.

Endless opportunities

Walking down the corridor, nonchalantly, thinking of almost nothing at all. Humming a tune to himself, letting his mind wander, mentally going over a few things that need to be done today. Thinking it to be the beginnings of a day such as any other, he goes about his business while just around the corner, waiting to blast him in the face with a dose of fate was … well, fate.

ASCEU’s recap of weekly meeting

The ASCEU council convened their weekly meeting on Jan. 30, discussing various issues facing the campus from enrollment to bettering the classes at CEU.
