The College of Eastern Utah Golden Eagles dropped three of their last four games to end the regular season.

The Cardinals had seven players score in double figures led by Shawn Henderson’s 19.    Henderson also had 10 rebounds to lead NIC, and NIC had 40 rebounds to CEU’s 28.    Although the Eagles took a large amount of free throws, connecting with 86 percent, the story of the night was that the Eagles just couldn’t knock down shots.

1st annual “Lucky Day” brings in California illusionist and band

For Mike Super, success seemed to be part of the plan since he was 6 years old.
“My magic influences as a child were Doug Henning and a newer magician at the time, David Copperfield, who was just starting out.

If UVSC can do it, what is stopping CEU?

Numerous studies have shown that the College of Eastern Utah is the most cost effective choice when it comes to obtaining a college education in Utah. It boggles my mind that, until looking for a college to attend did I even hear about CEU. Growing up in Utah one would think that all of the state schools should be on my list to attend.
Not so for this writer, not only did I not know where Price was, but also that CEU existed. How did this happen? It is not that opportunities to find out were lacking, every other state school bombarded me with fliers and invitations for campus visits.
