BEST ADVENTURE IN EDUCATION
College of Eastern Utah
“Already with the lowest tuition in the state, in 2007-08, the College of Eastern Utah will be the only Utah college not to increase its second-tier (institutional) tuition or fees. You can take your first two years of classes (transferable to any Utah university) and use the extra money for classes in biking, mountaineering and river guiding. If adventure is your game, CEU’s outdoor recreation program (CE.CEU.edu) will teach you how to shoot a gun, tie a fly, climb a mountain, ride a horse, float the Green River, bike into the San Rafael, kayak Labyrinth Canyon or explore the ancient civilization at Range Creek. … You know, the lessons we really want in life.451 E. 400 North, Price, 435-613-5000, CEU.edu
