Truth in Tuition Hearing

A truth in tuition hearing addressing possible budget scenarios was held March 3.
State law requires colleges and universities to hold “Truth in Tuition” hearings if they will be proposing increases in second tier tuition.
Because the state legislature has already reduced CEU’s base budget by 17 percent for the 2010-2011 academic year, CEU proposes to raise 2nd tier tuition between six and eight percent.

Letter to the editor from CEUSA

Dear Editor:
An article appeared in the last edition of The Eagle pointing out that CEUSA has had a challenging semester so far. It is bitter-sweet for us as the Student Government of Eastern Utah’s Student Association to hear this negative feedback; bitter because it is a hard realization that we have let the student body down. It is also sweet, however, because we now know that the student body is taking notice of what we do and we know that we can turn it around for the last half of Spring semester.

The times that try are a natural cycle

Of late it seems that things are in a flux: the longtime democratic seat of Ted Kennedy was taken by R-Scott Brown; the first ever known photograph of Phineas Gage (the textbook case of brain trauma personality disorders) has been found; and global warming seems to now be debated as global cooling.
Where on Earth has the dependable world gone to, the world that I have come to experience with affection and a touch of annoyance? Has my unshakable faith in the predictability of human nature actually been rocked?

SWAC Day One

In the opening game of the Scenic West Athletic Conference tournament, the North Idaho College lady Cardinals faced off against the Colorado Northwestern Community College Spartans. NIC drew first blood with a shot from Katie Sanders. The Cardinals jumped out to an early 9-0 lead.

Assistant basketball coach plans to stay in profession for life

“We all have greatness in us; we just need to find it” There are monumental people who inspire, lead by example, motivate, and dedicate their lives into the service of others. College of Eastern Utah’s Assistant Coach Brad Barton is one of those people. As the clock ran down its final minutes at Saturday night’s championship game between the CEU Eagles and Northern Idaho Cardinals, Barton’s face glowed with pride. He sat in anticipation, his fist clenched in the air in celebration.

SWAC Day Two

The North Idaho College women took on the College of Southern Idaho women on the second day of the tourney. Scoring was back and forth early on in the game, with both teams trading baskets the first five minutes of the game.
At the first media timeout CSI led 12-9 over the Cardinals. At 13 minutes, CSI’s Maddy Plunkett extended the Eagle’s lead to three with a nice turn-around jumper. The Eagles showed flashes of brilliance, at times appearing to pick apart the NIC defense. But NIC refused to go away and continue to press CSI.

45 year-old drought ended

Last weekend was one that will not quickly be forgotten by members of the College of Eastern Utah men’s basketball team. On Friday they dismissed Salt Lake Community College Bruins, and secured a place in the finals of the Scenic West Athletic Conference tournament and then on Saturday the Eagles knocked off nationally ranked North Idaho College to secure the first conference title in 45 years. The week before the tournament EU closed out the regular season with a loss in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, against NIC, and a win against the College of Southern Idaho Eagles.

USU-CEU history in the making

The College of Eastern Utah is now officially part of the Utah State University system as a result of the passage of Senate Bill 69 by the Utah State Legislature March 4.
Pending the governor’s signature, the passage of the bill marks the first higher education merger between two long-standing institutions in the state’s history. CEU’s new name will be Utah State University-College of Eastern Utah.

CEU Library changes policy and upgrades systems

The CEU Library has recently added several new whiteboards to the group study rooms. With monetary assistance from Jane Johnson, director of international student Services, the library was able to purchase several whiteboards and markers for student use.
This is a great resource while working on group projects or for individual study. Study rooms and markers are available for checkout at the Circulation Counter at the front of the library.
A special thanks goes to Jane Johnson and all the international students for their generous gift to the CEU Library.
