Students and friends,
I’m so happy that you’ve chosen to study at USU Eastern, where you’ll discover that your goals are the same as the College’s goals.
You are striving for a successful college education. The College is striving for advances in students’ skills, academic achievements, and graduation rates. You want to develop workforce skills that will provide you a fulfilling job with a good wage. The College wants to fulfill employers’ needs for a talented and hardworking workforce. Your aim is to make an important contribution to the future. The College’s aim is to prepare the people who create and sustain our region.
At USU Eastern, we give our very best effort to achieving our goals, but we can’t do it without you. In fact, you are the essential ingredient. The very best faculty, the most committed and creative staff, the greatest coaches and advisers, the most talented tutors and lab assistants — none of these College employees can achieve the College’s goals without great students. That’s where you come in. We simply can’t do it without you.
Isn’t it great to discover other people who want the same things we want! That’s how partnerships are formed. So let’s join together in our common quest! I devote myself to the things you want. And by working hard for the things you want, you’ll help the College with its goals. Many thanks for being that essential ingredient.
Sincerely, Joe Peterson
