Next on the Tee

“‘Forward, the light brigade!’ Was there a man dismay’d? Not tho’ the soldier knew someone had blunder’d: Their’s not to make reply, their’s no to reason why, their’s but to do and die: into the valley of death rode six hundred.”

From Turkey to Canada and now USU Eastern

Mufitcan Alp, better known simply as “Alp” is a forward for the USU Eastern men’s basketball team. Alp is originally from Turkey. He says life in Turkey is almost the same as life in the United States; friends, parents, basketball, and studies. One difference, though, is a good one, “the social life is so much better in Price,” he said. In 2008 Alp was recruited by Bodwell High School in Vancouver, Canada to play on their basketball team. He left Turkey, and moved in with a host family in Canada for two years to study and play basketball on scholarship.

One and done

Utah State University Eastern traveled to their Region 18 Volleyball tournament in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho on Nov. 3-5 where they were defeated by Snow College in the first round.
Co-head coach Chelsey Warburton commented, “We had only two days to practice, and then travel. We just didn’t play well.”
The Lady Eagles lost in three games to Snow College. “We couldn’t mesh well, Snow was playing good at the end of the year, and they pulled out the win,” said Warburton. The score were; 25-18, 25-20, 25-15.

Golden Eagles open season and SOAR

With their foot on the gas and don’t show signs of letting up any time soon the Utah State University Eastern men’s basketball team opened their season Nov. 4, 2011. They have refused to look in the rearview mirror leaving six teams in the dust and in the wake of tragedy, they have found ways to come out ahead in the end.

The Prettyman Suite welcomes USU visitors

Due to the length of the trip between Logan and Price, various visitors from the Logan Campus would often spend the night in Price so that they would have time enough to do what they came to accomplish before returning. Seeing how burdensome the motel fees were to the university, Dr. Alex Herzog, associate vice chancellor for student services, came up with the idea for a campus housing unit to service Utah State University visitors.

Right in the middle of campus is a white building with walls of cement. It is old and probably has been on campus since the 70’s. Do you know what building it is? That’s right, it is the USU-Eastern Library. For all of the new freshmen, it is just another building, but for the returning students, the library is practically new.

Student Services Restructured

It is no secret that student enrollment has fallen this year, 310 students less than last semester. Seeing this as a major problem, the college hired the enrollment management consultant firm Scannell & Kurz to analyze the enrollment organization and process. During this process they reviewed enrollment documents, held focus-group interviews, and made a recommendation of how to fix the problem.

Are visiting hours doing more good than bad?

First let me start by saying I hate visiting hours. I am an adult and if I want to hang out in my room with a group of friends of the opposite sex after midnight, I should be allowed to. I am considered an adult because I am over 18 and in college, but I am not adult enough to choose when it is an appropriate time for my friends to leave. I have a full- class schedule and I am an athlete; I think I am responsible, I maintain a 3.03 GPA while playing baseball. However, I am told that my friends of the opposite sex have to leave my room at 11:59 p.m. or I will be in trouble.

Getting married: from a guy’s prospective

I am getting married. Yep, to the love of my life. I originally thought once you propose the hard part is over, but it’s just ready to begin. I’m not talking about the marriage and the struggles you will face. No, I’m talking about the wedding, the planning and all the emotions.
