USU Eastern has been “Framed.” In 1983, Mike Frame, the eldest of Michael and Donna Frame’s mixed family of eleven children. The first in the family to attend the College of Eastern Utah, now USU Eastern. Little did Mike know at the time, but there would be several more Frames attending his alma mater in the future.
Seven of Mr. and Mrs. Frame’s eleven children attended CEU. Four of the seven who attended CEU, married spouses who also went to CEU. Mr. and Mrs. Frame now have 36 grandchildren, the oldest being 25 and the youngest only two months. Out of the eight grandchildren attending college, five have or are attending college at USU Eastern. One can be sure that there are still plenty of Frames left to come through the doors of USU Eastern.
Shanna and Megan, graduates of Bountiful High School; Amanda, graduate of Carbon High School, and Madi, graduate of Spanish Fork High School; are four Frames currently attending USU Eastern. They each have their own reasons for attending Eastern. “I feel like I matter here. The people are able to focus more on my needs because there aren’t as many students compared to other schools” states Madi. and Megan came to USU Eastern to be around cousins and felt it would be a good place to make the transition from high school to college. Eastern has become the best school for each of them in its own way.
The Frames, are one of many families that have seen several of their family members choose USU Eastern as their college choice. The inexpensive tuition, small class sizes. Small town friendly environment are fundamental factors that keep these families coming through.
