He is involved in a number of activities on campus including the men’s basketball team where he serves as captain of the team, and sports columnist for The Eagle newspaper.

In his free time Van Weezep enjoys watching sports, sleeping and being with his friends. 
 Van Weezep chose USU Eastern ,“because I wanted to continue playing basketball and my good friend Brad Barton was the coach down here, so I came to play for him. He passed away while I was on my LDS mission but felt like I owed it to him to come back to Price, Utah.”
His favorite things about USUE are sports, professors and small classes. Overall, he describes USUE as small, fun and personal.
