During the summer months, when few students attend CEU, the campus is occupied with students participating in its summer high school and college camps. For the last 30 years, CEU has hosted summer camps of all kinds to both high school and university-level students.

The CEU baseball team has a new baseball coach this year. Scott Madsen, 24, has taken over this position from his older brother, Eric Madsen.
Scott was the pitching coach for the Eagles the last four seasons and said that he is excited and anxious to get the season started as the new head coach. Scott also pitched for the CEU baseball team in the 97-98 season and then again in the 98-99 season.
Coach Madsen said that the team looked very strong this year as he had eight sophomores coming back from last season and 28 freshmen coming into the program.
