Letter to the editor

Dear Editor,
I am writing this letter in response to an article that I read in the Feb. 12, 2004 issue of the Eagle. The article is titled “America; the mean kid on the playground of the world.” In this article the author made several false and irrational statements that have no place in a publication from an institution of higher thinking. And though we are taught knowledge here, there is a severe lack of wisdom.

Scholarships available for aspiring teachers

The state of Utah and State Board of Regents have created the Terrel H. Bell Teaching Incentive Loan Program (TIL) to help assist anyone interested in becoming a teacher.   The TIL program can provide financial aid to outstanding students who will follow a degree in education.

“Crimes of the Heart” opens tonight

Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Beth Henley’s “Crimes of the Heart” opens February 26 in the College of Eastern Utah’s Geary Theatre and continues through March 2 with Sunday’s being dark.
Directed by Todd Olsen, the play is the story about two days in the lives of three sisters from Hazlehurst, Miss. They have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital.

Spring report shows enrollment down

A statistical comparison of spring semester enrollments, 2000-04, was released by CEU’s Office of Institutional Research.
Despite hopes for enrollment stabilization, the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) report of third week enrollment showed a decline in full-time enrollments (FTE) and total headcount for both the Price and San Juan campuses.
Traditionally, FTE numbers have held a significant emphasis in the college’s focus. However, the overall headcount, which includes non-traditional students, reveal the dramatic decrease in enrollments.

Students, faculty and staff run the “extra mile” to support higher education

More than 200 students from eight of Utah public colleges and universities rallied last Friday at the Utah State Capitol Building to push for a wage hike for professors and staff.
Friday’s gathering was the culmination of a weeklong relay by teams of student runners representing Utah colleges and universities – beginning at both the Idaho and Arizona state lines – jogging across the state to demonstrate their concern about stagnant wages at the Utah colleges and universities.

CEU men lose two, win two

Two weeks ago, the Eagles had a tough weekend when they traveled to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho to take on North Idaho College.   Going into the games, the Eagles were in sixth place in the conference at 8-8 while NIC was just one game ahead of the Eagles at 9-7.   With two wins, the Eagles could have put themselves back into the hunt for first place in the conference, but North Idaho needed the wins themselves to keep up with the competitive teams at the top of the conference.
