GEAR UP Site Coordinator Kameron Murray came to Utah State University with 12 of our Uintah River High School students and some former students who attended other high schools after leaving Eagle View Elementary School.

A media release by USU’s Dana Rhoads said that “Ute Tribe students from Uintah, Union and Uintah River high schools to give them a better understanding of the college experience and see the future opportunities available to them. The students arrived in Logan Thursday, Sept. 13, and returned to the Uintah Basin the following day.”

The article goes on to say that the “students spent the rest of the day at USU’s rope course, developing leadership and team-building skills before returning to the Uintah Basin. ‘I’ve been here three different times and the experience has been way different. The ambassadors are the best. They are so excited and fun, and I can feel their love for Utah State University,’ Artemia Renwick from Union High School explained. ‘It makes me excited to earn a degree in the arts or sciences.’ ”

Campus visits are one of the many ways that USU STARS! GEAR UP encourages students to reach beyond their comfort zones, graduate from high school, and enroll in post-secondary education.
