High School Tours

This last week has by far been the most eventful week for Emily and I. Between the two of us, we've been to five high schools. On Monday I went to Delta and Millard. On Wednesday Emily went to Richfield. On Thursday I talked to seniors from Gunnison and Manti, and tomorrow Emily is scheduled to go to North Sanpete. The interest in the SnowUSU partnership is growing and people are starting to ask a lot of questions! It's really exciting to be a part of this! :)

On another note, I am posting on this blog every week, but I'm not receiving any feedback. I really don't even know if anyone cares about what I have to say about our progress here in Ephraim. I appreciated Kristen's comment on last week's post, but more comments would be appreciated. I don't even know if I'm doing this blog right, so please...tell me what I need to change or improve on! Thanks!

Staying Busy

Emily and I are still staying busy! We are setting up our table two days this week--on Thursday and Friday. There are a lot of people asking us what we are all about, and it's fun to watch the program grow! In our meeting yesterday we talked about possible activities we can do to let people know that we're here. If anyone has any suggestions for us they would be greatly appreciated! :) Have a great rest of the week!

Fall Break

Well, the parade last Saturday was awesome! We had some of the ambassadors from the Logan campus join us, so that was a lot of fun. :) We threw a bunch of cool stuff, including t-shirts, wrist bands, chapstick, window clings, pens and pencils, and water bottles.

As far as this week goes, on Monday we had a bunch of high school FFA members visit our campus, where Jason and Jacob were there to talk to them. However, we don't have any major plans this week because fall break started and a vast majority of the students have gone home. I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! :) Smile!

Homecoming Week!

This week sure is busy for us! It is homecoming week here at Snow College, and Emily and I are doing our best to be involved in as many of the activities as possible. Today we hung out under the bell tower for a couple of hours talking to students about Utah State, and handing out coupons for Aggie Ice Cream. Our main purpose is to make people aware of Jason, who is our USU advisor here on campus. He was the man in charge of the ice cream today, so when the students redeemed their coupons they were able to meet him and ask any questions they might have. We are planning on doing the same thing tomorrow so hopefully we see a bunch of new faces! :) On Saturday we will be decorating a truck for the homecoming parade. We have big plans to throw a bunch of fun things out to the crowd. We'll be wrapping USU flyers in t-shirts and throwing them. We also have stress balls, pens, candy, and hopefully some amazing Aggie chap stick. After the parade we'll be going to the football game to cheer on the team and throw more t-shirts. It ought to be a great week! We're way excited about all the upcoming events!
