Not to be rude, but did this article have anything to do with SUU? Cedar City
only has a university because former Gov. Leavitt is from Cedar and he appointed
a bunch of Iron County buddies to be on the Utah State Board of Regents (the
governing body over Utah Colleges and Universities). Cedar had an easy road,
because of him, to change over from Southern Utah State College to SUU. Dixie
State College of Utah is already as big as SUU and in an area with more shopping
and things for students to do. I had a really good friend that went to both
Dixie State and SUU and he said that he liked Dixie better and that the teachers
were more approachable at Dixie. Just my 2 cents...
Southern Utah is a great place, and Kudos to dixie for trying to better it. SUU
is also growing and is a fine academic institution.
if St George is going to be the major city in the region, it makes long-term
economic sense to have the legal workforce from the surrounding area well
correction... slip of the fingers. "mormonic" was meant to be "moronic"...
which then in turn makes me a moron too, but for other reasons! =)
Whats a mormonic statement?
@RE:Jane 8:12am I was a student at USU when the State increased the amount
of time to get in-state tuition. The following year, USU's out-of state students
dropped by 85% and the next year the numbers kept going down. So in response to
the loss, USU had to raise the tuition 23% to cover the lost monies, which BTW
the state legislature said they passed the law so the state could increase
revenues to avoid huge increased tuition rates. It didn't work and we (the USU
students) had to cover the losses. I think this legislation is just more
red tape. They should have just repealed the original law the extended the
What a mormonic statement about USU being a "real" school (inferring that Dixie
State isn't)! Logan and Aggie fans always complain about how the U. and BYU
treat them and then some USU person looks down on Dixie State?! Newsflash... the
south end of the St. George City limits is only less than a mile north of the
Utah/Arizona line. It would only make sense that they allow those four
neighboring counties to attend Dixie State. You will eat your words someday...
St. George is already bigger than Logan and the college is projected to be
larger than USU someday! Dixie State will be a UNIVERSITY in the near future!
With nationally ranked programs, e.g., nursing, dental hygiene, etc., DIXIE
STATE is only going to get better! Let's see... live in Logan in the cold
polluted inversions going to school, or go to St. George and enjoy sunshine and
blue skies?! You decide! There's Zion National Park nearby (rated the most
visited national park this year in the country), skiing at Brian Head, Lake
Powell, Snow Canyon State Park, Sand Hollow Reservoir, Pine Valley... yeah, you
get the point!
How's that furlough gimmick going for a real school?
Because USU is a real school. It doesn't need gimmicks to increase enrollment.
Why can't the same thing be done for those living in Oneida County and Franklin
County in Idaho who would like to attend Utah State in Logan??
Wait a minute. Doesn't this law wipe out the arguments against undocumented
Utah high school students getting in-state tuition? Is it the color
of their skin?
