    Hey Chris B— The joke that USU is in Ogden was clever the first 10,000 times, but now it’s just lame. As far as the sexual harassment at the University, I suppose the right thing to do would be to have the “police” forward their investigative materials to the Honor Code Office, so the victim of the abuse could be punished.

    A final thought on the Ogden joke: Provo (home of the big seminary).

    Reporting of sexual discrimination is handled by the office of 'Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity'?

    Perhaps that's the problem.

    usu continues to be an embarrassment to the state. Scandal after scandal, crime after crime. Get your act together aggies. Oh, and change your name to Ogden community college while you are at it.
