Utah State University Eastern is a public regional college within the Utah State University system. The USU Eastern main campus is located in Price, Utah, United States and a satellite location known as the Blanding Campus is located in Blanding, Utah. Founded as Carbon College in 1937, the college joined the University of Utah system in 1959 for 10 years and was renamed College of Eastern Utah . In 1969, the Utah System of Higher Education was created ending the relationship between the University of Utah and CEU. CEU entered the USU system on July 1, 2010 and is currently called Utah State University Eastern. With more than 60 degree programs, the college focuses on technical, vocational, and Associate Degree programs. The Gene Tobey Memorial Art Scholarship is one of three scholarships formed as a last request of Gene Tobey ; the other two scholarships being at Mason High School and at Western State Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado. USU Eastern competes as the Golden Eagles and is the only USU campus, apart from main campus, that has an athletics program.HistoryCarbon College was formed on February 20, 1937 by the State of Utah and classes began in October 1938 with approximately 100 students. The newly formed college faced financial difficulties in 1953 when a budget-cutting measure was proposed to dismantle the college and sell the property. The issue went to the ballot during the election of 1954 with 56,000 petition signatures and a subsequent 78% of the vote to reject such a measure.

  • This is a must-do if you’re traveling to, or through, Price. It’s only $6 at the time of this writing and they have great family discounts. I love that they exhibit a magnificent range of fossils! My ...  more »
  • The museum, a large ornate building with snarling dinosaurs and Indian sculptures outside, was hard to miss. On-street parking was free, but they charged us $10 per person to get in. It was well worth...  more »

  • This is a small campus so if you aren't willing to get to know the people and you go home every weekend you will not like USUE. However, if you like the idea of knowing people and being known then this is the place for you. Scholarships are great, the town is quaint, and the professors care about you. I went to USUE before transferring to BYU and it was a stark contrast. Though I loved BYU, Eastern cared about me. I was a person and my teachers were invested in me. The letters of recommendation I got from professors were incredible because I knew the professors and administration well. If you want to have a good time become friends with the local kids. They have access to boats, four wheelers, cabins, etc. If you sit in your dorm and wait for the fun to come to you then Price will be a disappointment. It's all about attitude.
  • I had a fantastic experience at USU-Eastern. The classes are small, the professors are personable, the tuition is affordable, the opportunities are countless. Like every college, there are things that USU-E will need to improve on, but I don't regret attending USU-E. I was able to be involved and gain experience in a way that would have been impossible in a bigger university. Love this school!
  • Do not go here! I went here for a semester and I hated every second of it. Most of the people that go to this school are from isolated small towns and seem disconnected from society! Seriously it is hard to relate to any of the people at this school. The Sports programs is a joke! The school dosen't even have a football team! Academics is an even bigger joke. The proffessors are extremely unproffesional and would show up late or cancel class alot! Student life was horrible! They had alot of dances but at the most 50 people would show up for them, it was so awkward! This place seriously felt like high school but even worse! I lived in the Burtenshaw dorm, the building was okay but the people that lived there were awfull! So noisy and gossipy! I did make a few friends though! Love you Krystal! Mostly everyone would go home for the weekends because nobody wanted to be there. Don't be fooled by the smiling faces on the adds and the recruiters for this school. You will hate it here especially if you are from the city! The only good thing was the town. Price is a pretty good small town with a stable economy and amazingly cheap rent and houses. Overall this is a failing school that probably won't be around for too long because of lack of enrollment. If you are looking for a small school with cheap tuition, Go to Snow College!!
  • teachers will not work with the students at all this school is a joke!!
