In the late 1800’s, settlers in Utah’s Cache Valley had a dream to bring
higher education and greater opportunity to the people of the then
rural area. With little more than simple pioneering spirit and
determination, they opened the doors of the Agricultural College of
Utah in 1888 to a handful of students. Now known as Utah State
University (USU), that same founding spirit lives on today in Logan,
Utah, where present day enrollment exceeds 22,000.
