Announcements and Events 

Congratulations to Hope Eggett on her new job at Ogden’s Museums at Union Station. Hope says of the opportunity: "as it is a smaller museum, I’m able to do everything from research and exhibit writing to archive care to educating the public. All of my experiences at USU have been great in preparing me for this role."
