On November 7th Snow College and Utah State University announced a partnership that will bring a four-year Business Degree to Ephraim.
For the announcement they had a variety of speakers that shared their vision and excitement for the program. It seemed as if the common goal among those involved in this partnership is to keep students from the six-county area in the six-county area.
During the announcement program Dr. Vijay Kannan mentioned that our degree from Snow College is important and should be our first degree of higher education, but we should not stop there. With the partnership it gives students the ability to receive a four-year degree a little closer to home.
President Carlston has led many “Go Badgers!” cheers but at this event he led a “Go Badgers and Aggies” cheer to celebrate that students will be graduates of both Snow College and USU. This new four-year degree is different than the other four-year degrees currently offered here at Snow College. Every student that completes the four-year business program in Ephraim will be a graduate of Utah State University.
Sanpete County Commissioner Steve Lund also shared his excitement for this new degree being brought to the six-county area. He talked about the opportunities that this degree is going to give not only students but to the community as well. They are hoping to be able to help students as they go on and achieve this four-year business degree.
They believe that if students receive their degree in business at Snow College they will be better able to serve their community. If they stay in the six-county area they will be able to provide the businesses and community members with a better knowledge of business.
Snow College and USU are excited for the growth and opportunities that this program will bring students and communities.
