Your moment awaits

There’s a moment during your first week on campus when you look around and say to yourself, “This is my home.” It might happen as you’re sprinting across Richer Commons with your roommates during a campus-wide game of capture the flag. It might hit you during your first 2:00 am trek to Dee’s diner for milkshakes. Or, it might settle on you quietly as you’re studying in your room with a window full of Wasatch mountain views. However it happens, you’ll know you are exactly where you’re meant to be.
