What’s so great about USU, you ask? Allow me to explain:
Meet Matt Meaker. We became friends with Matt through an Aggie service club called Best Buddies. The purpose of Best Buddies is to pair students up with people in the community who have disabilities. We’ve been paired with Matt for over 2 years now and we can honestly say he is our best bud!
Best buddies is just one in a plethora of ways to gain service and leadership experience at USU – that’s what makes this place so magical! As a matter of fact, Utah State practically wrote the book on providing students with excellent involvement opportunities. Cait and I agree that some of the most important pieces of knowledge that we have gained during our college experiences have come from outside the classroom: in team leadership and service settings.
We’ve gotten ourselves involved through:
- Student Government (ASUSU)
- Freshmen Orientation (A-Team)
- Freshmen Recruitment (Ambassadors, BlueCrew)
- Undergraduate Research
- Service (Best Buddies)
