Utah State University

Utah State University Review

This land-grant college was established in 1888. Today USU has an enrollment of well over 20,000 and is a leader in such diverse fields as agriculture, natural resources, and space technology. East of downtown Logan, the USU campus is best toured by starting at the historic Old Main administration building—look for the bell tower.

Exhibits at the Museum of Anthropology in Old Main are entirely designed by students with faculty guidance. A large portion of the museum is devoted to the American West, but cultures from around the world are also represented. Exhibits change frequently, so it's a place you can go back to even if you've seen it before. 435/797–7545. Free. Weekdays 9–5, Sat. 10–5.

USU's Chase Fine Arts Center includes the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art. The free museum has revolving exhibits of works by locally, nationally, and internationally recognized artists, with an emphasis on artists living and/or working in the western U.S. 650 N. 1100 East St., 84322. 435/797–0163. Tues.–Sat. 11–4.
