Humans of the U

HUMANS OF THE U: JEFF HANSON

January 16, 2018

“I’ve performed in plays, commercials and movies, and also produce videos for the University of Utah’s Marketing and Communications Office. On sets, I’ve had milk spit on me, found a severed-hand prop while working on an HBO project with Steven Soderbergh, had a Christmas tree fall on me (and was uncomfortably sticky for days) and ate more freeze-dried macaroni and cheese than I care to remember.”



HUMANS OF THE U: RACHEAL HOLIDAY

January 4, 2018

“I grew up on the Navajo reservation in Arizona, but many people who lived off the reservation don’t know their traditions. I try to tell my story, speak the Navajo language, and encourage others to use our traditional values as resilience to continue to go to school and fight through hardships.”



HUMANS OF THE U: AMY GRAHAM

“My moniker is The Bad Ass Valkyrie. I am a gold-medal winner in full-contact medieval combat and part of Team USA’s HMB League.”



HUMANS OF THE U: HONEY

December 12, 2017

“Hi (lick), I’m Honey! I work at the U now and I love it! I got hired because of my great personality and powerful nose. As a canine officer, my job is to sniff out trouble.”



HUMANS OF THE U: GABRIEL SPIEGEL

“Being surrounded by mountains is not something I was used to, coming from the East Coast. Having the mountains and that sheer open sky opened my eyes, and having access to that kind of nature literally right behind my dormitory at the university was spectacular.”
