The University of Utah is currently developing a landscape master plan that aims to introduce more species diversity into the tree population on campus. This is beneficial because trees are less likely to spread disease to different species. The University of Utah has been a state arboretum for 55 years. In 2015, it received Tree Campus USA recognition by the Arbor Day Foundation after, among other things, forming a tree advisory committee, maintaining a campus tree-care plan and dedicating annual expenditures for the campus tree program.
The Union Market Place is located on the second floor of the Union Building, next to the Union Help Desk. While grabbing a soda, hot dog, chips or snack, patrons can enter to win prizes from the University Campus Store throughout the week. On Monday, free Coca-Cola sunglasses will be given out from noon to 2 p.m. while supplies last.
The Union Market Place is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and welcomes students, faculty and staff to stop in for a quick drink, snack or for those last-minute essentials that help get you though the day.
Taylor was born in 1941 and grew up in Salt Lake City, graduating from Olympus High School in 1959. He enrolled in his first math classes at the U in the fall of 1960, but decided to leave Salt Lake the following summer. Recognizing Taylor’s talent, U math professor Don Tucker helped him enroll at Louisiana State University at the graduate level in the fall of 1961. By the next year, Taylor had been offered a junior faculty position at Harvard University based on a well-received thesis. To fulfill Harvard’s hiring requirements, Taylor finished his bachelor’s degree in December 1963 and was awarded his doctorate the following spring. After a year at Harvard, Taylor returned to the University of Utah.

Ms. Wheelchair America took place in Grand Rapids, MI. over the course of seven days. McIntosh competed against 25 other contestants from different states. Although the contestants are showcased in pageant format, physical beauty in not a consideration. Of the experience McIntosh said, “I am excited and honored to be Ms. Wheelchair America 2017! I hope to use this opportunity to exhibit just how much you can do BECAUSE of a wheelchair, not despite it.”
If you would like to get involved or donate, please contact Eliza McIntosh at email@example.com or she can be reached at 801-792-7126.
Through Aug. 29, Bed Bath and Beyond will operate a temporary store inside the University Campus Store. There, students will be able to purchase bedding, small appliances, cookware and other household items alongside textbooks and other school supplies, helping to consolidate shopping trips in the busy days leading up to fall semester.
This marks the first time that students will have the opportunity to purchase everything they need for both school and home in one place. It’s also the first time that the University Campus Store will house household items to help students organize their kitchen, bedroom and bath spaces in concert with their academic and study spaces in a complete, convenient package.
As a special service to on-campus residents, the University Campus Store and Bed Bath and Beyond will be on site at the Heritage Center’s move-in weekend on Aug. 18-19. A slightly smaller version of the University Campus Store collection, the Bed Bath and Beyond table will feature dorm room essentials to help students make their new spaces feel just like home.
For more information, please visit the University Campus Store or call 801-581-6326.
