Single mom goes back to school.

“Whatever your schedule is, Weber State prepares a way to work around it.”

Sandi came back to school after an 11year break, she thought she was too old to return but she soon found out that was not the case. After she returned she realized there is so much to learn outside of your degree program.

Sandi was just selected to be a part of the Diversity Board as the new community chair. She will be working with resources in the community to help educate students in different cultures and lifestyles. Right now she is building a relationship between Weber State and a nonprofit group called Holding Out Help, a polygamy rescue group.  She is hoping Weber State can become a major resource for those that are hoping to start a new life outside of polygamy.

“My favorite thing about Weber State is how many programs they have available to the students”

She loves that the students are part of what makes Weber so great. The students are not just paying tuition and sitting in on a lecture they are actually part of the student body.

Weber State Veteran Student featured in Salt Lake Tribune

Local student gives love a second chance

As part of their American Homecomings series, the Salt Lake Tribune just did a great piece on Jenn Comer. Jenn is an Iraq war veteran and Criminal Justice major at Weber State University who recently got married after having sworn off the institution (marriage, not Weber State). It’s a great piece about her wedding and how she’s gotten to this point in her life, but she’s been a superhero to us for a while now.
