The Built Environment: 130 Years of Growth, Development, and Change on the USU Campus: 130 Years and More to Come
130 Years... And More to Come
Utah State University sprouted from humble beginnings – a solitary building on a windy and arid hill. However, over the next 128 years, the university grew, constructing numerous buildings; several of the historic structures stand today as reminders of the institution’s past. Additionally, many structures were demolished as campus and curriculum development called for updated facilities. Yet, despite the fluctuating environment, the university’s commitment to providing students and faculty with quality education, recreation, and housing facilities remains steadfast. This obligation ensures that the Utah State University campus will continue growing and adapt to meet future challenges presented by an ever-expanding student body and changing educational landscape.
