Sports, ROTC, College and Life
Semi-pro women’s football player tackles them all
Throughout the year, you might have noticed cadets from Weber State University’s Army ROTC program participating in a variety of activities on campus, from military exercises to sports.
It’s probably safe to say that, of those activities, football is Veronica Siqueiros’ favorite. A command sergeant major in the ROTC program, she’s often picked first by her fellow cadets when dividing into football teams. It makes sense. Who wouldn’t want the running back from the Independent Women’s Football League championship team on their team?
Experiencing Life in a Whole New Way
Study abroad program gives criminal justice majors new perspectives
It was softly raining, the kind of rain that makes everything around seem peaceful and fresh, as Steiner Houston, a sociology and criminal justice student at Weber State University, and his trip roommate, Tony Graf, Salt Lake County deputy district attorney, walked down a London road that led to Westminster Abbey.
Because of their interest in criminal justice, they sought out the Secret Intelligence Service’s (MI-6) building and attempted to take pictures. Suddenly, an MI-6 security officer popped out of an alcove the duo hadn't noticed. “You’re not allowed to take photos here,” the officer announced. Then, without further explanation, he retreated to his alcove, out of the rain, Steiner recalled.
Good Memories & an Exciting Future
Renovations of Lindquist Hall mix innovation and nostalgia
Frank Harrold, dean of the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences, checks on the progress of the Social Science building renovation. As he stands on the east side, he can see straight through to Harrison Boulevard, and he gets a bit nostalgic.
“My favorite memory is the 40th anniversary celebration we held for the building in 2013,” he said. “The crime lab was open for fingerprinting; visitors searched for treasure using a GPS system; and children dug through dirt for fossils. It was a fun day, where we spotlighted all of the tremendous programs we offer.”
