Faces of Utah State University

by Ali Snow

It’s no secret that Utah State University is not what we might consider the most diverse campus. But what if we discard the typical enrollment statistics regarding gender, race, socioeconomic status and religion? Don’t we all contribute to the diversity of our communities by just being ourselves, unique human beings who are tiny microcosms of the universe?

Taking inspiration from Brandon Stanton’s “Humans of New York,” photographer Kate Palmer and I decided to catalog the human existence at USU. The following are snapshots and words containing universal truths gathered from chance encounters on campus. Although we may not all share these exact experiences, we can relate to aspects of each story. And the funny thing is, the more we study diversity, the more we realize just how similar we are.
