Utah State University is located in Logan, Utah, a small city of almost 50,000 people nestled in the Wasatch mountain range. Utah is an important new immigration destination with one of the fastest-growing Hispanic populations in the country. Logan is also an ideal location from which to pursue diverse outdoor recreation opportunities – either in the canyons and mountains that surround Logan or in the many national parks located in nearby mountains and in Utah’s famous red rock desert country.Peggy Petrzelka
