Get Inspired, Get Connected, Get Involved


For years, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences has welcomed new students and a new school year with its annual Light on the Hill celebration.

This free outdoor event is focused on all things CHaSS. USU students are invited to enjoy food, free treats, and entertainment while exploring clubs and meeting our alumni. Bring your friends and meet the people who make our college CHaSStastic!
