Sothara Tieng

(435) 797-7315

I graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Apparel and Textiles within the College of Business. While attending Utah State University, I helped co-found Theta Nu Xi, Multicultural Sorority, Incorporated, Epsilon Chapter at USU in the Spring of 2000. During my time at Utah State, I was involved in numerous clubs within the Multicultural Student Services, currently known as the Access and Diversity Center.

Prior to working at Blue Square, I had worked in retail clothing stores and multi-family housing.  I soon realized I wanted to continue working in the housing industry. I started out at as a leasing agent in 2006 and quickly moved my way up to a manager. Afterwards, I gained experience and training in Section 42 Housing.  With the knowledge and experience acquired, I went and expanded my career to student housing with Blue Square in January 2014. I continue to love Blue Square and I’m very fortunate to be the Senior Coordinator for this beautiful community.

I'm starting my sophomore year here at USU and am a student in the Quinney College of Natural Resources. I enjoy photography and backpacking in our public lands.
