Aggies Create Enterprise

Utah State University equips students to turn passion into careers. Just like River McKay, who used her passion to help outdoors enthusiasts venture without limits, Aggies use their talents and skills to push boundaries. Jessie Lynn Richards (‘04) directs the nonprofit foundation Fight Against Domestic Violence, which focuses on increasing education, awareness and resources for victims, survivors and the community. She founded the Jessie and Jared Richards Scholarship Endowment, which provides a full-tuition scholarship for four years to students with low socioeconomic status interested in studying issues of family violence.

From those making an impact in the field to those in the office, USU sets out to create deep thinkers and life-long discoverers to create a better world. Degrees in religious studies, political science and anthropology set students up to find their passion and change the world.
