My name is Kurtis Wilkinson and I have also been a Wildcat fan for as long as I can remember. I graduated from Weber State, bleed purple through and through and have attended almost every basketball game for the last eight years. You could say that I have seen my share of dissapointments and happy times having sat in the student section at Dee Events Center as a member of the Purple Pak or now known as the SAA( Student Alumni Association). However you put it, I am a WILDCAT FAN and proud of it.
Anyone who knows about in-state rivalries knows that games between Weber State and the Utah State Aggies is exciting every year. I have to admit that there been little success in previous years for the Wildcats when playing the Aggies. This year was much different. Weber came out with avegence beating Utah State 73-63 and proving that they can play against any team, especially the Utah State Aggies.
The Aggies lost 6 of their 8 players from last years squad as Weber State brought back 7 players including Junior standout Damian Lillard and 3 point threat Scott Bamforth who scored 7 three pointers on Tuesday night. Head coach Randy Rahe was an assistant under Stew Morrill, head coach for the Aggies, years ago and it finally looks like the student is finally sending a lesson to his teacher. After four long years, and a victory against Stew Morrill and Utah State, the Wildcats are ready for a run at a great season and possibly an NCAA tournament birth even though it is still early in the season and a lot can change in that time.
I am not a sports writer by any stretch of the imagination, but with numerous years of fan experience I think that it is safe to say I am a veteran basketball fan and have seen teams come and go but I have never seen a team as dedicated and ready to play as the 2011-2012 Weber State Men’s basketball team.
Kurtis Wilkinson is an Admissions Advisor in the Weber State University Office of Student Recruitment.
It seems as if our the WSU Student Recruitment Office has been everywhere in the last month or so and we have loved it.
In this economic downturn, some of our neighboring state institutions have become crowded. This means Weber has become a viable option for those who are looking for an alternative. It’s exciting to inform student from the Western United States how Weber can help them reach their educational goals.
Here’s a clip of us in action in Las Vegas:
Here are a few things out-of-state students need to consider while investigating Weber:
- We have 200+ programs and amazing career center for those who may not know what they want to study yet.
- Average Freshman class Size is 28.
- Students have a chance to get in-state tuition through the Weber Edge program. We also participate in the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) for those who live out west.
- Begining next fall semester, our oldest on-campus housing option was built in 2001.
We in the office of Student Recruitment have been apart of the Homecoming Celebration for a long time. We get involved with the weekly activities, but the best part is having future Wildcats come to the game with us and there are TWO things we want to tell you about.
First, each year we invite all the High School Seniors up for our annual Tailgate Party where students get free food, free shirts, and free fun (that is if Bouncy Castles belong in your “fun” category). The students always have tons of fun and this year was no exception.
The Second thing you can count on for Gameday is Wildcat Football taking care of business. Our team beat Idaho State 39-12!
Weber State Graduation was this last Friday and our very own Admissions Advisor, Sky King, received his Masters of Business Administration (MBA).
Our office is heavily involved in the graduation ceremony and it’s always an inspiring site to see all the graduates achieving their goals. This ceramony was especially important to us as one of our own has sacrificed time and money to achieve to new heights.
FYI about Sky:
