"I am a huge advocate and supporter of this wonderful summer program for seniors desiring new adventures. I have been an active participant in the program for over fifteen years. I am a Cache Valley native and a retired naval officer inspired by the knowledge I gain and the interesting people I meet by attending the many wonderful courses.

"We love the opportunity to take wonderful classes on a variety of subjects. The Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre Company offers world-class productions and informative seminars. The daily concerts at the Tabernacle, the Sunday Lectures Under the Trees, and the plays at the Lyric Theatre Company add to the amazing culture of the area. The people of Logan are warm and welcoming and the city of Logan is located in the beautiful Cache Valley, surrounded by gorgeous mountains."

"The summer of 2021 was my first year participating in the Summer Citizens program in Logan, Utah. And did I ever love it! The opportunities for learning, for experiencing new adventures, for meeting new people, we're really quite limitless. The Utah State University campus as well as the community of Logan were extremely welcoming and accommodating to program participants. I look forward to returning year after year."

John & Kathy Lawless

"2021 was our 10th year coming to Logan. It is not just a place to go for the summer it has become our second home. We have made many new lasting friendships over the years which continue even when we are back in Arizona. The people of Logan are so welcoming and the USU program caters to us. There is so much to do between the college classes, free concerts and free lectures. Then we have the Lyric Theater, the Utah Opera, pickleball, golf, hiking and a lot more. The weather is spectacular, and the scenery is magnificent. Come and join us, you will be so glad you did. We love being able to promote this program."

Mike & Carrie Lindner

"We love coming to Logan every summer (even during COVID). As many others have said there is a lot to do, music, hiking, golfing, plays, etc. The weather is wonderful but one of the biggest advantages to being in the Summer Citizens Program is the people we have met and made friends with. We talk up the program to everyone we meet and some have decided to join us."

"We absolutely love Logan! The Summer Citizen program is a stroke of genius. It gives you an opportunity to learn from a fantastic selection of classes taught on the beautiful campus of Utah State University. There are three historical theaters with top notch performances, hiking, biking, fishing, golfing photography, and a variety of restaurants all within minutes. The city of Logan and surrounding Cache Valley have events planned all summer long and the local people are so friendly and helpful!"
