College Town Recognitions

The Ogden City - Weber State University College Town Coalition has provided increased opportunities to recognize the many positive things happening in the Ogden community. The city has recognized numerous
successes of the university including community and cultural events, athletic and academic teams, theatre
productions, student leaders and professors. As WSU celebrated its 125th anniversary, the city was heavily
involved and placed 125 WSU flags around the Ogden City Municipal Building block.

On Nov. 4, 2014, WSU presented Ogden City with a joint presidential citation recognizing the unwavering
community support from city leaders, business owners, nonprofits and residents.
