Southern Utah University was founded in 1898 as a teacher training school; today it has 8,000 students and is consistently named by national publications as a best value school and as one of the best schools in the western US. The Braithwaite and Old Main buildings, shown here, are the two oldest buildings on campus. The Carter Carillon, located between them, was completed in 2007 and is part of a school tradition: students walk under the tower when they first arrive as freshmen, and don't walk under it again until they graduate.
