One being, with living costs being as high as they are, despite how we feel when Moab is insanely overcrowded during the summer, employment can be painful to find in the winter for some. In winter it generally reverts back to a smaller crowd anyways. I sincerely doubt we will have an abundance of college students that move across the country just to attend Utah State University in Moab.
Bringing a campus to Moab would be incredibly helpful for our very own community to expand on education, and those opportunities it provides. Not only that, it would create more jobs.
Moab is ever expanding, regardless of how we feel about it. We rely heavily on tourism, and with that we need employees to fill the spots in the busiest times. Providing those with the possibility to further their education is beneficial to our society as a whole.
If the belief is genuinely wanting the best for all, take all of our community into consideration, not just how we as individuals feel. Nonetheless, the expansion for higher education is an absolute necessity to accommodate those with desires to do so. We have hotels popping up consistently over time, along with our advertisements all throughout Utah, and beyond. Our biggest events typically inspire the desire to live here, along with films. We should recognize that the publicity Moab has received undoubtedly factors heavily into its inevitable growth.
