The construction and enrollment seem to be at their peak. Does UVSC have room for more? Let us know by sending us a letter: preconceptionsnetxnews.net or drop us off a note atSC 21 4. A lot of hard work and effort goes into making UVSC a success every day. With around 20,000 students attending, the task can seem a little intimidating. From administration to ASUVSC, from Student Assessment to Learning Resources, UVSC's faculty and staff have one thing in mind: you. Think about the tasks performed in an average school day: you park your car (Parking 6v Transportation Services), enter theair-conditioned school (Maintenance), it- HfS - - I 1 and go to class (Faculty and Adjuct Faculty). When class is over, you get a bite to eat at the cafeteria (Food Services) and check out the Job Fair (Student Center). Without the seemingly countless employees and work-study students, UVSC could not function. So much goes into your education why not take advantage of it? Why not thank those who are here to help you, to serve you, to advise you? They're doing it for your benefit. Growing Pains Construction continues on the new Information Sciences building ) (left) just east of the library. UVSC (right) keeps getting better and better the more the campus grows. i J i i i UVSC is a good school. Really. I What began as a vocational school in 1941 to provide production training during.World War II has evolved into a legitimate institution of higher learning that is still rooted in its original soil. UVSC is dynamic among post-secondary institutions because of its long-standing commitment to provide education and training for whatever profession one wishes to endeavor. Right now, UVSC is going through some obvious growing pains. The immediate effects of the UV's rapid expansion is less parking, more walking, and noise, noise, noise. But if, for a moment, you could catch the vision that the Utah Board of Regents, our President, Kerry Romesburg, and our other administrative leaders hold dear, you would see how the present discomfort of growth will bring this school to a new plateau one where choice and opportunity will be in ever greater abundance. Although official numbers have yet to be released, UVSC's enrollment is at an all-time high. Why do students from all over the state and the nation flock to "the other school" in Utah County? Because UVSC truly is a good school, with greatness within our midst. JIT f i. Mi W ' 10. AFFORDABLE TUITION So 1 an Spend mare money on dates. 9. WILLY THE WOLVERINE Will that dude ever graduate? 8. HALL OF FLAGS Just on case I don't get enough rejection from my family and friends. 7. EDITED MOVIES It's about time they took out the trashy smut in those Disney movies. 6. CONSTRUCTION Building a better campus for student attending lone after I'm gone. - 5. TAKING CLASSES IN THE AUT0M0-TIVES BUILDING Nothing like diesel fumes to make you want to learn. 4. MARRIAGE-MINDED SINGLES Whafyou think I'm here to learn? 3. OUR CONNECTED CAMPUS Fresh air is highly overrated. 2. PARKING You have a better chance of finding a space at the Wal-Mart In South Provo. 1. THE COLLEGE TIMES Where else could I write a : top ten list? -Scott Champion TAMMY SWANKTHE COLLEGE TIMES TAMMT SWANKTHE COLLEGE TIMES Welcome back, welcome home Nothing compares to a now school year at UVSC By BOBBIN ANTHONY GUEST WRITER What a remarkable experience to be-on this campus when Fall Semester begins. There is an energy change that is almost tangible. For the last ten years of my life, I have been a witness to the phenomenon of "back to school" on a college level. I have come to find that there is nothing like 20,000-plus minds once again becoming engaged in the process of education. It may feel like all you do for the first few days is stand in lines registration, cashiers, financial aid, bookstore, parking, bookstore, ID desk, cafeteria. Just keep telling yourself that everything worth having is worth waiting for and the educational experience is definitely worth waiting in line a few minutes (okay a lot of minutes) for. To all of you who are fresh out of high school and are coming to UVSC for the first time, we welcome you - we welcome your enthusiasm and your excitement. We welcome your sense of adventure and even your lack of patience in dealing with those of us who don't seem to be moving at an appropriate pace. We love your fresh view of the world and hope you have the time of your life while here. To all of you who are returning to college after spending some years in other parts of your life (i.e. other jobs, other schools, children, etc.) we especially welcome you to UVSC. Don't look around and merely see the youth around you, see also your place in the education system. You are valuable here. Your life experience opens windows to understanding in the classroom. Your determination to improve your life helps those around you value this experience more because they will see that life is more rewarding with a good education. They don't see how much harder it is for you to juggle your other responsibilities in order to be here, what they will see is that you work harder, study more, ask more questions, attend class more often, and value the entire experience more than they do. You may feel out of place, but believe me when I tell you that there is no better place in the world for you to be and that you make this college a better place just for being here. To all of you who are returning to UVSC after a summer of fun, work or extra study, know that you're the example the new students look to for help. If you take just a few minutes and help someone who is having a hard time finding a classroom or understanding how to use the computer lab or the library, if you extend that help with a smile you can make all the difference in the experience of that individual who is new to UVSC. Know that it your continued enthusiasm that maintains the energy of learning on this campus.There are people who believe that the world, and particularly the United States, is going downhill quickly. Maybe if those same people were to visit UVSC during the first weeks of classes, they would regain their faith in the future of humankind. They would find that there is little to worry about. And if they were to register for a class or two, they would find that there is little time to worry anyway. Good luck. Go to class. Study hard.
