This, in addition to the difficulty many families experience every year due to a surplus in expenditures.These are hard times; but despite this fact, many people are finding that there is no better time to give then when the giver is in need. UVSC students are taking the opportunity to impart of what they have; whether it is in the form of food, clothing, gifts, time or even themselves, students and faculty are thoroughly involved in service to theirfellow-men. Located here at UVSC is the Service Center; and it facilitates much of this service. According to Christy Cowden, a generous number of programs and opportunities to serve are available to students through this center. Students can go to this resourceful center and look over a wide variety of occasions to be in service. Options include projects at UVSC and other community centers across Utah. Throughout this semester the Service Center in ventures to improve the appearance of Orem Park, tutor students at local public libraries, visit crisis centers and improve the physical appearance of the Navahoe Indian reservation. "We have had such overwhelming support from the students", said Grant Flygare of Net X News and The Service Center, "The only problem I anticipate is being able to , "-. - ... ..

He encourages all students and faculty to come and experience the wonderful feeling that comes through service. This Christmas, the Service center is proving a successful pooling point on behalf of Sub-For-Santa, several Utah County food banks, and any other charitable donations. flags, and take donations for the Sun-4-Santa program. As always, the center will be open for volunteers to inquire on current service needs and prospects The UVSC Library is accepting cans and items of food for fines. Students who have fines can bring in a donation of food and receive a one-dollar credit per item towards the payment of fines. Faculty and students alike are getting the chance to donate to those in need. UVSC is a part of the Students Serving Utah Network; a network of colleges and universities across Utah that participate in donating to the Utah Combined Food Bank. UVSC has six tons of food collected already and is one of the largest contributors to the forty ton goal. Deck the Halls is a project assumed by many clubs here at UVSC. Different clubs decorated small trees in the Hall of Flags and placed small donation boxes in front of the trees and students can donate money therein to the most fashionably decorated trees. The Giving Tree is located near Chick-Fil- A. Students can take a dove ornament off the tree and located on the bottom of the dove is a small gift allocation for the person to buy with the size and age of the child. With so many opportunities to give this holiday season everyone has the chance to contribute to the spirit of Christmas.

In speaking with them. It must be noted that they are enthusiastic about letting all the students know that these services are available 8c encourage students who can - to "Get Connected" Students having a laptop computer on campus may connect to the UVSC LAN (Local Area Network) in marked Ethernet active nodes. These connections are located throughout campus. (Hall of Flags, Library & some classrooms.) When connected one has unlimited capabilities as they browse the net at blazing speeds of up to lOmbps-lOOmbps. There are also dial up connections available for modem connections to the Internet. Wireless Networking Plans are in the works to create a wireless LAN in certain areas of Least Recommended CPU 486 DX 66Mhz Ram 16 32 HD 500 MB 1 GB Networking Card (PCMIA) 10 MBPS OS Windows 95 Windows 95,98 Pentium 133 10-100Mbps UVSC. This would allow anyone with a wireless NIC (Network Interface Card) to connect literally anywhere within the special wireless network boundaries. In this setting the usual thought of connecting would seemingly denote a mutually exclusive term when compared to the very nature of the Upgrade, which is w here the world is moving - from wires to, well "no wires". Many Airports and Schools have already made the upgrade. The costs involved for laptop users usually ranges between $79 and $200 depending on the brand and features of the card. Anyone can set up a wireless network in thier home. The only other step involved other than upgrading a Laptops PC card would be the purchase of an "Access Point" or a special hub that transmits the signals and connects them all together. Such a device typically costs a couple hundred dollars, however there are "Packages" where consumers get 2 wireless PC cards and the AP for only $250, a screaming deal for anyone if they consider the normal compiled costs of these devices to be in the $700-$1000 price range. With wireless only a few steps into the future for UVSC (Currently being tested). The School advises students against purchasing equipment now as there are still issues involved in the creation of the network. For one thing, it may not be working for a couple of months and even then it is supposed to be for staff. If it works for staff then the administration will consider extending the service to students. If it were up to me, the service would be up and ready as soon as possible for everyone.
