Times change, and Utah Valley State College is no different. From its beginning, as a vocational school located on the Utah County Fairgrounds in Provo, to its ever growing campus here in Orem, Utah, UVSC continues to grow and affect the lives of Utah Valley residents. It appears that growth, however, isn't being sacrificed to excellence. UVSC continues to grow, and, as it does, its reputation grows as well. Now it stands as the fastest growing school in Utah, with its student body increasing by about two thousand per year. This growth is supported by an increasing number of four-year degree programs. As of June 1st, there are over twenty four-year programs.During their monthly meeting, the State Board of Regents approved three new degrees that will help round off the science department. Mathematics, chemistry, and physics will be added to the college's School of Science headed by Dean Sam Rushforth. These programs along with the new four-year nursing degree, approved in May, the new School of Computer Science and Engineering Technology, and the Secondary Education four-year degree will all begin this Fall.' College President Kerry D. Romesburg believes that the new school, and the four-year degree program for Secondary Education have the most possibilities for growth, "they both have huge growth potential." This fall should prove to be the beginning of many new features and programs at the ever-expanding Utah Valley State College. New additions to the college also include a new roundabout and parking lot. Despite this growth, UVSC continues to maintain its standard of excellence. In last Thursday's Board of Trustee's meeting, Dr. Elaine Englehardt, founder of Ethics Across the Curriculum (EAC) and Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs, and Dr. Brian Birch, associate director of the Center for the Study of Ethics and assistant professor of Philosophy, received an award for their excellence and contribution toward the ethics program and its national recognition. Dr. Englehardt headed the establishment of UVSC's EAC program. She was also instrumental in UVSC receiving the coveted Hesburgh Award. This award honors "long-term, successful college and university programs that which have strong impact on teaching and learning," Englehardt said. The EAC program allows for ethics conferences that bring in speakers from many different fields. A recent conference welcomed Tibet's spiritual and exiled political leader, His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. Other speakers also include individuals from the areas of medicine, genetics, and environmental ethics. Dr. Birch competed recently against ivy-league schools, such as Loyola, Dartmouth, and the University of Oregon for the spot as editor of a new national journal. Teaching Ethics is the journal of the newly established Society for Ethics Across the Curriculum. Teachers and professors from all across the country contribute to the journal which was just published its first issue. The next issue is set to come out in October. The journal discusses the teaching of ethics in higher education. Dr. Englehardt and Dr. Birch both admitted to the fact that these accomplishments were a team effort. The collective consensus in the Board of Trustees o meeting was that other colleges and universities across the nation envy the support UVSC's administration faculty and students. Scott Abbott, department chair and director of the Integrated Studies program, and Dr. Englehardt participated in the Ethics Center Board. Dr. David Keller, the Center's director, also played a significant role in the status of UVSCs ethics program and national recognition. As with most changes, something new comes and something old goes. Two programs are leaving the college: machine tool technology from the school of Technology, Trades, and Industry program, and, professional driving, the campus's most expensive program. Reasons for the cuts include high cost and low student enrollment. The machine tool technology program cost the college just over $9,000 per student, and the professional driving program cost UVSC $27,000 per student for the five enrolled in the program last year. During the college's shrinking of the programs faculty have been released and a few remain. UVSC, however, is committed to helping the teachers who continued on pg. 3 see "Degrees" 6000 students to study over the summer By 'Eseta Havaa OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Divide by 3 the total number of students enrolling in a typical Fall or Spring and that is approximately how many Summer School goers there are. In the sequel and codicial parts of last Spring semester, Wolverines were faced with the decision of whether Summer school was an option or not. Only about 6,000 students registered, and this number isn't expected to change all that much throughtout the 5 or so blocks of summer school. With UVSC, growing more and more into a multiformity institution, the perspicuity of classes and degrees offered plus numerious extracurricular activities alarm students to take advantage. But with many good things both comes advantages and disadvantages. 9 out of every 10, agree on getting credits done with faster as the biggest pro and the biggest con is missing out on fun especially with summer as a time for vacation, relaxing, friends and cruising. Sophomores Fanga'eva and Tolofi Nasio agree. Gath Jack from South Africa exclaimed, " Shorter classes can both be a pro and con. Everything is crammed into a shorter period of time but you get it done with faster." continued on pg. 3 see "S ummer ; Infill 22rI !; ; 1 - -I ' I -r ' y ' : Mn IR0WN, NETXNEWS Although summer studies take away from vacation time It's a good way to get a head In school Summerfest returns By Danielle White OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Homemade fudge chocolate boiling in a dutch oven cook-off tickled prK.e hairs, luring literally hundreds to follow the scent in hopes to get a taste of just one sweet little morsel. The majestic aroma, among a slew of carnival rides, parades, contests, craft and service booths, and the reverbrating sounds of top-notch talent, coaxed residents to Orem City Park June 8-9 where the annual Summerfest Celebration was held. "Our family really enjoyed this year's Summerfest," Jane Clayson, said. "We-went both days, but Saturday was the most fun. There was a parade and fireworks and a baby contest. It was really family andcommunity-oriented," she said. Various activities such as a tennis and Softball tournament, 3-point basketball contest, free children's crafts, hoopla hoop and bubble gum blowing contests, catered to community members of all ages. Among the favorities were the "Taste of Orem" where free food samples were available, and the live entertainment especially "Magic Mike." "I took my kids to see the magician, but there were plenty of adults including kids laughing and having a lot of fun," Karen Walsh, said. "I think the rest of part went empty when 'Magic Mike' performed. He really got the audience involved. We just enjoyed him and had a good time." Tyler McKenna, who also saw the magic show, agrees. "I don't have kids. I'm just a kid at heart. 'Magic Mike' was one of the highlights of Summerfest, but so were the Miss Orem girls. The two who sang had very nice voices," McKenna said. "Te best part of all was standing in line for an hour hoping to get a free sample of the food! That was definitely worth it because it was so good. Free, homemade food is always the best tasting." Performing in the talent festival were several children's dance studios such as "Sunshine Generation," "Elite Dance," and "Center Stage."

Many dedicated associates at UVSC including Clay Chivers, Von Del Chamberlain, Renee Van Buren, Daniel Horns, and Paul Taylor at the South West Desert Institute organized the once in a lifetime trip. The meaning of the trip was to give the students an experience of a lifetime, a learning experience that could only be taught among the rain forests and volcanos of the Hawaiian Islands. Many unique native tour guides showed their guests the true meaning of the Hawaiian spirit through its historical and religious beliefs. The participants were taught songs, chants and ancient myths. "It was so neat to have real native guides tell us about how there ancestors used the stars to navigate between the islands, many of the tour guides were really fun and eccentric" Jim Welsh said commented about his experience in Hawaii. One of the famous men that run the expeditions is Sigmund Zane a native to the Hawaiian Islands. Sig Zane has lived on the Big Island for the past 17 years. He has studied Hawaiian culture since 1975 and traditional Hawaiian dance with the Halau o Kekuhi School since 1981. Jim Welsh added that he was inspired after the trip to research his Polynesian roots because of the interesting culture in the Hawaiian Islands. Mauna Kea, the world's highest island mountain is the world's premier astronomical site. Clear, dry skies and a 13,796-foot elevation provide ideal viewing conditions; ten countries have built state-of-the-art telescopes on the dormant volcano's summit. The visitor center at 9,300 feet has astronomical displays and, Thurs.-Sun. p.m., stargazing from an 11-inch telescope provide the perfect site for Daniel Horns and Grant Flygere to steal a glimpse of their favorite constellations all continued pg. 3 see "Hawaii" UVSC students compete at Miss Utah By Danielle White OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Former ASUVSC President Baron A. Rohbock once boasted that "if you want a good education, there are nine different institutions in the state to choose from, but if you want an excellent education you go to UVSC." Perhaps, he wasn't merely boasting. Four ladies from UVSC competed in the Miss Utah Scholarship Pageant June 11-16 at Mountain View High School. Jeanna Cunningham, Ashley Garbe, Maranda Lamb, and Nicole Shaw each vied for the coveted state-wide title, presenting their platforms and hoping to blaze a trail of hope, leadership, and continued pg. 3 see "Miss Utah" m. anno ;r I I m DANIELLE WHIIfNETXNEWS From left: Larlssa Kanno, Nicole Shaw, Christine Youngberg, Jeanna Cuningham, Ashley Garbe, Maranda Lamb, Rebecca Marchbanks.
