In the wake of Governor Mike Leavitt'smultimillion-dollar technology proposal, President Kerry D. Romesburg announced at a Board of Trustees meeting last week that a new school is in the works. The school would be the seventh at UVSC and include realignment of existing programs including 10 new programs that would start as emphases for current majors but later develop into full-fledged, individual degrees. Romesburg outlined plans for the school to meet Governor Leavitt's recent technology initiatives that challenge to double the number of engineering and technology graduates within the next five-years; triple in eight. "This is something we have been planning anyway, it just happens to fit in nicely with the governor's proposal," Romesburg said. If the state legislature approves the governor's proposed budget and the Board of Trustees approve Romesburg's, it is expected that the addition will be completed and ready for student use by next fall semester. "This is one institution that can deliver fast," Romesburg said. "We have the faculty and the resources, and we can deliver." Programs the new school will feature include computer engineering, semiconductor manufacturing, e-commerce, music, mathematics, secondary education with an emphasis in math, physical education, and health.

TAMMT SWANK THE COLLEGE TIMES I V i 'K i I ' V 1 : s - 7 MATT BROWNTHE COLLEGE TIMES Val Peterson, Associate Vice President ot College Relations, shares his views on issues affecting UVSC. City to build more housing By LAURA CLAY OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF OREM Reportedly, UVSC is expected to grow by 33 percent (or 10,000 new students) by 2010. Orem city planners are looking for ways to meet the high Remand by continually proposing housing projects. Recently, developers Heath Johnson and Jeff Damron met with city planners to further plan and build the University Parkway crossing development The Village. They discussed how the 43-acre student housing and retail area will best serve the community. The proposed complex will house up to 6,000 student with amenities such as swimming pools, a sandy beach, an on-sight grocery store and restaurant. A possible student employment center may be available as well. Additional housing project ideas include Ivy Hall south of University Parkway in Orem. It is expected that facility will house an estimated 600 students. Orem city council reported that they are currently entertaining additional areas for student housing villages similar to The Village and Ivy Hall. Ken Young, Orem city planner, said that sites that are in relatively close proximity to the campus are the most ideal. "We don't want to spread out across the city because that would increase the traffic impact city-wide," Young said. "To facilitate the planned growth, Orem planners are looking at a new round-about at the intersection of 400 West 1200 South and a fifth road to access the college grounds," he said. 1 -r I ' ' i (')) ' MATT MOWNTHE COLLEGE TIMES Expectations that the student population In Orem will Increase have prompted developers to create more housing and meet hgh demands. Places such as Green Briar, Remington, and Courtside have been recent additions to the community and are already bursting at the seams. It has been said that there are over 23,000 UVSC students, an estimated 1,500 college-age students who live in student housing while working, and an additional 60,000 college-age students in Provo, placing incredible crunches every semester. 'Editor's note: Definite dates for groundbreaking and completions haven't been officially set as of press time. Did you know?

Prestigious companies from around tlx nation will he on hand to assist students on making a future career clmce . By OVILLA WILSON OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Need a job after graduation, but don't know where to look to find a real career? There is no need to travel across the country looking for work because the UVSC Career Employment Services Department has recruited at least 72 big-name companies, each looking for serious full-time employees who want to begin a career. "We made it clear to these employers that they are here to recruit full-time employees not to find temp workers," Wayne Manglesong, one of the fair's organizers, said. Employers will be on campus February 1 talking to students, accepting resumes, and setting up interviews. On February 2 some companies will return to campus to conduct interviews. To make the most of this event, Jenna Livingston, Administrative Secretary for the Career Employment Services department said students should come dressed professionallyand prepared with a resume so they can make a good impression. "One teacher I know of asked his students which of them were planning on going to the Career Employment Fair here on campus. The students said they were going to BYU's fair because they thought that the companies there would be better, but we've got the same ones," Mangelson said. UVSC's fair is scheduled for the day after BYU's so that the employers attending BYU's fair can also come here. "These are not second-rate businesses," Mangleson said. For more information call the Career Employment Services Department.
