"" "A Dave Iba UVU Review The house at 161 E. 800 S. in Orem now houses the Rico family after building construction students alongside Habitat for Humanity built the house to make the dream of owning a home a reality for the family of four. Habitat for Humanity ribbon cutting on UVU home Jennie Nicholls F 1 Editor at large Smiling faces along with an array of Wolverine green welcomed in the celebratory ribbon cutting of the first UVU Habitat for Humanity home. Wednesday May 28. A ceremony and barbecue party took place to commemorate the finished home built by 24 of the campus' building construction students in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity of Utah County (HFHUC). Excited students, faculty, community members and Habitat supporters joined together in the event ten months in the making. Construction on the home began in August with a groundbreaking ceremony on the three-bedroom home. UVU has been heavily involved in the entire building process of the home, up to the final decorating touches. Departments on campus sponsored individual rooms in the home and the collaborative effort led to a fully finished home for a family of four. Alexis Palmer of the Service Learning Center, along with Kena Mathews of Habitat for Humanity started off the ceremony by awarding gifts to those involved in the project's successful completion. Palmer noted that President Sederburg was the brains behind the project; Sederburg was then presented with a framed hammer as a gift of appreciation from 1 If 1 1UC mid to sti ve o3 a memento of the first house completed by UVU. The Rico family, consisting of Gerald Rico, his wife of 14 years, Teresa, and their two children, Shannon and Gerry were presented with a plaque to display in their new home featuring their move-in date and UVU logo. Palmer noted that she hopes the plaque will always hang inside the home to remind their family of UVU and hopes the Rico children will plan to attend in the future. President Sederburg thanked Palmer for her efforts in the project by saying, "I get credit for the idea, but later got the directions from Palmer." Noting that UVU hopes to be known as a university focused in community engagement and that Habitat for Humanity is a good example of what that means, Sederburg thanked the Rico family for letting UVU help. DeWayne Erdmann of the building construction department said, "It was a joy to work with my students," while he shared his experiences working on the home. He calculated that approximately 4,700 hours of labor went into the newly completed house. "A little training and a little direction turns into great things," Erdmann said. He thanked HFHUC for the opportunity to help the Rico family with their dream of owning a home. Fittingly, the members of the Rico family also gave thanks to HFHUC, UVU and to God for answering their prayers of owning a home in an emotional portion of the ceremony. Val Hale, Vice President of Advancement and Marketing, presented the family with the keys of the house and a bible, in the tradition of each finished Habitat for Humanity home to receive a bible. The actual ribbon cutting followed with Shannon Rico cutting the ribbon alongside her family, Sederburg, Erdmann, Mathews, Palmer, and John Roberts, a builder on the project. The Rico family moved into the home Saturday May 31. UVU also donated supplies for the home and raised money to fill the pantry. - " 1 http:www.un.intkoreaindex.asp Ambassador Kim Hyun-Chong addressed UVU students on May 19. He spoke of globalization and Korea. U.N. Korean ambassador visits campus Britnee Nguyen" " News editor' J As an honorary guest of UVU, Kim Hyun-Chung visited campus on May 18-23. He addressed a classroom of UVU students on his second day on campus and spoke on the topic of "Globalization and Korea." He spoke of South Korea's economic history by comparing their status in 1960 with $80 per capita income which was in par with Ghana and Bolivia. Today, they have $20,400 per capita income and has Free Trade Agreements with 45 countries, which is the most any country has implemented. "We are the only country that went to military dictatorship to democracy," Kim said. He then explained that what they need to do next is unification with North Korea. He also said they now have more obligations to support developing countries. "What we need are investments to create jobs. That's what these developing countries need to focus on." Kim also talked about how the U.S. is their most important country they trade with. He said trade has strengthened their alliance and that they have been with the U.S. in all of the recent wars. Topics were also discussed such as the strict Intellectual Property Rights in South Korea, the U.N.'s role in reunification, refugees and the rise of gas prices. UV OneCard IS ci plus Amie Wells News writer Sick of lugging your ID, bus pass, lunch money, and debit card around campus? Why not carry something that combines it all -- the new UV OneCard Plus? The UV OneCard is a multi-technology card that will take the place of old student or facultystaff IDs and Proximity cards, and will be issued at Campus Connection starting July 1. "Along with all of the basic functions of the old card, many new ones have been added," said Dawn Burgess, Manager of Campus Connection.The UV OneCard will allow access to library services, bookstore purchases, discount purchases at Dining Services, select door access and will also serve as a bus pass. In a joint effort with Utah Community Credit Union (UCCU), this new card will include the option to upgrade to a Visa Debit card with ATM capability, which will be called the UV OneCard Plus. UVU is the first school the country to combine this amount of technology in a campus ID card. "We heard about other schools having a Visa Debit option on their cards, so we teamed up with UCCU for a Visa pilot program," said Burgess. "Plus, we are looking to get our name out in the community and having our logo on a Visa Debit card seems like a great idea." "In order for students to' take advantage of the new UV OneCard Plus, they will need a checking account," said Brad Norton, Vice President of UCCU. "There are over 4,000 UVU students who already have an account through UCCU. Students who select the UV OneCard Plus will receive a free "Starving Student" Community Discount Card." Burgess also said that Visa Debit is not the only new technology feature for the UV OneCard, but plans are also in place for activating a chip inside the card to use as an electronic bus pass for the Utah Transit Authority (UTA). "I like the idea of an electronic bus pass," said a UTA driver. "Having riders wave their student IDs in front of card reader should cut down the time it takes for us to check everyone's IDs at each stop." For $20, students using a UV OneCard can also gain II I ' i tini-.ii i I r- I r t 1 1 v J, - .
