B6 All part of the master plan Q Matthew A. Jonassaint Asst. Life editor In last week's issue, the UVU Review reported that the former School of H.A.S.S. has split into the College of H.A.S.S. and the School of Arts. For the latter, many departments face problems of space problems that could be solved if new facilities are built. For years there has been a list of "master plans" for the campus, including plans for academic courses and technological changes to be made. When most people talk about The master plan, however, they are usually referring to a plan for new building facilities, for the course of the next decade or so. This master plan, as illustrated by the accompanying graphic art, includes new add-ons to buildings as well as new buildings and parking facilities. Cameron Martin, assistant to the president in the institutional development department, is enthusiastic about many of the future plans. "It's all very exciting," he said, adding that he hopes future UVU students will be able to benefit from the master plan soon. The first building on the list was the new library because President Sederburg believed it was the most pressing need. It was estimated at a little over $35 million at the time it was scheduled on the master plan but due to material demands after Hurricane Katrina, the market value rose and the price went up to about $48 million. Now that the project is completed, the next three buildings, scheduled in order of probability to be built first, are an add-on to the Pope Science Building, a new Performing Arts Center, and an add-on to the Woodbury Business Building. In addition to these, further down the list are an athletics add-on, a new field house, and an add-on to the Student See MASTER A3 UVU: is it really green? " ,,.i.,.i. ,... ............ ... 11 " i f : n"' " " ' 'J' 1 ' . ; I Trent Botes UVU Review UVU has a recycling program for paper, cardboard and aluminum. The blue bins around campus are for recycling paper. Money earned from recycling goes back into the recycling program to fund its services. UVU's program is not as extensive as other schools such as BYU and U of U, but is still taking the initiative to be green. The recycling program has room for growth O Amie Wells Asst. News editor Walking around campus, many blue recycling bins can be seen around the hallways. Although UVU has a recycling program, it doesn't quite match up to other campuses in the state. For example, the University of Utah has an expansive recycling program with an informative Web site. BYU is also heavily involved with recycling and has its own recycling center. Clay AUred, UVU's assistant director of operationsfacilities and technical services, said that UVU doesn't have the facilities or storage to do extensive recycling such as sorting between colored and white paper. Finances are also a factor that demands consideration when looking into expanding the recycling program. Allred said that the majority of the funds used to maintain the recycling program on campus come from profits made off of the recycling itself. Funds also come from the vice president's office, which pays for part of the labor, and the rest comes from the Sorensen Center budget. "I think over time (the recycling program) will probably grow," said Allred. It might take considerable time before UVU expands its recycling services, but the school is still taking some initiative to be greener. "We recycle cardboard, paper and aluminum cans," said Allred. "A lot of people ask about plastics, but right now we don't recycle them. Hopefully that is something that we can recycle in the future, but I can't guarantee it." UVU staff and students are encouraged to recycle paper by using the blue recycling bins placed throughout the hallways, in offices and student computer labs. Some places on campus have taken their own initiative to recycle their waste. For example, UVU Dining Services recycles their spent cooking oil. hi .Mi,N.'f For questions or requests for blue paper recycling bins, call Clay Allred at (801) 863-8869. "Bonneville Livestock, Inc., a company based out of Lehi, picks (the spent grease) up. They do charge us to pick it up and clean out our drums, but it's a minor charge," said Val Brown, the UVU director of dining services. "They take it and filter out the impurities and recycle it into biodiesel fuel." The UVU bookstore is also offering the service for students to drop off their ink cartridges ,and old cell phones to be recycled. Although UVU's program may not be as extensive as those of other campuses in the area, it does provide the basic services for students to recycle their paper, cardboard and aluminum cans.

News editor On Sept. 3 students had the. opportunity to learn more about the democratic process. Professor JaNae Brown Haas spoke about the subject in the monthly ethics forum Great Thinkers in the History of Democracy. This is the first of many to present here at UVU as part of Utah's Democracy Proj ect. The project's main goal is to further people's understanding of how a democracy works. The theme for the day was "The Ancient Athenian Experiment." Professor Haas' focus was the democratic government of the ancient Greeks. Before she began her speech she stated, "Every word that comes out of my mouth is a criticism Only a "Every word that comes out of my mouth is a criticism of the democratic experiment." Professor JaNae Brown Haas of the democratic experiment." And that is exactly what it was. "Democracy is not a very common form of government in world history. few civilizations have practiced it, and the first civilization that we have records of that practiced it in the Western tradition were the ancient; Greeks," said David Keller, a professor of philosophy at UVU and director of the Cenlcr for the Study of Ethics. Throughout the lecture, Haas covered almost 200 years of history. And with this she explained how the democratic society worked. "The Ancient Athenian Experiment" defined all of Greece: the fights, struggles and chaos of being or becoming a democracy.

New lab for forensics majors Jared Magill Managing editor The difference between ordinary elementary school kitchens and what was once the kitchen in the former Vineyard Elementary-now UVU's Education Building-is that in ordinary elementary school kitchens hairnets are obligatory and they typically do not have upwards of half a million dollars in equipment. But in EB 136 there is just that. And it's not a kitchen anymore; it's UVU'sstate-of-the-art forensic science lab, hairnets optional. There is an old saying in court proceedings to "let the evidence speak for itself." However, according to UVU's Director of Forensic Science, Dr. Gary Naisbitt, it often takes an entire panel of highly specialized experts who are well versed in the proper manner in which to gather analyze and interpret data and speak for the physical evidence of a given case, hence the need to train foren- See FORENSICS A3 klTT.
