Land pnrdhase provides much space for intranrarals By GLADIS HIGGINBOTHAM News Writer The school board of trustees has recently approved the purchase of 100 acres of property located between Center Street and 1600 N. on Geneva Road in Orem to serve as intramural fields. "We are just waiting on approval from the board of regents and other state entities," said Chris Taylor, associate vice president of marketing and communications.

During a normal workday, Potter stops to talk to Elsa, a Bolivian street vendor. Potter asks Elsa what she thinks about the government's efforts to make the Aymara language more prominent in Bolivia. The anthropological method requires that Potter stay out of the way of what Elsa wants to say, allowing her to guide the flow and direction of her response, rather than being driven by Potter's pre- J t'A! aj k.- .i. , i - " ir-.- L.- lU.iul L- m mm m i i J Is the Geneva purchase worth it?

"The school only needs to come up with $5 million to acquire this valuable property," Taylor said. Taylor also mentioned that tuition will not go up because of this purchase. The money to pay for this land will be coming from the sale of the property recently sold to UTA across campus by the Moun-tainland Applied Technology College and possibly a loan from the conceived ideas or motives. Elsa tells Potter that although learning Aymara might be culturally significant, it doesn't improve her economic situation. If she could communicate in English, even rudimentarily, she could run her small business more effectively. Language is a major lens through which Potter studies the effects of globalization. According to Potter, linguists predict that "90 percent of the world's languages will disappear completely in 50 years" due to the rapid pace of worldwide technological expansion. Copacabana, Potter's home base for research, is a small tourist town along the Bolivian leg of the Gringo Trail, and makes for a per JULY 5, 2010 " ",Mr:A"3;:-:: Aj Vv'' .

Taylor is very enthusiastic about this project and believes that it will benefit the school tremendously. He also said that if the proposal is approved, the fields will be ready for student use as early as fall of 2011. "There is a lot of speculation about this land and its use, but it's all premature," Taylor said. "There are no hard plans other than our short term goal to build intramural fields, which are much-needed fect microcosm of the worldwide effects of a more global economy. Inhabitants of Copacabana, like Elsa, are almost purely of indigenous descent. Most speak Aymara, an ancient tribal language, as well as Spanish. But with the constant flow of tourists, residents of Copacabana feel the need to learn another international language, especially English. Potter has noticed this in the common conversations she initiates with Copacabana residents.Conversing with residents is a major tool in her research. From the conversation with Elsa and others of its kind, Potter monitors cultural shifts due to globalization. When asked how her summer - , 1 I tm I -I I ' a-" - V '.

Associate Director of Athletics DJ.
