R n no ri Vol. 9 No. 2 OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER OF UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE AT PROVOOREM October 10, 1980 3) YU G.E. Students Fill Thursdays Lines Fall means changing colors, football games and taking an hour to register for school, right? WRONG! Long lines greeted new registering students and surprised those in charge. The actual number of students far exceeded the expected enrollment. Many waited in lines for classes that often times were closed, Bruce Carter commented. Prior years the system we have used has worked. This year, however, many were students from BYU taking general ed. classes." In the future,- pdcii-tional plans and schedules are being discussed and approved to avoid the problems experienced during registration week. If that wasn't frustrating enough, you probably stumbled out of registration and discovered your car in the process of being towed away. Needless to say, - y ) i Registration on Wednesday and Friday went very smoothly with few lines. However, Thursday was a different story. Students complained of standing in lines for long periods of time, only to find classes closed. Registration officials feel they will be able to solve some of the major complaints by registration next quarter. Thursday's registration problems were unexpected and repeatedly apologized for. Depending on whether or not these problems are worked out, we may contrast ourselves as") "cattle going .Jto slaughter." Student Council Discusses Bus And Parking Problems V j i l i. r cci . UTC Beard Contest Mow Underway If visitors come to UTC, they might think it had the grubbiest students, faculty and staff members in town. Most of them haven't forgotten to shave. They've signed up for the "Beard Growing Contest. The contest's for UTC students, faculty, and staff members. It started Monday, Sept. 29 and everyone was given until Oct. sixth to check in at the Student Activities Office clean shaven, so that no one would have a head start. Judging of the contest will be during the intermission at the Deer Hunt Dance, Wednesday, Oct. 15. The prizes include a $50 gift certificate for first place, a $25 certificate for second and a $10 certificate for third. Tryouts Wed. For Mascot r v Tryouts for the 1980-81 UTC Wolverine mascot will be held Wednesday, Oct. 15, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the Orem Campus Student Center Cafeteria. Participants will be judged on school support, spirit, personality, enthusiasm and agility. Harvest Holiday Begins Next Friday This year UTC's Harvest Holiday will begin Friday Oct. 17th and end Monday Oct. 20th. All classes will be suspended for these two days. It has long been anticipated, judging by the beards on some of the students' and instructors' faces. The first Harvest originated because the men needed the time off for hunting, as the meat was needed to help care for their families. It was also the time to harvest crops. Our Harvest holiday this year will begin Friday Oct. 17th and end Monday Oct. 20th. In the Student Council meeting this past week, two subjects, parking space problem and the bus situation, were discussed. Due to the number of students attending UTC this year, the parking lots are not sufficient for the students cars. A new parking lot will be opened the end of this week with 100 to 150 spaces available. This area is located south of the campus. As you have heard, the buses to and from UTC have been cancelled due to lack of sufficient funding. Mark Fisher, the Student Body President said the bus service is necessary and a petition to reinstate busing will be circulated around the campus. Between 500 and 1000 signatures will be necessary.
