As of December 28, 1984, the number of new applicants for Winter Quarter at UTC was 1,424. Last year at the same time, the number of new applicants was slightly lower at 1400. "Since the end of Fall Quarter 1984, the admissions office at the Provo campus have been busy accepting an average of 50 applicants per day," says Esther Webster, Assistant Director of Admissions and Records. Webster notes that the day before classes start, they generally process a large number of late-comers every quarter. Last quarter during that day, they processed a whopping 400 applicants. Starting with Winter Quarter 1985, there will be a new policy at Admissions dealing with the registration deadline. Two weeks after school starts, there will be no more applicants accepted with very few exceptions. Total enrollment for a quarter tends to stay consistent after the first day of class. The number of students that drop is usually equaled by the number of students starting late. Dick Chappell, Vice-President for Development and Planning, says, "Each YeOeffriQinifo ltd deeded DOac By Lynn Fausett Pledges are up in this year's UTC Challenge Telefund. B.J. Estes-Stover, Director of this year's Telefund, is particularly pleased since the total number of students attending is slightly lower than last year. Their goal for this year is $16,000. There are still phone calls to make and then the task of calling back on students missed the first time around. Monies are coming in at a faster rate than last year, and Estes is confident they will meet their goaj. Funds collected will be spent according to the dictates of the studentbody. Students can submit suggestions to the studentbody council for the spending of the money. These suggestions will then be reviewed and passed on to the upper echelons for the final decision. Usually there is a discrepancy between what is pledged and what is collected. With contributions coming in faster, it is hoped this gap will narrow. The Telefund was started as a result of the legislative cutbacks in funding for the UTC: The council proposed the idea that students would be willing to donate money that would be spent directly for their benefit. Students are" asked to contribute $1.00 for every school quarter they will spend here at the UTC. Estes emphasized Totals mmwmwtmwmmmmiiitWkm X''. iiiii,.iiriii I iijiingM "' , w " f I : : ' ' i The long registration line moves smoothly as students chat with each other. year at Fall Quarter, 20 percent of the students that apply end up not attending class." The reasons for this he says are because many students will apply to both BYU and UTC, leave on missions, find jobs, or get married. According to Chappell, this is characteristic of all the other colleges in the state as M. Electronics, Busir. 3 Management, and General Education courses are seeing the greatest increases in Bi?3inigs that this is a very minimal sum compared to what other fund raising organizations usually ask. If a student wishes to donate but has lost the envelope mailed to them, they can drop by Estes' office (BU 127) to make the contribution. Estes is very appreciative of the support that has been given to this year's Telefund. It is a very worthy project and she encourages all students to give. New Graduation Policy Established Deadline dates for application for graduation are: Spring February 8, 1985; Summer Spril 26, 1985. A new graduation policy has been put into effect and reads: The deadline for submission of the application for graduation is not later than the end of the fifth week of the quarter prior to graduation. Be sure the graduation application is submitted with a $10 application fee paid, an up-to-date transcript and departmental advisement sheet attached. The graduation office is located in the main hallway of the Orem Campus Student Center. The Official Student Newspaper of Utah enrollment. Some programs, such as nursing, fill up from time to time, but would-be nurses are generally able to take other courses until an opening is available later on. Chappell confirmed last year's high mark for total enrollment as being 6,010. Of that number, 4,500 or 4,900 are students seeking a major offered at UTC. The remaining 1,100 to 1,400 students are General Education transfer majors. Twenty-five Utah Transit Authority buses arrived in Utah Valley last Monday, January 7, 1985. The recent introduction of the Utah Valley service will be a great addition not only to the ProvoOrem area, but also to the students at Utah Technical College. Currently there are six routes and more than 400 bus stops in the two cities. Route information is available on signs at the 400 plus stops. UTA has also planned to have a bus route schedule, which outline the routes and fare schedules, to be mailed to every household in Provo and Orem. The scheduled routes currently allow hourly stops at the UTC campuses. Bus times and additional UTA information is posted around both campuses. Eventually the UTA system will phase-out the UTC shuttle which has provided students transpotation between campuses. The 45-passenger buses, each identified with UTA's red, white and blue insignia, are to become obvious sights in Provo and Orem. Brief inaugural ceremonies were held at UTC Orem campus in the Sorenson Student Center Ballroom last Monday, January 7th.
