Comments from some business faculty included calling the trailer aesthetically ugly, an eyesore, and downgrading to the campus's beauty. 'The kids are calling us tacky tech," said Hugh Rode, instructor in the school of business. Another occupant of the business building, who requested anonymity, said, "It's like putting an outhouse in your front yard." The trailer that previously housed the student assessment center was vacated when the center was moved into the recently completed basement of the administration building. The open trailer space will provide a new office for the department of facilities planning and engineering. The planning department is currently housed in a building on 800 West next to the campus police building. Patrick Hayes, associate vice president of facilities planning and engineering, said that campus administrators wanted his planning office closer to the administration building, however, lack of office space prevented a move into the administration building itself. When the trailer was vacated the administration suggested that Hayes' planning office would occupy it, "It would be as close as we could get," said Hayes. After talking with Dick Chap-pell, vice president of administrative services and planning, Hayes decided that the current lack of plumbing in the trailer would prevent their office from moving into the trailer where it previously stood in the administration parking lot. "My conclusion in talking with my boss was that if I'm going to be there for a long time, that it would probably be better to try to put it in a place where we could get thosi.' plumbing connections made." Hayes estimates that the trailer will remain for six to eight years in its new location. After researching several campus locations, Hayes and Chappell decided that the business building location was closest to both the administration building and the needed utility hook-ups. The longer utility runs need edforother sites would have cost more than the estimated S4,000 cost. Physically moving the trailer will cost 52,300 said Bill Valgard- son,owneroftheP.E. Valgardson house moving company. Hayes estimated 51,500-52,000 will be spent completing the utility runs and grounds work. A private contractor will add a concrete sidewalk when the utility work is complete.Several of the business faculty including David Litch-ford believed that they should have had more input in the decision to place the trailer in front of the business building. "Its being placed in front of the business building, and our offices are in the business building. Why couldn't they have hidden it someplace instead of right out front where everyone sees the outhouse next to our home," said Litchford Hayes said that the business faculty were notified through the Ian Wilson, dean of the school of business, who reluctantly agreed 'K ;S4 ...""I -!v i 1 !" -i , '..,-"':,. - .- v ? ... t ' s 'l ' s..,--'""."" ;:X,.sl . i .

J Thomas Epting The College Timet Previous home of the student assessment center, this trailer will now house the office of facilities planning and engineering. The trailer, newly moved in front of the business building, has sparked verbal opposition from some business faculty who believe it degrades the campus's natural beauty. to its placement. Hayes added that the summer trees should camouflage the trailer. 'The location is really a result of a variety of compromises. It was the best we could come up with," said Hayes. Hayes and Chappell are re sponsible for the placement decision, though Hayes believes that Wilson and President Kerry D. Romesburg also had input. Chappell, Wilson, and Romesburg could not be reached before press time. Art work placed on campus, more to arrive Rick Swope Staff Writer Utah artist James Avati installed two of his life-size sculptures in the courtyard of UVCC campus last Thu, Nov 7. Avati, a graduate of the University of Utah with a Master's degree in sculpture, said, "The subjects are not ideal types, not romantic, they are meant to be in a natural pose like everyday people." In creating the pieces, Avati used live models for every session. The figures took Avati approximately a year and a half to complete and are made of 1 4 inch thick bronze. According to Holz, the money for the art comes from a state fund. "Itisan art gift to the campus and can not be removed because it is state property," he said. UVCC will rccieve three works of art before the project is done. For the first, the committee recommended a contemporary work, the controversial "Camel" structure was the result. "A third piece will be a laser montage and should be installed soon.

The College Times will feature a full review and phtitos in next week's entertainment section. Time to run out on debtors Record enrollment for fall semester at UVCC has brought record requests by students for short-term loans. Financial aid officers at UVCC attribute the rise in loans to students needing additional resources to pay tuition and fees. Close to 1,600 students borrowed just over $847,000 in order to register for the term," said Mike Johnson, director of financial aid. 'These loans come due Nov 20, and we encourage those students who haven't done so already to take the necessary actions in paying the loans back." Legal action and withheld grade transcripts are the result of unpaid loans. "The debt remains on record. Collection efforts are begun, and co-signers are contacted and asked for payment," said Johnson. "Regrettably, college services are withheld when loans are not paid back on schedule. That is, the defaulter will not be permitted to register for any future term until the loan is paid. Finally, failure to pay warrants reporting the default to credit agencies." 'The best advice for students who may be facing difficulties getting the funds to repay their loan by Nov 20 is to stay in school," said Johnson. "Dropping out only adds to the problem because credits are lost, but the debt remains. Everything possible should be done to meet the obligation."
