r Mana brings people together Rich Asay News Editor Last Week, UVSC hosted the first ever Polynesian Week sponsored by the Governor's Office of Polynesian Affairs. The event was to celebrate Mana, the word used throughout Polynesia meaning spirit. Polynesia is an area defined by a triangle in the South Pacific. It encompasses Samoa, Tonga, Maori, Tahiti, Hawaii, and Fiji. Each of these people speak their own tongue, and have their own traditions. Five days and nights filled with entertainment which varied in culture through out the different island's people. Aug. 13 kicked off the event with a performance by the Jets and Kapena & Sakiusa. Over 2,000 turned out for the concert of bands. "It was a great show," said Simuoko Nau, originally of Tonga now living in Provo. A special appearance by the Princess of Tonga, Pilolevu Tuita, who came to Utah just for the celebration. She was here for several days of the celebration. Traditional food was served by Hawaiians, Samoa ns, and several other unspecified groups. Food like Kailua Pig were favorites among the crowd. A Taste of Paradise from Murray, prepares Kailua Pig by wrapping the pork in a taro leaf and then season it with liquid smoke and Hawaiian salt and then steamed.

Page 29 Events Center up and ready for Fall semester Kami Fehrenbacker Feature Editor Construction at UVSC has been in progress for the last two years and is finally coming to a close. The physical education part of the new building will be opening for classes this fall semester. The project of the physical education building and the special events center has been in progress for quite a few years. Gilbert Cook, College Relations vice president has been working on the idea of a special events center for almost ten years now. "It's going io be the crowning jewel of this campus," said Cook. The special events center will not be completed until January of 1996 but the physical education portion is done and ready for classes to begin. The building has much to offer the school. "I think now that we are in the four year program that the new building opens more areas, and avenues and more opportunities for increasing our offerings of bachelors programs," said Cook. The building has seven knewclassrooms,- two dance rooms, eight racquet-ball courts, one of which is the show court with two walls made of glass, locker rooms, an aerobic room, a weight room, a conference room and offices for the physical education faculty. Walking through the hall of the building, don't worry about not feeling like your still at UVSC because they went to great length to keep the beautifully painted green, yellow and orange pipes over head. It is a part of the schools heritage. The 80,000 square feet building is going to be a wonderful addition to our growing campus, but the real attention getter is going to be the new Special Events Center towering next to it. Brent Roberts, director of the Special Events Center said, "the primary focus of the Special Events Center will be to provide for the social needs of the college community." The Center has the ability to host many activities that we would have to otherwise go to Salt Lake. Of course our own Wolverine sports will have the ability to play in the main arena but so will the teams that make it to the high school state championships. Not only will we have sports but now concerts can be held in Utah valley. They could host any dirt events such as rodeos. Car shows and community events and about anything you could think of can be held here on our campus. Already Roberts has started booking events in the not finished building. The Home Expo, Business Expo, ballet, high school basketball championships and Wolverine basketball are all events that will be held in the arena. Music Concerts have not yet been booked because usually they don't book them six to ten weeks in advance but Event, Page 7 A dynamic year awaits Sheila Banister Editor-in-chief Another semester is here, and regardless to how good ot bad that may be, it's reality.
