Finding the American Dream at UVSC Amber Pace News Editor Educational goals, and life time dreams are coming true for determined UVSC graduates, and current students. "The day 1 landed here in America, I was sitting in Miami on a stair case with ten dollars in my pocket, I knew then that I would succeed at something while I was here," said Feliciano Silva Filho, of Recife, Brazil. Soon after Filho and his wife, Rachael, delivered pizzas to earn tuition money in order for him to attend UVSC. Among other courses, Filho enrolled in a public relations class where he learned business skills and how to succeed. "I used the skills I learned in my PR class and started making contacts with small companies," said Filho. He learned to focus on clients, and to concentrate on good relationships in order to be successful. In January of 1992, Filho began a small vending machine operation. A few years later Snacks Forever is a flourishing company serving WordPerfect Corporation's International Headquarters and UVSC. Members of Fiho's family from Brazil are now in Utah helping with the business, totaling 6 employees, who serve 71 accounts. Filho said, "If I lost everything today, I could start over.. ..hard work is all it takes in America... here Bpaiifjj Bf ft mmWL Mm m mms ? -vs. mmm mm -x' there is a fairness." According to the Office of Institutional Research and Strategic Planning, more than 2,900 students participated in the fall survey, 74.2 percent said they work more than 10 hours a week. Fifty-six percent said they will need financial assistance while attending UVSC. Students from all over the world come to UVSC for many reasons such as location, reputation, programs, and tuition costs. However, 65 percent of the students come from Utah County. UVSC gives students the education they seek, and provides opportunities to attain their dreams. Nearly 70 percent of last years graduates, who responded to a survey, were satisfied with the relevance of training for their current jobs, that they gained at UVSC. Seventy percent of the students polled said they had attained the goals they set when beginning school at UVSC. See Dream, page 10 Romesburg chosen for 'Total Citizen' of the year Elizabeth Lane Editor in Chief UVSC President Kerry Romesburg has been setting unprecedented milestones since his arrival on campus in July of 1988, so when he was awarded the 1993 "Total Citizen" of the year it came as no surprise. The ProvoOrem Chamber of Commerce honored Romesburg with the award at its installation banquet last Wednesday, January 12. The yearly award is presented to a member of the community who has made a long-range contribution to the community. There are no requirements for the award and any one can receive this prestigious honor. Steve Densley, Presidentof the ProvoOrem Chamber of Commerce, commented, "We examine the community very carefully and identify a person who has made an outstanding performance in the community in a variety of ways. (Romesburg was particularly noted for the battle he has waged with the four year institution issue."Densley continued saying that Romesburg7 s innovative, two-tier education program at UVSC is not only a first in the nation, but an invaluable contribution to the area. The two-tier program Densley mentioned involves the unique program of retaining a community college atmosphere as well as offering a variety of four year degrees. In addition to the four year degrees offered through UVSC, students can earn their bachelor's See Romesburg, page 10 Legislature impacts UVSC Amber Pace News Editor Last year Gov. Mike Leavitt asked the system to "adopt internal efficiencies," to handle new students. In return he promised to offer more support this year. Leavitfs proposed budget now offers only 70 funding for new enrollment, at UVSC. This funding affects UVSC in many areas. With a 10 enrollment growth, costs are increasing on faculty, staff and facilities. With no money to fund service areas of the college, demands are rising on current employees. This pressure causes a lack in customer service. Not only a problem of more students, but mandatory costs are rising as well, such as power, fuel, and following the Americans with Disabilities Act. One bill facing legislation this year will be asking Utah to make professors' salaries public. If passed this bill could show that UVSC teachers' are being paid nearly 20 less than the same types of professors in other states. Higher education officials will be lobbying next week for more money based on higher enrollment expectations. Utah Tomorrow's Strategic Planning Committee has made recommendations that they hope will affect future legislation and spending. The committee focused most of their report on outcome, students being advanced based on competency instead of relying so heavily on credits. More than 4,000 new students are expected to flood the halls of Utah colleges, and universities next year. Currently Utah is holdinga load of 75,805 full-time students. Recommendations by the committee hope to allow access to post-secondary schools for all Utahns. They also want more emphasis on alternative education systems, including telecommunication. All colleges and universities will continue to provide public service programs and activities, as well as fostering effective partnerships with government and the private sector. The committee also hopes to have all non-resident tuition cover full education costs, plus more restrictive residency status requirements for undergraduates.Many other committee suggestions are in hopes of bettering education at UVSC and other Utah facilities, however possibilities of acceptance will be derided at the legislative session. After attending business related classes at UVSC Feliciano Filho has opened a flourishing vending machine company.
