Senior Neivs Editor In the year of 1995, inflation has found another way to work its way in to the lives of all Americans. This year, as of the first of January, the price of stamps has increased by 3 cents to the 32 cents for all first class mail. Since 1975, stamp prices have increased every three to five years by at least four or five cents. This is the lowest increase since 1975. Until the new stamps arrive, a postage stamp marked with the American flag and the letter "G" will be available at all post offices and stamp machines. The letter stamns are ordered in bulk before the known price of the new stamps is released. This is to prevent from ordering all the stamps with the wrong amount on the front and then having to discard them. The stamps have gone in order beginning with "A" and have continued in this fashion with each increase. With each increase of postage stamps, the post office makes a profit in the first year and a half. Midway through the term of that price, the postal service breaks even and then they begin to lose money. It is then that they put in a request for an increase of postage prices. The process of the rate change begins when representatives from all postal services gather together and plan to raise the prices of mailing. The request is posted in the federal See STAMP, Page 4 I n trac i t rnpor Profession Services Airline Par E33j TelephLeSrrelateJolll J Mp) T J V Jy, ResideLl Km " S"'' k Gasoline Bf7 Coffee S Y J7.2 Cable 'WcvQmrfiQt- (9.5 Student housing to be built near campus Amber Pace Senior News Editor Ryan MillerThe College Times This vacant lot is the future location of a married student housing project that will be built to help UVSC's housing problem. The tenants of this 52 unit project will be within easy walking distance of the campus. Developers are making plans for a 5 building 52 unit married housing project on Jim Woomer's property at 550 South and 1200 West. The project is geared toward UVSC married students due to its location tenants will be able to walk or ride bikes to the college. There are only 21 married housing complexes in the ProvoOrem area with fallwinter rent prices ranging from $215 to $475 a month. Woomer, who was associated with the Lakewood housing project also near UVSC, has been looking at the lack of housing problem in Utah Valley for nearly three years. He also spoke with President Kerry Romesburg and has decided to head the new development. Woomer mentioned that in talking with Romesburg he learned that married housing is the number one priority and single student housing is the number two priority for a growing school such as UVSC. Woomer said the reason that developers are avoiding or having a hard time in the area is due to the fact that it isn't a high cash flow project. Amounts of rent that must be charged don't correlate with the costs of building such units. On December 13, Orem city Council voted 4-1 to allow a zoning change in the area. The zoning that Woomer asked for, a medium density f-h zone, is now in affect and will allow a maximum of 26 housing units per acre. Each apartment will have two bedrooms and one bathroom a total of 825 square feet. The City also approved the See STUDENT HOUSING, Page 6 Get acquainted with UVSC's student government Katie McKim News Editor For new students, and for some of the old, it is now time to get aquatinted with Student Government. Who are they? What do they do? And how can I get involved? The President, Shad Sorenson, is accompanied by Vice Presidents Ryan Howell and Terry Ann Harward. Howell is in charge of activities and Harward covers academics. There are 15 council members, 14 of which have an individual committee that amounts to about 100 Student Government members. Some of the presidents jobs include handling student fees, planning student activities, and addressing the concerns of students. Assistant to the President, Phil Clegg, stated "Our job is to keep the student voice heard," and that is what they are determined to do. The student government holds open meetings every Thursday from 1 p.m. until about 3 p.m. The main discussions during the meetings this semester are regarding student fees, and the departments' requests for funds. MembersofStudentGovernrnentarevery interested in getting input from the students. "We are here to serve the students, the door is always open. If you have questions, comments, complaints or advice, we'll take it all," said Sorenson. There are 8 suggestion boxes placed throughout the school. Replies to the suggestions are placed in the Student Center hall by the bookstore every week. Students involved in Student Govern ment are required to take political leadership, a political science class that is offered here at UVSC. The class fills an elective requirement, and is worth 2 college credits. The students must obtain a 2.5 GPA to remain a member.

"There are several positions and committees available," said Clegg, assistant to the president. Student elections will be held in March.
