Tuition and fees on the rise Amber Pace News Editor Monday, March 14, 1994, during an executive session, the Board of Trustees at UVSC approved several policies, one of which was a 4 increase of student tuition costs. Doug Warner, Executive Director of Budgets, said the increase in tuition will happen only after the 15 credit hour level. Student Body President, Steve Hatch, and his council has requested a $4.60 student fee increase. This council will meet with the President's Council and discuss their proposed spending arrangements. "We just need to finish the paper work and submit the proposals to the different areas," Hatch said. Money is tentatively divided into the following areas: forty cents will transfer from building funds to the Union Building, $3 will be given to student activities, sixty cents will be given to the Theater Department based on a pending two year only agreement requiring the Department to charge a $1 admission for students with I.D. cards. The $4.60 fee increase has been approved; however, the placement of funds will go through negotiation with Ryan Thomas, Vice President for Student Services. Hatch also said they're hoping to have $1 go towards creating a Student Health Wellness Center. The Center will have minimal first aid and a nurse practitioner. Also, the current college psychologist and Drug and Alcohol Center will be relocated to be part of the new center. "Right now the location of the Center is just talk," Hatch said. Also approved in the Trustees Meeting was the 1993-94 work program amendment of $1 million. Warner described work programs as a way of legalizing the spending of state funds. "Higher institutions do get more tuition often because they have more students than what the state thinks they're going to get, " Warner said.

Team 4U' wins landslide election victory Tyson Lex Wheatley Staff Writer The final elections for student body goverment, held March 16-17, ended in a landslide victory for the Team 4U Party. Student Government President Elect, Shad Sorenson, Vice President of Academics, Terry Ann Harward and Vice president of Activities, Ryan Howell each received, on average, 829 of the 1,389 total votes (60 percent). "I am very excicited about the opportunity to serve as the student body president at UVSC," Sorenson said. "As a team, we will work hard to see that the needs of the students are met." While winning the election by a large margin proved to be rewarding; getting there was no easy task. All candidates put in countless hours of work through two grueling weeks of campaigning, which included passing out fliers, taUting with hundreds of students, making the primaries, interviews with the media and even an open-forum debate. "On many occasions," Harward said, "we were here campaigning from eight in the morning until eight at night." Don Jorgenson, Dan Nelson and Mike Pratt of the Red Party each finished as runners up in their respective categories, receiving, on average, 340 votes (24 percent). President Elect, Sorenson is a native from Oakley, Utah and a junior in the four-year Business Management program. "Our policy is to have an open-door. We want all students to feel comfortable in approaching us to inform us of their concerns and needs." Academics Vice President Elect, Harward is a Provo resident and mother of five.

Alan Peck for The College Times. Events Center ahead of schedule Amber Pace News Editor The Special Events Center is not only going up fast, but is ahead of the proposed finishing date. Big D Construction is the company building UVSC's new center. "We were glad to see them get the bid," said PresidentRomesburg. "We have worked with them in the past and they are doing a good job." Big D originally said they could complete the center by December 1995. Due to the warm winter weather they now hope to have it completed by August of this year. "They are so far ahead it is amazing," said Romesburg. Being ahead of schedule is the good news; on the other hand there is also bad news. There are still no seats included in this project. Romesburg hopes to do something about this problem within five or six months. "The problem is that seats for a building such as this have to be custom made and ordered . . . that takes time," said Romesburg. Funding is low, so the hoped-for food services area and the third floor hosting center won't contain much more than the basics. If the center is completed in August, it will hold very limited uses for UVSC students and community members. The 25 million dollar Events Center is being built in phases, but the finished product is hoped to serve the community and college members with catered conference rooms, food services and will add nearly 3,500 new parking spaces upon completion. The building itself took the place of one of the parking lots at UVSC; however, 26 acres of land by the freeway have been acquired and will serve students with additional parking and shuttle services.
