Sports: America learns a new definition for 'football' UVSC sells Provo campus to BYU Robbin Seegmiller Editor at Large Due to the excessive price of bringing UVSC's Provo Campus up to current Utah State fire codes, the Board of Regents has approved sale of the buildings to Brigham Young University. When the buildings were initally constructed they met the fire codes that were established, but since 1950, when the first building was occupied by classes, the codes have become more strict and the buildings no longer comply with fire codes. The cam pus also fails to comply with the guidelines established by the Americans with Disabili ties Act. "It would cost 9 to 11 million dollars to make the corrections necessary to meet the codes," said Patrick Hayes, Associate Vice President for Facilities. 'In the end we wouldn't have the same quality of building as we would achieve by constructing a new one, and anything new we want on the Orem The most significant benefit of a phased occupancy agreement is the time allowance it gives UVSC to find . . .facilities to house the programs that are presently located on the Provo campus.

The campus is be ing sold to BYU on a phased occupancy agreement which will allow them to occupy a portion of the building this fall using it for storage space.

The wellness center will be built in the student center, where the Outpost is currently located, and will include either a nurse practitioner or physician assistant to provide the medical services for students with minor injuries or illnesses. "This wellness center has been a need on campus for a number of years, said Tom Hover, dean of student life, "I think its going to be well used and well accepted and the space better utilized."

Not only did the chapter induct a record-high 168 new members this spring, it was honored with numerous awards at a regional conference in Oregon, including the five-star chapter award. Criteria for this award includes meetings, publishing a newsletter, and sponsoring regular scholastic and service activities, things that were accomplished through what Michael Falgoust, advisor of the UVSC chapter, calls "the relentless dedication and leadership of the student officers." UVSC student Elder Sanchez received the Personal Hallmark Award, based on his contribution of service in the community, outstanding performance in his field of study, environmental technology, and dedication to the ideals of Phi Theta Kappa. "I feel very proud of what I have accomplished as a UVSC student;" said Sanchez, "it required commitment, very hard work and a lot of time." Sanchez, a native of Honduras, came to UVSC two years ago, knowing only a handful of English words. After taking ESL(English as a second language) courses, Elder was inducted to FTK, where he served as historian and newsletter editor, was elected President of the Environmental club and received enough college credit to graduate this summer(AAS Environmental Tech.), all while mamtaining a 4.0 GPA. "I was honored and excited for Elder," says Falgoust, "he's been one of the most dedicated officers we've ever had." Another UVSC student, Kent Curtis, Phi Theta Kappavice-president, was elected regional vice-president. Curtis plans to go into occupational therapy. Falgoust was also awarded at the conference. He was recognized as best advisor in the region for the second time. This recognition comes after recently receiving the Giles Distinguished Ad visor Award, given to only the top 15 advisors, internationally, in over 1,000 chapters. Falgoust was honored in his first year of eligibility. See HONOR SOCIETY, Page 9 xit uiv; vjiiriivJiA States emMiir TV MSMtm I If L Source: "Harpers Index"
