It is estimated that at least 2.000 students attend the campuses located in Park City, Heber, Mountain Land Applied Technology, Provo, Fire and Rescue Academy, Aviation, University Mall. Weber State University. North Valley, Spanish Fork and Orem High School. "These campuses are for students that might live too far away from the Orem campus and have an alternative place where they can go and take classes. We have everything from full out programs like the Fire and Rescue Academy to just classes at the mall where students can pick up a business class. At the Park City and Heber campuses students can get a full degree," said Carrie Ann Coomes, satellite representative for Student Government. Several of the campuses have classes taught via satellite through a live sight video program. "What is nice about the satellites is that we just turned away 2,000 students because of space constraints, if those students would have dug a little deeper they would have been able to find that they would have been able to find that they could have taken a lot of there G.E. classes at a satellite campus. A lot of these campuses are in the area, those students didn't have to be turned away," said Coomes. "We want students to be aware that this is an option for them and we also want them to be careful that when they are registering for a class and they don't want to leave the Orem campus, not to sign up for them," said Bob See SATELLITE, page 5 UNMASKED UVSC and several Japanese colleges are participating in a groundbreaking student an4jaculty exchange program UVSC President Kerry Romesburg and Dr. Ian Wilson, dean of the school of business, recently spent four days in Japan officially signing agreements with two Tokyo colleges to eliminate barriers and promote student and faculty exchange programs. Romesburg called the trip, "four days of solid meetings," which concluded three years of deliberation and evaluation that have made a groundbreaking program possible. Romesburg, along with presidents from Toyo Gauken and Jumunji colleges participated in the ceremonial signing that will allow Japanese exchange students to By Ryan Teeples of The College Times have UVSC credit transfer to the colleges in Tokyo. This eliminates barriers that have kept foreign students from studying in the states in years past. Most of the transferable credit is in core classes (English, Math and Science), however, certain specialized credits may also be transferable if the Japanese school has comparable curriculum. Jumunji. for instance, will allow international business classes iu uuusler to their business major. Additionally, if enough students participate in the exchange program, special classes for the foreign students could be developed. UVSC is prime for international student exchange for a number of reasons. First, UVSC has the desire to be interna-tionalijcd. Romesburg remarked that exchange student programs expose international students to American culture, and allow American students to learn about other cultures as well. Second.

"Untitled" (Horse Form), a sculpture by Richard Johnston, was removed under the direction of Vice President for College Relations and Administrative Services, Gilbert Cook. The sculpture was extracted a week before the Thanksgiving holiday in 1995. UVSC President Kerry Romesburg was out of the country at the time. The piece of work was selected to appear as part of an art show at the Salt Lake Art Center called "Making Waves." The show contains the works of art that have cre ated strong controversy in Utah. The UVSC piece is a major feature. Currently the work is in a heap of pieces in the corner of the art center. The exhibit opened on Oct. 17 and will run through Jan. 11, 1998. Last Wednesday, attorney Ron Yengich addressed issues concerning Johnston's sculpture and compared it to the film "Iron Horse." The film is a documentary about the illegal destruction of a work of public art on the University of Georgia campus. Yengich's speech is part of a series of "Art Talks" which address the issues involved in somg of the controversial pieces of art in Utah. A statement from UVSC was read at the address and it stated the following: "The untitled horse was not an unpopular work on campus. Students, faculty and administrators liked it or were indifferent, but there was never public outcry against the sculpture. Most of us were upset when it was removed and have been asking when it will be restored." The letter also told of what UVSC has done regarding the art work removal, the following is what has been done: 1. Administration immediately set aside funds to restore art work, available for use at anytime. 2. Faculty senate wrote a letter of apologysympathy. 3. Elaine Englehardt was appointed to a committee with members of the One Percent for Art committee and the Utah Arts Council. The committee met between six and eight times in Salt Lake City to discuss the censorship at UVSC specifically and censorship in Utah in general. The committee decided that UVSC should conduct a symposium on "Ethics and Art Censorship." 4. UVSC's administration agreed on the symposium. It was held on Oct. 24, 1996. Panelists were Dr. Aden Ross, See ART, page 5 WEEKEND WEATHER 54 24 49 20 HIGH LOW HIGH LOW Friday Saturday Continued blue skies, but Increasing storm clouds; odfcf very cold rights 54 21 HIGH LOW Sunday Snow possible inhijper elevations INSIDE 4 i Dig it After two gut-wrenching losses a week ago, UVSC's women's volleyball team dominated two division rivals in weekend action See page 10 QUOTE OF THE WEEK " " SSs Barbara Walters "All tlx inten ieu s u ill be my professional legacy, and my personal legacy are tlx people 1 lot e cmd tlx people u !x) lot e me.
