LAVAR ROCKWOOD, development coordinator for the New Orem campus, presents construction1 plans to the gathering of 'Utah s A precedent was set by Utah County Legislators to unite their efforts and support UTC's efforts to obtain money for the new Orem campus. Utah County legislators in the past have seldom united their efforts in the legislature. Advisory council officials called the meeting to seek advice from legislators on ways to obtain more money for the new campus. During the luncheon meeting with members of the College Advisory Council, legislators and candidates com-mited themselves to a two or three hour work session with school officials and advisory council members following the Officers slate open house An open house to welcome both new and old students back to UTC this quarter will be held Wednesday, Oct. 9, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the AS UTC offices according to AS UTC officials. The gathering is being sponsored by studentbody officers as an annual service to the students. "We want to meet the students and hear what they have to say" explained one studentbody officer.

It was pointed out that there will be little or no money available for capital improvements on higher education campuses. It was also noted that the UTC campus is not on this year's Board of Regents priority list. A sum of $8 million has been allocated from state funds to the campus. Interest on the money has amounted to nearly another million dollars.. Officials estimate that the money will build the business and auto trades building, install basic utilities on the site, and build the central heating plant. It was suggested that construction be underway before the next legislative session begins and that the legislators be provided with a priority list of buildings needed for the school. At the present time, the college is renting 40,000 feet of space to house auto trades and also renting 12 house trailers because of problems with overcrowding.People interested in the school's nursing program must pay their fees and be placed on a waiting list for one year because the demand is more than the college can meet. This problem exists in other programs at UTC too. Jack Higby, from the State Vocational Education Advisory Council, told legislators, "No area receives more verbal support from the state agencies than vocational education does."
