Trustees shoot down hotel proposal Tyson Lex Wheatley Editor in Chief Last Thursday, January 12, President Kerry Romesburg addressed the possiblity of a hotel being built on campus to the UVSC Board of Trustees. The Board voted 6-1 to stop any further discussion and to reject any offer. "I was a little surprised at the strong feelings of the trustees," said Romesburg. The hotel proposal was only in its initial phase and Romesburg presented it to the board as a discussion item only. However, the board feel so strongly about not having a hotel on campus, they immediately voted to have it stricken from the master plan. The Missouri-based hotel developing company, John Q. Hammons Industries was the party interested in building an 8-story hotel and convention center on campus. The proposed site was directly West of the administration building where the school's ponds are located. At the meeting, board members discussed wether or not a hotel would 'fit-in' with an academic institution and took the problems of traffic, parking, the school's growth rate, how local residents would react, the architechture of the college and the view of the school into consideration. When the architect of UVSC, Bruce Jensen heard about the proposal, he actually wrote Romesburg a letter stating his concerns. "He said that our campus is a work of art and thought the hotel would destroy the award- winning architectual design of Orem Campus," Romesburg said. Student Body President, Shad Sorensen was the only trustee to vote not to strike the proposal off the masterplan. "I'm disapointed in the way the board voted, said Sorensen, "because it wasn't a vote to approve wether the hotel comes on campus or not. It was a vote to stop evaluating the possibilities of a hotel on campus." Sorensen said that he spoke with many business and hospitality students who were interested in the opportunities a hotel might bring them. The hotel would assist UVSC's hotel management and culinary arts programs by offereing internships and would become a resourse for foreign students seekingon-cam-See HOTEL Page 5 Students may no longer get financial aid Amber Pace Senior News Editor j wk ij n m BT M Tim During the 104 Congress in Washington DC. members will discuss specific proposals that may reduce or eliminate funding for student aid programs.

The focus of this celebration will be on the value of diversity in the community. The entire day will be dedicated to human rights. At 9 a.m. in the Student Center Theater the events of the day will begin. President Romesburg will start the day off with a welcoming address. Following Romesburg's address will be three speakers. Shirley Watkins, professor of ethnic diversity at the University of Utah, Betty Sawyer, the director of Black Affairs for Utah and Dr. Forrest Crawford, professor of philosophy in education from Weber State University, will be speaking. After the speakers everyone will divide up and go to different workshops to learn more about ethnic cuisine, dance, literature, music, etc. Dr. Chuck Foster, director of the UVSC Multi-Cultural Center stated "We are extremely lucky to have such distinguished guests on campus to speak about the importance of ethnic diversity in our community." The speakers are known state-wide for their knowledge and expertise on human rights. "The presence of these speakers speaks highly of the regard for UVSC in the community," said Foster. After the workshops are completed the focus will return to the Student Center Theater for more excellent speakers. Two of the speakers are former Iranian death row prisoners. Behrooze Ghenori, and Asada Rahmanzadeh will speak about their experiences in Persian prisons due to their politically dissident activities. Both men spent six years in Persian prisons known for their harsh physical abuse and torture of prisoners. Ghenori and Rahmanzadeh want to let others know how fortunate they are to be out of prison and in a much more comfortable situation. They also want to express their appreciation for, as well as promote, human rights. This is the first year that UVSC is holding such a large celebration. Human Rights Day has been observed at UVSC for many years, however, this is by far the largest celebration ever. Dr. Foster stated that "while this is an opportunity for instruction about serious matters, attendees can also expect to be entertained." There will be several presentations including gospel singers, and guest choirs. There is even a Polynesian group of BYU football players that will sing. The Human Rights celebration isco-sponsored by the High-College Partnership, the Multi-Cultural Center and the Minority Advisor Council. The program begins at 9 a.m. on January 18 and runs into the night. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy the biggest human rights celebration ever.
