Page 13 Page 10 News UVSC's Law Society hosts The ACLU Sports UVSC Spiker Kallunki: above the net Tri-semester waiting final approval Sheila Banister News Editor A proposal for a tri-semester, which would eliminate the May and Summer Terms, is in the consideration process for final approval.Talk of the change has been going on for several years, however, actual documentation, which has been compiled by the Faculty Senate, has not been done until recently. The proposal has already been passed in the Academic Calendar Committee and the Dean's Council and will soon be going to the President's council for their approval. If the trimester is approved, '95 Summer semester will begin on Monday, May 1 and end on Wednesday, August 16. '95 Fall semester will begin on Monday, August 28. There are benefits students and faculty will gain by adding a trimester. First of all, students will be able to take science and math classes, which many professors would n't teach because of the shortness of the terms. Because of the longer classes, curriculum can be taught more successfully. Students will also be able to take first and second block classes. In the past, there have been several problems with distributing financial aid awards. A trimester could eliminate those problems. Because May and Summer are split terms, paper work has to be monitored by hand, instead of with a computer. Denise Pino, financial aid advisor, said the trimester would be beneficial to both the ACROSS CAMPUS BLOOD DRIVE AT UVSC will be held September 13 and 14 in the Hall of Flags.

Department costs would be cut, there will be less hassle for students and possibly there will be more financial aid available. Scholarships are presently only available during fall and spring semesters. There are also setbacks to the proposal. Students and faculty will only have a weekend break between spring and summer semesters. This would also eliminate a May term which has been extremely successful in the past. Terry Harward, srudentbodyvice-president of Academics, said this may create a problem for the non-traditional students who prefer an intense month of classes opposed to three months of classes. See SUMMER, Page 2 Emergency procedures at UVSC Robbin Seegmiller Editor at Large When you enter a building at UVSC do you think about how you would get out if an emergency occurred? Do you look for the exits? Do you know where additional stairways are if the one you originally used is blocked by smoke or debris? Do you know how to reach assistance without using 911? These are some of the things you should think about when you enter any building. There is advice given in a red and white brochure that is posted in every department on campus. This brochure was issued by the Facilities Department and produced by the Public Safety Division in January of 1994. Because most students don't have access to these brochures these departments have suggested you take this few minutes to increase your awareness of the procedures for handling emergencies at UVSC. To obtain emergency assistance it is best to call the Utah Valley College Campus Police Department rather than 911 which connects you to the Orem City Police Department. By calling 222-8000 ext. 8187 or 8188 you will reach a dispatcher on campus who is very aware of how UVSC is designed. She can direct assistance to you more readily than an outside agency. She will also give accurate directions to other agencies if their assistance is warranted. In a power failure, the pay telephones can still be used. You can dial 91 1 without the use of a coin but the UVSC Police will not be aware See EMERGENCY, Page 5 UVSC students get 'high on life' Sheila Banister News Editor One of the many student support groups available is the Alcohol and Drug prevention ed uca tion center. Their purpose is to promote healthy life styles and encourage students to get "high on life." The center, which is currently located in BU 145, will be relocating to the new Wellness Center (SC 103) when it is complete some time in Sept. The center is funded by the state legislature from drug and alcohol prevention funds. In a survey taken in 1993, 81 percent of UVSC's student body reported is not currently drinking. Forty-four percent said they had never used alcohol, 90 percent said they were not using drugs, and 88 percent said they did not want to be at parties where drugs were available. Connie Kitchens, Wellness Education coordinator, said percentages of users is low here at UVSC and they want to keep it that way. There are several different kinds of support groups offered for students, including a smoking cessation program and a support group for recovering addicts. Kitchens said the support group started when a group of students requested the organization. Students can also utilize the growing resource center that is available in their offices. Once moved into the Wellness Center, several new services will be offered. Classes in stress management, substance abuse, and eliminating self-defeating behaviors will be offered. Several seminars and workshops are also available on such topics as sex education, and alcohol and other drugs. Another part of the Alcohol prevention services is See ALCOHOL PREVENTION, Page 3 Over Distances of up to 150 feet, an alligator can outrun a man.
