mm W tmJ ' UVSC goes online with UVNET Rich Asay News Editor Students from all over the state and beyond can access classes and software for their homework from the home or office. With a limited amount of computer equipment, and a phone line both teachers and students can communicate with UVNet. President Romesberg said the Governor does not want UVSC to build its way out of the population increase. With programs such as UVNet, students from all over the community and the world will have access to classes and programs on campus, without the need to attend the campus. International distribution for the Internet is still under planning and work. Students can access programs such as Lotus 1-2-3, and Wordperfect 6.1 by purchasing a Fee Card at open lab. They can also access the Internet, E-Mail, UseNet News, and the World Wide Web through the same service.Blocks of time can be purchased in 100, 150 or 250 hour time increments. The most anyone would pay for the time, is $0.30 per hour. The afford ability of the service was questioned and considered reasonable by those in attendance at the last Board of Trustees meeting. Along with the services already mentioned, the network will provide a variety student support services for the distance learning students. Students will be able to access library data bases, assessment testing to high school students and career path materials. Currently most of the high schools from the Provo, Nebo, Wasatch, North and South, Summit and Park City Districts participate. The UVSC internet home page is now on-line. Romesberg recently mentioned he had received calls from college presidents from around the country regarding the quality of the UVSC home page. The home page includes information about the school, class schedules, events, and student records. Members of the Board of Trustees seemed excited at the growth potential this offers to UVSC. The National Science Foundation awarded UVSC a 5 year grant to develop the network of computers throughout Utah. Future plans for the network are to include Boise State, and businesses such as Micron where workers can receive technical training and instruction from online services through UVSC as part of the developing Indusnet.

Since last Wednesday, Wal-Mart has had associates watching the lot for people with book bags parking and leaving towards the school. "We've had several students mad at us for asking them not to park here," said Matt Isabell, co-manager of Wal-Mart. Although students parking in the parking lot has caused problems, the management at Wal-Mart does not want to cut ties with UVSC. "We want to be a servant to the school without sacrificing our customers," said Isabell. Although they have not had to tow anyone yet, if the problem persists they will have no other alternative. Isabell and the management are open to the possibility of selling parking stickers to a limited number of students to park in their lot. Discussions are continuing on the subject, but no decisions have been made. Anyone who has tried to park on campus understands ing spaces can be at 8 With more than enrolled this fall, the spaces may not seem Steve Jackson, the Director for Parking and Transportation Services said, "we do have ample parking here on campus." At the busiest time of the day, there are still whole parking lots that are left open. Jackson said the parking problems can be attributed to the students desire to park close. While students circle the lots waiting to find the one person who might be leaving, they could have parked a little far- how rare park-a.m.14,000 students 35-3600 parking adequate. ther away and avoided the traffic problems.
