Jensen has been the coordinator of Volunteer Services at UVSC for over a year now. During a meeting in August the Serving Utah Network (SUN) elected Jensen to serve as their chairman. Two and a half years ago the state office of Higher Education applied for a federal grant in order to begin a serving network. SUN is now a coalition of 1 1 Utah college and university campuses that are committed to addressing problems facing campus communities. From that grant UVSC was able to begin a Volunteer Services Office. "Now that we are up and running this institute, UVSC has taken us under their wing," said Jensen.

See ACROSS CAMPUS, Page 12 Road construction on State coming to end Sheila Banister News Editor There is some light at the end of the tunnel for those who frequently drive along State street in Orem. Completion of the construction is scheduled for November 15. A little over one mile of State street, between 1900 South and 1000 South, has been under major road construction since the beginning of May. The estimated cost of the project is just slightly under $4.3 million and funded by the general state construction fund Robert Westover, city project engineer, said the project was desperately needed because of major structural problems with the road. The road is now made out of cement. Westover said that, although the cost for concrete is more expensive than asphalt, in the long run it will cost less. This is because concrete has longer life. With the exceptions of a few minor maintenance repairs, the road should not need any construction over the next 30 years. Asphalt, on the other hand, would need major repairs within the next 10 to 15 years. Although there have not been any major delays or problems, several factors have caused the project to fall behind. The major micro burst storm at the beginning of June set concrete placement back a couple of weeks because of damage from the strong winds. There has also been major utility work done that has also caused a slow down in road work. Road crews are currently half-way through the project. Crews have been working seven days a week, 15 to 16 hours a day. However, despite crews' efforts to complete the project as quickly as possible, travel on this section of State Street can still be a complete See STATE, PAGE 13 - V Li " a3SX y .dm i m Ryan MillerThe College Times State Street will no longer cause students delay, as it is nearing completion. UVSC TV monitors relay information Michelle Chamberlain News Editor Last year, with the help of College Relations and Student Services, five 27 inch TV's were placed in various locations around the school. This has been a source in spreading information to a greater number of students because they are on daily between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. Val Peterson of College Relations, and Tom Hover of Student Services, gathered last year with other committee members during the college accreditation meetings, and discussed ways to spread communication and information in the college. They came up with installing several TV's and the idea has proved to be an important source of information for students and faculty. Thp TV'; are located at the entrance of the science building, in the trades building , by the information desk in the administration building, another near the student information desk in the student center, one by the big screen TV near the fish bowl computer lab, and one that has been in the cafeteria area for almost two years. The information on the televisions will display a roiling text of the upcoming events at the college "College Relations will be the office in charge of gathering and receiving the information ," stated Bob Rasmussen, assistant director of College Relations. He mentioned they are thinking about putting another information TV in the Auto Trades building, "They aren't properly wired out there and it will cost thousands of dollars to do so, but we have that in mind." Not only will general information be scrolled across the TV screen, but hosted segments, featuring interviews with students and faculty regarding upcoming and ongoing activities will also be aired. ee MUNI 1 una, r-cjye 1 1 The World Population is approximately 5.7 billion.
