Professor Alex Caldiero wore a gas mask and struck a large mortar shell with an animal bone, after which, students gathered in the student center to read the names aloud of every single soldier killed in Iraq to date. Student Noelle Madsen observed the procession making its way through the LA building, "I thought it was very respectful and helpful in keeping us mindful of what's "Nobody likes war. Nobody likes for people to die. But it is a part of our career sometimes." Captain Alexa O'Leary going on far away from us. When it's on the news it can pass us by. A physical, auditory reminder right in front of us makes it harder to ignore it. I think that's great." Another bystander approached the procession in a "threatening" manner, according to participants, and shouted expletives. Apparently, students participated in the event for different reasons. One student said he supported the Iraqi war but wanted to be a part of something memorializing the fallen American soldiers. Another student participant, Lucas Gallup, said, "I felt an anti-war element within the memorial. I hold the view that there is no need for these people to have died." But Professor Alex Caldiero said, "The fact that 2,000 U.S. soldiers have died is a fact. It's not pro-war. It's not anti-war. What we were doing was trying to prompt a moment of reflection for all those who came across us." "Some upon reflection," Caldiero continued, "will say, 'Yeah, our soldiers are brave and the price paid is worth the return.' Others will say, 'Yeah our soldiers are brave and their deaths are not acceptable.'" UVSC Professor of Military Science Captain Alexa O'Leary said, "Nobody likes war. Nobody likes for people to die.

Due to budget cuts across campus, courses are being cut. Some of these courses are those that students and faculty claim are the best for gaining practical experience. "The digital broadcast classes are almost purely hands-on," said Chad Clark, a junior in the multimedia department. Clark said he thinks students learn much faster this way, because the learning is directly linked to experience. Some of the classes to be cut are the digital broadcast class, which produces UVXNews, and some of the upper-division courses that broadcast events in athletics and humanities. "There are budget cuts across the whole campus because of lowered enrollment. There's less money to run the school," said Dennnis Lisonbee, assistant professor in the multimedia communication technology depart ment, "the dean looked at enrollments, and multimedia classes that have low enrollment will get cut." Dean Tom McFarland of the School of Computing, Technology and Engineering said that courses taken from the schedule were electives that wouldn't necessarily help students graduate. McFarland also emphasized that these courses would not be taken off the schedule forever, that they would still be part of the curriculum, just not offered in the spring. Students in the multimedia department are not the only ones being affected by this change. Currently, Communications 2700 and Communications 470R classes meet with the digital broadcast class to produce weekly news programs. "I think it's a huge blow for the communications department and this is one of the greatest things that we have that gets us close to the job market. From a student's perspective it hurts our education and keeps us from getting jobs," said Executive Producer of UVXNews Chad Hemelstrand. Students and Faculty are trying to keep the class on the schedule. McFarland said that if communications would pay for the course they could keep it on the schedule. "That's what we're working on right now," said Communications Department Chairman Philip Gordon, "I think we'll find a way to work that course." Disappointed students are afraid that they might have to gain experience somewhere other than UVSC. "The school is going to lose out," said Clark, "they're losing their best asset. Students that are working here are going to end up working somewhere else." Desi Homer, Student Government Representative for the School of CTE said, "We're still trying , to do things even though they're taking them away. We just won't be successful in the field without these experiences. I just don't think this will get us any closer to becoming a university." Emily Bitten News Writer Have you ever realized how much the media can affect the way that you think about your body? On Nov. 16, Dr. Nicole Hawkins, a doctor from the Center for Change eating disorder clinic in Orem, has been asked to speak at a workshop put on by the Wellness Education Department on campus. She will be speaking about "Media, False Advertising, and Body Image." The workshop will go into detail about how women compare themselves to the unrealistic images that the media portrays. Hawkins will show pictures and reveal how the media use computer air-bushing techniques to make models appear thinner. Melanie Sorensen, the Assistant Coordinator of the Wellness Education Department said, "Every student would benefit from this type of workshop. There are things that are said and shown in the workshop that are beneficial to all college students." Not only will eating disorders and body image be addressed, but issues of low self-esteem will be brought up also. At the workshop, Hawkins will also talk about the stresses of college life, the need to feel in control, and how it can lead to eating disorders. Sorensen also said, "If I had the money to pay people to go to this workshop, it would be worth it." This will be the third year that the Department of Wellness Education is coordinating the workshop.
