If they want a good broad education, that's fine. If they want vocational training for a job, that's fine too. But they should know what they're alter.1' Kelly explains. "We can help an individual see who he is, what he's got going for him, and how he must prepare for a career." The success of the center lies both in the scope of its activities and in the quality of the education provided by the college, according to Kelly. "We have the most comprehensive career planning placement center in the state. We have a good placement record because we have a good product. Students at Weber get good education and training, and employers know it," he says. "Within six months of graduation, 95 percent of Weber State graduates are placed. Some are not placed because they're unwilling to relocate." One of the tools for helping students is Cooperative Education, which Kelly calls a "Reality Testing Phase," "We can place students in jobs in the field directly related to their major.

"An institution which delegates the teaching of its students whenever possible to teaching assistants is clearly saying to the students that faculty research is more important than providing adequate growth and development for the individual student," he said, noting it is a "dangerous precedent," and "not reflective of the faculty of Weber State College."

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
