"We want to encourage them to visit and get aquainted." President Brady also expressed his desire to hear students ideas as to the direction of the college and how they visualize WSC in the future. "The holiday season and the general attitude of friendship and love for our fellow human beings seemed to be a good time to inintiate what we hope will become an ongoing openness between the administration and the students at the college," he said. w eber has fall enrollment increase by WSC New Bureau In the face of an enrollment drop overall in the Utah System of Higher Education, Weber State College managed a small fall quarter increase, President Rodney H. Brady noted today. The figures are part of a comparison tabulation of 1977 and 1978 enrollments prepared for the use of the State Board of Regents. Weber State was the only one of the larger state institutions to show an increase. While the total headcount increase at WSC was 1.1 per cent, the University of Utah showed a 2.1 per cent" decrease and Utah State University a 2.2 per cent drop. Southern Utah State College in Cedar City was down by 4.6 per cent and Snow College had a 2.5 per cent decrease. On the basis of full time equivalent enrollments, WSC was up only .1 per cent, but the University of Utah was down 3.6 per cent and Utah State off 5.1 per cent. SUSC dropped 2.6 per cent in this category and Snow College 4.4 per cent. Combined figures for all the state institutions showed a total .4 per cent overall drop based on headcount, and 3.3 per cent drop in full time equivalent enrollments. Weber State made its gain largely in out of state enrollment, where a 36.7 per cent gain was noted based on fall quarter headcounts, and 39.8 per cent on the full time equivalent basis. Utah State was the major loser in nonresident enrollments, showing a 6.7 per cent drop in headcount figures and a 9.3 per cent loss on the basis of full time equivalents. Milton C. Mecham, dean of admissions and records, said the Weber State gain has been particularly gratifying in that the school had not been expecting to do more than hold even. He said that pessimism was based on national trends, which show general decreases in enrollments. Also, high school graduates in the area from which Weber State draws primarily were fewer last year. The WSC student body is made up principally of commuter-type students who come from nearby areas and are highly mobile. An increase in new freshmen was particularly pleasing in that it provides a base for the next four years, Mecham said. Another interesting aspect is that the school has an increase in the number of female students over last year. That may indicate, Mecham said, that more young women are making serious preparations for a work career in a nation which is seeing more and more women going into the job market. The increase in foreign students surprisingly was nol concentrated heavily in those from neighboring states.

|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.|
