WSC thespians fare well at Idaho festival Weber State College stole the show at the American College Theater Festival held in Coeur D'Alene, IdahoJan.-19-23. Approximately 30 WSC students and faculty participants traveled to the festival. Participants had the chance to attend a variety of workshops about every aspect of the theater, from writing a play to evaluating a performance. Weber's play "The Abdication" was chosen as one of only four to actually narticiDate in the festival. Although the play competition is conducted on a i regional level, "The Abdication" is vying with theater productions across the coun-' try for a slot in the national competition, to be held in Washington D.C.'s Kennedy Center in May. "The Abdication" cast, crew and director will have to wait until March, however, to learn of the final results of the competition. Therese Nelson, Signpost Entertainment Editor, took first place in the Critic's Award Contest. Because of her showing at the festival, Nelson's review will be sent to Washington D.C. for the national . contest in May. Weber also took top honors in the scene design competition. First place in the undergraduate division went to Robert Vaughan for his set design for "Heda Gabler." The second place prize was awarded to Randy Barker for his design for "St. Patrick's Day." How far does your fee money go? by Steve Largent If you are an average Weber State student (taking 12.7 hours or more per quarter and requiring 5.4 years to graduate) you will pay an average of $928 in student fees during your stay at WSC. The $928 is based on the current fee assessment of $58 per student per quarter. These amounts will be less for part-time students. Where does all this money go, and what does the student receive for it? Today, in the first of a two part series we will examine just where the student fee money is spent. By far the largest amount of the student fee money goes to the building fee which pays off the bonds that were borrowed to construct the buildings. The building fee totals 45.21 percent ($26.33) of the $58. The students are currently bonded through March 2014. The first bonds were issued in April of 1963 to build the first phase of the Union Building. The original bond amount was $765,000 and $416,000 of that amount remains to be paid. The date of final payment is set for March of 1996 on this bond. The second bond was also issued in April of 1963 to construct student housing (the dorms). This bond was for $1,600,000 and $1,120,000 remains to be paid. The final payment should be made in March of 2003. The students bonded themselves again in April of 1967 to construct the second phase of the Union Building. This required two bonds, one for $1,700,000 and the other for $500,000. On the two bonds, $1,385,000 remains to be paid on the first and $385,000 on the second. Both of these bonds are scheduled to be paid off in March of 2007. Also in April of 1967, plans were made to build Promontory Tower, another student housing unit. Only $1,545,000 remains from the original bond amount of $2,000,000 and it will be paid off in March of 2007. The final bond was taken in January 1975 in the amount of $3,900,000 to help construct the Dee Events Center. Of that amount, $3,805,000 remains to be paid, and it should be paid off by March 2014. Dr. Kay Evans, dean of student affairs, said that because Weber State is a fairly new college it was necessary to build many of the facilities that already existed and are probably paid off at older colleges and universities. It was partly due to the necessity of increasing the amount of student bonding to finance it, that the proposed student building was scuttled. It is estimated that student fees would have to have been increased by $15 per quarter to finance the building, and this was too high a figure for ASWSC President Bruce Richeson and others to accept.The next largest single amount of student fee money goes to help fund the athletic department. Full-time students pay 20.5 percent of their fees, or $11.92 each quarter, towards athletics. This money is used at the discretion of the athletic department. For this money, full-time students receive free admission to all home football and basketball games. For the student who enjoys these event., this is a real bargain. For example, if a student were to attend all of the home games during the present basketball season and pay the regular admission price of $5 per game, it would cost $80 for the season; but the full-time student only pays $11.92 per quarter and the basketball season covers parts of two quarters. Students will often receive free or reduced admission to other athletic events. Dr. Evans indicated that the student athletic fee charged at Weber State College is the lowest of cont'd on 2 What your Card you? i..i.iiii..i..lia mi m i.m 11 . 1 1 1 r- " does ' (J Activity W STUDENT d fr U)alldt COAJccJb j QOOO'OO-000 WEBER STATE COLLEGE j - - '

|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.|
