Z I : ::'::;.!:.:.:: i ! s - s More and more students have been finding jobs since the Career Service Center has Signpost Staff Photo moved into the U.B. The display of job listings has received much attention of late. Relocation increases Career Services traffic by Joan Calvert The Career Service Center is already increasing contacts, said Jim Kelly, director of career services. The office was formerly located in the basement of the library. In the previous office there was not enough space to provide adequate services to students, said Kelly. An unnecessary strain was also being placed on the employees because of the close arrangements in the library office. The new office provides the additional space to give students the appropriate services needed, and the Union Building location places the Center in a better area of student traffic flow. "The Career Service Center can aid students from the day they arrive on campus until they become alumni. It is one of the very few comprehensive centers in the country," Kelly said. The Center also serves as a public relations tool to major businesses and industries across the nation, he said. A small, poorly equipped office tells recruiters what kind of priority Weber State College has on placing their students in jobs. Many recruiters never see anything else but the office. It is the center's employees responsibility to see that the recruiter's stay is made as pleasant as possible. The new office will aid in presenting a better image of the college. "Since the move, staff morale has increased, people aren't tripping over each other," said Kelly. 'They have enough space to do the work they were trained to do." "The Career Service Center is already increasing 50 percent in daily student contacts due to its new location in the Union Building," said Kelly. 8 tuition increase closer to reality The appropriations subcommittee on higher education recommended that the Utah state legislature hold the 1982-83 resident tuition increase to 8 percent during Wednesday's legislative session.The committee's recommendation, which will now go to the legislature for approval, also includes a 15 percent increase in non-resident tuition costs. Steve Largent, presently serving a legislative internship, said Weber State students should be prepared for more substantial tuition increases in the future. "Ten years ago, tuition payments amounted to about 25 percent of Weber State's total educational budget," Largent said. "As it stands now, with present budget allocations, tuition only pays 16.8 percent." Largent said the remainder of the budget must be supplied by state appropriations. The appropriations budget for higher education was cut state-wide by $1.5 million, about half the original cutback recommended by the executive appropriations commirteerThe-executive committee, which has final say on all subcommittee budget recommendations, had originally required that $3 million be cut from the budget. The $1.5 million figure originated from a compromise motion by Rep. Robert Garff. The subcommittee on higher education then reconvened to establish where the cuts should be .iade. Each school's appropriations were , cut at the same percentage. Weber State College's allocation cuts included $184,970 from the education and general fund and $910 from the educationally disadvantaged fund. The University of Utah suffering $567,480 in budget cuts, with Utah State receiving $363,570.

|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.|
