Brady that they won in the Emory University Invitational. Ticket Policy Revamped The ASWSC and the Dee Events Center have worked out a new student ticket policy for student seating at basketball games that should eliminate problems encountered in the past; The policy eliminates the selling and distribution of tickets in advance, which is a major change over previous years. There is still a reserved student area, but tickets will no longer be available until 5 p.m. on game day and will be distributed on a first-come first-served basis. It is hoped that this policy will encourage attendance at JV games which are held prior to varsity matches. Students will enter the DEC at gate four, where they will receive reserved tickets. Guests of students can also purchase tickets from gate four. Full time students are admitted free with an activity card, parttime students will be charged $2.50, and guests will pay $5. Group reservation tickets will be available to WSC registered organizations only. Reservation ar-ragements need to be made with the ASWSC office at least two days prior to the game, and tickets will be distributed at the DEC at the time of the game. Registered organizations can also apply for pit area tickets as a cheering group. The pit area will also be used for campus public relations, such as visiting recruits, high school officers and special guests. The Dee Events Center guarantees that no student seating will be sold to the general public unless a sellout of public seating occurs. Student body officers would then be called on to determine what tickets could be sold during the game. Series Concludes With Look at Student Regents by Lisa Wright-Largent Editor-in-Chief The State Board of Regents is one of the most powerful bodies regulating higher education in Utah. The policies that affect Utah's colleges and universities, such as budget limitations, tuition increases, the type of programs offered at each institution, are decided by the Regents. However, in all of the Regent's decisions, the students have a voice because one of the 17 Regents is a student. A student Regent is selected each year to represent student views, issues and concerns. He or she also acts the part of a full Regent. Mont Wright, a graduate student at Utah State University, is serving as student Regent this school year. The selection of the student Regent is quite a process. First, the school submits its nominations to the Council of Student Body Presidents. The Council then narrows the nominees to a field of three. These three are then interviewed by the state's governor and he or she makes the final selection. The Second of a Two-Part Series Wanted : Original Stories The Signpost is starting a new tradition for the Holidays -a chance to publish your original, previously unpublished Christmas story in the Signpost's special Christmas section on Nov. 29. There are a few guidelines to follow. The deadline for submission is Nov. 19 at 2 p.m., there is an 800 word limit, the story should have a Holiday theme and it must be original and unpublished.Turn in your submissions to Lisa Wright-Largent at the Signpost office, UB 276. Richard Southwick, last year's student Regent and a senior this year at Weber State, said that students seeking the positions must be well acquainted with student issues and the other issues concerning higher education. "From the perspective of the Council of Student Body Presidents, they want someone who is aware of issues and who will work well with the Council. . . .," Southwick said. "I think governor (Scott) Matheson, ... I don't presume to know exactly what he uses as his criteria, but I think (he uses) background in terms of student government, ability to handle issues and work with other Regents and just overall recommendations. I had recommendations from President (Rodney) Brady and Vice President (Robert) Smith. "A student who is unaware of the issues within higher education would not be a good candidate. Nor would someone, who more specifically, isn't aware of student issues," Southwick explained. There are two basic differences between the student Regent and the other 16 members of the Board. The student member is selected for only a one-year term. The other members of the Board (except the Lt. Gov.) are chosen for a six-year staggered term. Every two years one-third of the Regents are either reappointed or replaced. Regarding the one-year term for the student Regent, President Brady said, "My own personal feeling is that a one-year appointment is a bit brief in terms of gaining maximum effectiveness, because just about the time a student Regent really understands how things work, then that Regent is replaced and a new Regent comes aboard." However, Dr. Brady feels that if the student Regent appointment were to be changed to a two-year term not as many students would get the opportunity to serve on the Board. Dr. Brady also commented that a student Regent cannot be depended to still be in school for the second year of the term. To serve on the Board ". . . you ought to have a student who is somewhat mature. More often than not, that student is a senior or someone in graduate school . . . One can't always depend on that student being a student for more than one year. . . ." Southwick said that the limited time puts some pressure on the student Regent to learn the ropes quickly. "All of the other Regents have six years so see "Regents" on page 5.

|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.|
