"An estimated 2-3,000 students will participate in the sessions this year," said Sharon Aiken-Wisniewski, coordinator of the Academic Advisement Center. 'This is the second year where the orientations have been required by the incoming freshman before they register, this way they have some guidance to the requirements needed," said Aiken-Wisniewski.Each of the schools in the college two days during the seminars schedule in which to focus exclusively on its own departments. Other days are reserved for undeclared majors, transfer, honor, nontraditional and athletic students. "Between 50 to 80 students will be attending each day," Aiken-Wisniewski said. "We feel that it is important for the new students to become familiar with various campus facilities." The seminars begin at 7:45 a.m. when the students are invited to visit with campus organizations which have information tables located in the ballroom.

Presidential applicants recommended Field for new Weber State president narrows to seven By Christine Rasmussen News editor of The Sgnpost The selection committee interviewing applicants for the position of the new Weber State College president submitted their recommendations to the Utah State Board of Regents July 5. According to Simone Fritz, a faculty representative for the selection committee, the Board of Regents received the names of seven candidates. The name of five candidates were to be turned into the Regents on July 1 , but due to the withdrawal of a candidate another set of interviews were scheduled. "I feel very comfortable with all of the candidates that were submitted," said Fritz. "I believe any one of them will do a great job of leading Weber State into the 1990s." Four of the seven candidates are from Utah, while the others are from out of state. "There are benefits for having a local person, but the out-of-staters offer a lot, too," Fritz said.

But the outsiders have had the opportunity to see other institutions of what other colleges and universities are doing." 'The college hopes to have the person who will be president in office before school starts," said Vice President of College Advancement William Loos. Fall quarter begins September 24.

|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.|
