The signs will go outside entities on campus wherever student fees are being used, such as Campus Recreation, the Health Center and the Shepherd Union Building. The fees go to 28 organizations on campus, and the signs will go in the windows or the offices of all of these places. The senate is working with Jan Winniford, the vice president of student affairs, and her office on this project.

According to Sandra Martinson, the chair of Women Empowered, 175 women attended the ninth annual event. Shelly Hanson, a leadership development teacher at Hill Air Force Base, attended the event and said the conference was very inspiring. She said she hadn't attended the women's leadership conference before and received her ticket as a birthday present from Cindy George, one of the breakout session speakers. George spoke on recognizing opportunities and refreshing attitudes toward motivation. "I forget about the power that we really do have as women and we can do not singly, but together as a group," said Hanson, speaking about her first experience at the conference. "We compare ourselves to what we have been taught that leaders should be instead of embracing our own strengths as leaders. It may not look like what is in a textbook." Hanson also said that, after attending the conference, she wanted to become more involved with advocating group Women's Empowerment. She said the conference reminded her that synergy and dynamics happen at a group level.

Heat wave in Wattis Building By RaychelJohnson news editor I The Signpost Rather than cool air being pumped into the Wattis Business Building, a power outage on Sunday knocked out the building's compressor, and hot air filled the top floor. The rise in temperature caused two Weber State University students to pass out Monday morning, resulting in a call to the paramedics and a trip to the Health Center on campus. Jeff Steagall, dean of the Goddard School of Business and Economics, said the temperature of the building reached more than 90 degrees. He said WSU Facilities Management was responsive, coming over to address the problem before he even See Heat page 5 Winter right around the corner PHOTO BY WHITNEY YOUNG I THE SIGNPOST Snow fell Tuesday for the first time this season after rain on Monday and temperatures in the low 40s. Many students posted their thoughts about winter on social media during the storm (see column on Page 4). CIC to discuss name change By David Prete news reporter I The Signpost The Community Involvement Center at Weber State University might never be the same. A meeting will be held today at 2:30 p.m. in Room 320 of the Shepherd Union Building to discuss the possibility of renaming the center in order to better articulate its services. "The reason we're having a language conversation is because nationally, the words and language we use to describe what's happening have many different names," said Leah Murray, WSU political science and philosophy associate professor. "People are calling it civic engagement, public engagement, community involvement, service learning, base learning and public service. It's literally all over the map, even though we're trying to talk about the same thing." ''It's literally all over the map, even though we're trying to talk about the same thing/ // — Leah Murray WSU professor Since its establishment in June 2007, students have had the opportunity to serve their communities a combined 618,000 hours through the Communi- See CIC page 8 WSU business school named among best in the country By Laurie Reiner asst. news editor I The Signpost The Princeton Review has named the John B. Goddard School of Business and Economics one of the best business schools in the US. The Review conducted a survey of 19,000 students across the country, asking their opinions about the universities they attended. Students responded with answers about their experiences at their business schools. They were also asked questions about student life and academics in the survey. The list will include 296 names of business schools, but does not rank them. The list will be published in the 2013 Princeton Review guidebook. "It's a testament to the quality of work that we do," said Jeff Steagall, the dean of the college. "It's the quality of the interaction between students and faculty." Steagall said one of the reasons the college won was because it has small classes compared to the size of Weber State University. "The faculty spends extra time with (the students)," Steagall said. Steagall also said the teachers spend time to make sure advise stu dents and make sure they understand the subjects. He said the benefit of being on the list will be less local and more nationwide. "People already know about us around here," he said. "More people around the country will know." This is the sixth time the WSU business school has been featured in The Princeton Review. The school will have two pages in the Review, which will highlight specific aspects of the college, such as academics and admissions. Comment on this story at wsusignpost.com.

|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.|
