Also, reports on accreditation, approval of several requests for out-of-state travel by college officials, and authorization of new faculty and staff members were heard. College President, William P. Miller, said his enrollment report of a record 5,468 covered registration through Oct. 14. This is an increase of 22.6 per cent over the same period last year. An enrollment of 35.14 per cent in day school, a 26.9 per cent increase over the 2,769 day school students last fall was reported. And evening school registration shot up 15 per cent to 1,954. With 400 more freshmen this year than last, reported Dr. Miller, the freshman class now has 1,902 registered. Registration also shows 657 sophomores, 474 juniors, 34 off-campus day students, and 14 others doing graduate work. A seven-man accreditation team from the Northwest Association of Secondary and Higher Schools is arriving next week at the school and Dr., Miller reports WSC is well prepared. Confidence was expressed by Dr. Miller that Weber State will be fully accredited as a four-year institution when in early December, the committee makes its report at the annual meeting of the association in Reno, Nevada. The school's pper division work will be the committee's first concern. Frosh Elect Class Officers Weber State Freshmen elected their 1963-64 class officers last Friday in the Freshman election. Eddie Allen, a graduate of Ogden High School, was elected to the presidential position. Bruce Nilson, also an Ogden High School graduate, was victorious in thevice-presidential opening. Helen Carr, a Bountiful Highgraduate, was selected to fill the secretarial spot. In the Senate, Weber State Freshmen voted to be represented by Terry Hale and John Lowe, both graduates of Ogden High School. Representing the Freshman class, the largest class on campus, is not only an honor, but proves to be a big job. Congratulations and best wishes are extended by the student body to the newly elected Freshman class officers. '64 Seniors... All senior candidates for graduation in 1964 should fill out an application for graduation in the registrar's office. The WSC catalog states that seniors should make application for graduation sometime during the first six weeks of autumn quarter. Weber State College again moves into the limelight when a committee from the Higher Education Commission arrives this week to evaluate our upper division program. With the registration of the first Senior class at Weber State College this school may now become an accredited college if its program meets the standards set by the accrediting associations. Weber State College is a member of the Northwest Association of Secondary and Higher Schools. This is the organization that accredits all of the colleges and universities, both public and private, in the seven states of Idaho, Utah, Montana, OregcCn, Washington, and Alaska. The higher commis sion of this association, at the re quest of Weber State College, has appointed a committee headed by Mr. Claude Simpson from Washington State University to visit our campus on Oct. 23-24, 1963. During these two days the committee will visit faculty members, classes, the library, and interview students. The report of this committee will be made at the annual meeting of the association that will be held in Reno, Nevada during the first week in December, 1963. Following that meeting the findings of the committee will be made public. Weber College as a Junior College has been fully accredited since 1932. The most recent evaluation was in 1958. Following the visit of the committee at that time Weber was granted "unrestricted accreditation for a period of from five to ten years subject to such progress reports as may be requested." In 1958, Weber was a junior college and the accreditation at that time was for junior college graduates. An evaluation of the upper divi sion program could not take place until this year, 1963-64, when the first Senior class was enrolled. All of the colleges and universities in the country, both public and private, are accredited by one of the six regional accrediting associations. These associations were formed by the states on a voluntary basis many years ago. The purpose of accrediting is to determine minimum standards for institutions and evaluate institutions on the basis of these standards. An institution that is accredited is an institution that has met the standards of one of these regional accrediting associations. Individual institutions may determine the basis on which it accepts credit from any other institution, whether the institution is accredited or not, but it is common practice for each institution to accept all of the credit earned at an accredited one. mm 4 . w; 4 l4te!'vr 't- ?aif,fc'1?-j;iri m-iifi.iiiiii-iiiiiiiiM .i. -j -n . us-? i Rooms Under Way Progress on New Dorms Progressing on our campus unknown to most of the student body, are the new dormitories. The building will house 222 students at a cost of 1.6 million dollars. They should create a new source of cross pollination and introduce students from areas outside the Salt Lake-Ogden Complex. Also included in the package will be 72 men and 72 women assigned to home living units. Six students will share each unit and will manage their own housekeeping and cooking. The units should be ready for occupancy by the fall of 1964.

|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.|
