Out-of-state tuition rates going up Out-of-state students will soon feel the inflation crunch more than ever, as a $15 per quarter tuition increase is put into effect. The Utah State Board of Regents approved the hike for Weber State College and three other colleges and universities. The hike would raise the total nonresident tuition and fees to $822 for Weber students. The board also approved student housing fee increases for three other institutions.The budget sessions of the 1974 Utah Legislature issued a mandate against raising fees for resident students. The Board of Regents met Tuesday at the Dixie College campus in St. George, where they heard Dr. David P. Gardner president of the University of Utah request a limit to the university's increase, because the hike would be prohibiting to some out-of-state students. The hike at the U of U was approved only through mid 1975. However, students there will have a $30 increase instead of a $15 increase. Any effect this action will have on enrollment in Utah colleges will not be felt until next fall quarter, when students will be returning from summer breaks. In other action, the board approved salary increases for all the state college and university presidents by $1500 annually.

Assembly reviews study; discusses quarterly stickers by Kevin Folkman The possibility of buying parking stickers on a quarterly rather than a yearly basis was discussed in the Academic Assembly meeting of March 26. Points were brought up both for and against the issue. The assembly discussed the possibility of obtaining office space for the individual assemblymen, and faculty evaluation during the hour meeting. Dave Allen, assemblyman from Social Sciences told the Assembly that he thought it would be advantageous to the other members if they could obtain office space in the schools that they represent. He said that he had been provided space for another reason but had used that space for his duties as assemblyman. He said it provided a central location for a mailbox for the members of his area assembly, and a place where he could coordinate with students and the area assembly. Provide space Academic Vice President Brent Johns, who chairs the assembly stated that he thought that each of the schools should provide some space or at least a mailbox in that schools' office. Dr. Dan Rhodes, advisor from the Academic Council, said that a formal resolution would carry more weight with the faculty and recommended that such action should be taken. Johns said that the resolution would be presented formally at the Assembly's next meeting. Von Moody, representative from Natural Sciences, brought up the question of having to pay for a parking permit on a quarterly basis rather than by yearly. He said that many students will attend school for one quarter, and not the next and still be required to pay for a whole year's privileges. Moody suggested that the students pay $2 per quarter and obtain a new sticker each quarter. Gary Carter, advisor to the assembly, stated that Weber does not require an excessive fee for parking as compared to other Utah schools or schools out of the state. He mentioned that UCLA charges $25 per year for parking permits there. Expense problem He also raised the problem of added expense of printing new stickers' each quarter. Moody pointed out that he doesn't have K ; 'A x - X v-r-. . ,'' that much space on his bumper. The assembly concluded the discussion, but) made no recommendations or took any action on the matter. Moody then brought up the topic of faculty evaluations. He said that the fall quarter evaluation had been successful but that improvements could be made. One of his suggestions was to complete one evaluation each quarter. Craig Brown, from Education, stated that the evaluations require a lot of paper work and expense and expressed doubts about having quarterly evaluations. Brent Johns concluded by saying that he would invite Dr. Storey to come to the assembly and explain the evaluations more so the assembly will have a better understanding of the work involved. He also mentioned that the evaluation was meant to be a course evaluation rather than a faculty evaluation. Gary Carter said that it would be a good idea to study .the evaluation program carefully, because two faculty members had used a favorable evaluation as an argument for higher pay.

|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.|
