Dee Events Center cost goes up Up to $1 million may be needed The Dee Special Events Center will cost another $400,000 to $1 million dollars above the $8.8 million that have already been budgeted toward it according to administrative spokesmen. Dean Hurst, assistant to the president for college development said that the $8.8 million is to cover construction costs of the structure itself and that what's left over will go toward extras such as lighting and landscaping for the area around the events center. The extra $400,000 to $1 million wil go for "landscaping, the outside doll up, and lighting," according to Dr. James Foulger, financial vice president of WSC. Hurst added, "We anticipate the need to raise extra funds for the desired landscaping and specialty lighting." He said, "I don't know how much we're going to raise, we won't know how much until we get right down to it." One area in which corners have been cut in the construction of the building has been in the beams. The center wil be supported by wooden rather than steel beams. This move cut costs by about $1 million. Another concern in terms of costs was about the type of seats that will be installed in the Super Dee. Hurst said that there was speculation for some time that all of the seats in the center would have to be plastic to cut down on costs. It turned out however that there will be enough money for half of the seats in the special events center to be cushioned including those in the student center.The remaining 6000 seats, in the top part of the Super Dee will be entirely made of plastic. The recent increase in student fees has gone to pay for some of the increases in the cost of the Special Events Center. This year, a student committee will be functioning to insure student input into the events center that students are helping to build. INDEX What's happening, where?

I've paid enough! I think I should get an I.D. too." At the present time, night students carrying less than seven hours are not entitled to activity cards. Night and day students carrying more than seven hours are still not entitled to activity cards because they are not required to pay fees. According to Studentbody President Kyle Mattson, there are plans to change this. He said that Dr. Foulger, financial vice president of the college has suggested to student government that something be worked out allowing night students and part time day students to become members of the Associated Students of Weber State College. Becoming a member of the Associated Students entitles a student to all of the rights and privileges explained in the student constitution. A student with a full time I.D. card can get into athletic events, dances, and some Fine Arts Center presentations at a reduced rate. Presently, part time and night students are issued a regular WSC I.D.. but with a part time sticker. This ID. entitles Clear today, tomorrow and Thursday. Highs in the upper 60's and 70's.

Mattson said that he thinks the I.D. changes will be a good thing, in that it will keep these students "involved in the college atmosphere."One question that must be decided before any changes can take place is how much, if anything, students will have to pay extra for full I.D. card privileges. One possibility would be for the students to pay a standard fee, the same as day students do. Day students presently pay $47 in fees. Fee money goes for building maintenance, student government, construction, the student health center, and the special events center. Another solution would be to charge them on a pro-rated basis. This would mean charging students in accordance with the number of hours they are taking. An example of this would be to charge a student taking 3 hours $5. and a student taking 8 hours $10. Mattson added that Keith Wilkinson, student services vice president who is working on the project, would welcome any student input on the project.

|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.|
