This building is a symbol of unity, unity between the college and the community, he said. "That's what we all want it to be," said Dee. Dee described the building as a baby, with the college and community as its parents. It is "our responsibility to see that this infant lives a purposeful, useful life," the donor said. "This center belongs to you, treat her with the respect she rightfully deserves, " he said in closing.

|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.|
