Carrington says one of the major changes is one of philosophy. "People in the past asked for more than they needed, figuring their request would be cut. If they're realistic, it shouldn't be like that," he notes. Budget hearings in Internship COSTUMED IN authentic Indian clothing, a dancer helps celebrate 'American Indian Week.'

Under the Act, Weber State College students, past and present, may request in written form, copies of their own personal records the school has collected on them. Also, Weber is prohibited from releasing private information on any student without the individual's consent. Weber Must Comply Weber must comply with student's requests to view their personal records at no cost to the individual. If a student requests copies of his own records, a reasonable fee may be charged for the copies.

|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.|
