WSC moves to limit enrollment Cherilyn Kaiva Staff Reporter Limited enrollment at WSC is necessary since the budget is not increasing, said Dr. Emit Hansen, assistant vice-president for academic services. WSC administrators were pleased with autumn enrollment remaining virtually constant, increasing by only 1.4. Based on current enrollment figures, there will be a 58 increase in students by the year 1990. "It will be impossible to let all these students into college because of limited funding," said Steve Largent, WSC faculty senate member. He said it is imperative that we start preparing now for this increase. The WSC Ad Hoc Committee on Enrollment Growth presented a revised report on October 21, 1982 to the faculty senate to consider the trend of increasing enrollment. The committee suggested actions that may be taken by WSC to keep growth within the limits set by budgets, available faculty and staff and physical facilities. Two proposals were approved by the senate in May and have been implemented. The actions taken are: elimination of the distinction between day and evening students; and non-matriculated students being able to take up to 20 hours of work at Weber, which can be applied toward their graduation. Senate endorsement on two recommendations implemented over a year ago include stricter enforcement of existing policies having to do with academic probation and more rigorous grading practices, and expect the best performance from each student. Other proposals which will probably be approved by the Utah State Board of Regents are: requiring remedial courses for those lacking skills in certain areas, and assessing a special fee in addition to tuition for remedial courses. These students may not register for more than 12 hours except when granted by petition. Courses which require a heavy student-teacher interaction will be limited to a reasonable load of students. Also, if there is a greater demand than there is space or personnel in specific classes, each school shall devise some plan to rationally allocate space in critical courses. Another change Largent feels is necessary is for high schools to "get back to the basics" in getting students prepared for college. "There are too many students and not enough money," said Largent. He added that colleges are here to educate and not to complete basic high school training. The University of Utah and Brigham Young University have changed their admission policies and will begin implementing them in the fall of 1987. WSC needs to change its policy so it won't become the "dumping ground" for students not accepted by the other universities, Largent said. "Peepholes'' discovered in some women's restrooms Bill Conlon Managing Editor Campus police are investigating a report of what seem to be "peepholes" cut in the ceilings of a number of women's restrooms on campus. The investigation follows a complaint by a female staff member of the Stewart Library. The employee reported a "feeling of being watched" after noticing the suspicious holes in the ceiling tiles. A repair request has been filed with the maintenance department. Further investigation discovered holes in the ceilings of other women's restrooms on campus. While the first complaint was made about the restroom in the library reserve section, peepholes were also found in women's room ceilings in the Union building, notably the restroom across from the U.B. Ballroom and across from the Student Activity Center (the AS WSC offices.) There may be others. Access to the ceilings of the women's rooms in the U.B. was easily made through plumbing crawl spaces located in the adjacent men's rooms. The doors to the crawl spaces showed signs of forced entry, but, as one building custodian said, "Anyone with a building master key, or a 2300 series key, could get in." The building custodian, who requested anonymity, said he had "replaced those tiles a number of times, but someone keeps knocking holes in them. If I had a dime for every one I've replaced, I wouldn't need to work." Campus police officers Craig Dearden and Roger Johnson were sent to investigate the apparent peepholes, and expressed amazement that no one had notified Campus Security betoie this." They said a more detailed investigation would be undertaken. , t 'V y f Vs. . -v- - r ft Ju if J ' " ' - - 1 a-""' ' t.Mif,. , - lHHKirfll'll I'MU Hi Fans wrap themselves in plastic to endure the elements during Weber State's Homecoming victory over rival Idaho Photo by Rodney Wright State.

|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.|
