TPS J a reer aavisemeni iorcea 3' - 0 to cut services by Kathy Kendell Gov't Affairs Reporter The peer advisement program run by the counseling center will not be eliminated. However, the program will be forced to cut services in light of ASWSC's denial of a $4,000 budget request.According to Dr. Richard Southwick, director of the counseling center, the center wants very much to continue the program but there will be a trade off in terms of quality of service. The peer advisement program was denied funding by ASWSC recently, as a result alternative funding must be found. "We will maintain this program but it will mean not giving the level of service we would like to," Southwick said. According to Julie Arbuckle, academic advisement coordinator, peer advisors may not be available during parts of the day or at night. "It's very likely that the hours of the service will be cut and we will not be able to hire the number of students necessary to do an adequate job," she said. The advisement program employs undergraduate students as academic counselors. The peer advisor helps enter ing freshmen or any other students who have questions about class schedules or certain classes. According to Southwick the program provides services to over 800 students a month. "We advise students on everything from how to pay fees to what classes are needed to fill general education requirements," Southwick said. Part of the program includes keeping very detailed records on students who use the service. "Everytime a student comes in we keep a record of what took place in the conference and what concerns the student had," said Arbuckle. "By keeping detailed records we can Hypnotist gives final convo The spring quarter convocation series will come to an end this Thursday with a hypnotizing finale.

The convo should prove to be very entertaining and it will begin at noon in the Browning Center. There is no charge and it is open to the public. serve students more effectively." Such effective service may be a thing of the past, however. Fewer hours, fewer advisors and less record keeping are some ways the office is going to cope with it's funding situation. "We also are considering setting up a program with each of the main schools on campus; they would provide us with some funding and potential peer advisors, said Southwick, "in return we would carry out the service with advisors from each of the schools working for us." "We will do whatever we have to in order to continue this program, we have to find funding somewhere." ijnp,!! photo K'.dhrv Wri'jhl Seagulls descended upon Aiman and Adria Arafat while they were listening to "Solar Rock" from their chaise longues.

|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.|
