"Presidential and vice presidential debates operate to legitimize the electoral process by allowing the people of the United States to gain information critical to the decision-making proce'ss for president, and thus has become an integral part of our democratic system," said team member Kevin Boyer.

Weber State College's Center for Science Education, through the Division of Continuing Education, is offering an AP (Advanced Place-. ment) biology lab program starting this fall quarter, 1984. The labs are held in room 425 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. each Thursday until Dec. 6. One AP course will be . offered each quarter: Botany 281-fall ' quarter; Microbiology 281-winter quarter; and Zoology 281-spring quarter. Students will receive three credit hours for the entire sequence (one hour per quarter)! The cost includes a $15 application fee, a $10 recording fee paid quarterly, and a $15 lab fee, also paid quarterly. "Basically, the reason for this program is that high school AP teachers are lacking the time needed for sufficient lab work," said Dean Travis. "This program is the first of its kind to be initiated in the nation and I am pleased with the enrollment already this fall." The School of Natural Sciences is in the process of renovating the second floor of the Science Lab. The rooms were previously used by the University of Utah Nursing Program, as well as by the Botany, Zoology, and Physics departments. These rooms were relocated to make effective used of their space. The renovation should be completed and ready for use some time in November. The University of Utah Baccalaureate Nursing program is now located in Annex 8, which is just west of the LDS Institute. The Science Lab will have a new Learning Resource Center. The center will contain an audiovisual equipment library, a departmental discipline library, a grant and contracts library, a reserve book and periodical library, a science education library and material center, a microcomputer laboratory, a Harris terminal laboratory, a quiet and tutorial study area, a testing center, and a full-time supervisor.According to Dean Travis, the renovation has cost approximately $11,000. The money for the renovation came from reserve funds allocated by Robert Smith, vice president of Academic Affairs, from Paul Butterfield, Director of Vocational Education, and from a discretionary fund. Dean Travis added that none of the money used came from state funds. by Loretta Park Staff Reporter The Education Department has hired five new faculty members this year and has added a new minor program of study.

|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.|
