This installment explains how student fees are allocated. by Loretta Park Ass't News EditorGov't Affairs Full-time (12-18 credit hours) student fees have increased $5 since the 1984-85 school year. They have doubled since 1972-73. Full-time students paid $71 a quarter this year in student fees. Part-time students paid less. There are approximately 10,000 students enrolled at Weber State. Due to a state law, "student fees cannot be raised at a higher percent than tuition, nor can it be at a considerably lower rate than tuition," said Toni Weight, acting dean of student affairs. There are eight areas student fees fund: Associated Students of Weber State College (ASWSC), convocations, instructional-related activities, the athletic department, the union building, the student health center, building bond fee, and the building refurbishment area. The legislature does not define these areas as part of the educational experience, so it expects these areas to be self-sufficient, Weight said. Student government has a lot of input across the board on how student fees are spent, according to Grant Protzman, ASWSC advisor. Students can either initiate a proposal, like the library fund, or they can react to requests from other groups. Serving on the committee that decides the budget allocation for organizations each school year are the dean of students, Protzman, the three ASWSC executive officers and four senators. After the committee has reviewed the budget requests, their decision is then voted on by the ASWSC senate. Then the budgets are taken to the administration, which generally accepts the proposal, Protzman said. "I think students need to know where their fees are spent," said J. Todd Anderson, ASWSC president. convocHTion $2 25 HSWSC ; inSTHUCTIOnHL RELATED I IBID BUILDING BONO WiMII iIUiiii li II V I ATMLfTICS 7, J V vV UNION V HEALTH CENTER Above figure shows the proportionate amount of student fee allocated to ASWSC, instructionally related and convocation budgets. Students usually pay their fees and are unaware of the benefits available to them. The ASWSC budget is decided a year in advance, and new officers are required to give their input. ASWSC receives $5.25 from each full-time student. This fee has decreased by $.40 since 1982. "ASWSC has kept their fee constant while expanding their services," Protzman said. The ASWSC portion is approximately eight percent of the total full-time student fee. The total amount budgeted for ASWSC this year is $229,495. Part of the budget, $16,995, will come from other areas and not student fees, according to Anderson, (see FEES on page 3) t & k Signpost photoScott Miller One on One WSC Coach Larry Farmer is consoling leading most of the game, Weber lost to the forward Curtis "Silk" Webster after Idaho State Bengals, 59-58 in the Mini Dome Webster's last second tip-in fell short. Despite in Pocatello. DJ's dismissed from KWCR by Emilie Bean News Editor Two disc jockeys from KWCR were arrested on charges of possession of paraphernalia, Jan. 23. They have been suspended from working at the station. The decision to dismiss the two was made by Randolph Scott, chair of the Department of Communication. Scott said, "... there are certain standards of behavior people are expected to conduct themselves to work at the radio station." He explained that people acting contrary to the standards set by KWCR, Weber State College, and the Utah Statutes would not be allowed to continue working for the station. "Gary Phillips and Brian Hill have been working very conscientiously to establish and maintain standards of conduct for KWCR staffers," said Scott. The two DJ's, though working for the station, were not currently enrolled at WSC. Scott said that it is his own philosophy that only students should be working there. Darnel Haney, associate dean of student affairs, said that he has no power over school employees. However, if the two disc jockeys wish to re-enter school as students, they will have to get his approval prior to registration. Haney also stated that Weber does not really have a drug abuse problem. In his eight years at WSC, there have been two similar instances. Rumors about the station and the conduct of the DJ's have been exaggerated, said Brian Hill, program manager for KWCR. Dene Fleming, the arresting officer, was asked to do a foot patrol around the station as a result of theft s last spring. One of the DJ's pled guilty to the charge and was fined a standard fee of $50. Charges were dropped against the other man.

|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.|
