Normally the parking lot has 475 spaces but this week workersareinstallinga fence at the northern end of the parking lot that will cut off a significant part of the lot. The fence will also enclose the area designated for the new student services building and the old communication building that will be excavated the first part of August. The bus stop will be moved to the south end of the parking lot so that UTA and WSU shuttle buses can more easily turn around after picking up and dropping off students, said Jim Cox, project coordinator.He said the fence will run south 132 or 133 spaces into the parking lot and west near the duck pond. "I'm glad we're getting it up now so we can get used to it before that first day of school, which is always hectic anyway," Cox said. A preconstruction meeting will be held Aug. 2 to discuss excavation date of the communication building and beginning construction dates of the student services building, said Robert Folsom, director of architectural and engineering services. "I would expect excavation will start shortly thereafter," he said. The new building is scheduled for completion in November 1995 and will cost about $11.7 million. siMlllilllis;; si Jii&sllS v ate. 17 Ipil s Looks like fun STEVE CONLIW THE SIGNPOST A different kind of contestant gazes longingly at the field at his partners in the Ogden Pioneer Days rodeo.

Administrative weight at WSU average Higher Education survey rates Weber State University with schools across nation By MARK FORSBERG SIGNPOST managing editor In a comparison of administrative expenses Weber State University spends equally or less than other universities of comparable size. WSU ranks lower in administrative dollars spent per full-time equivalent student (FTE) than Southern Utah University, although WSU maintains five vice presidents and 11 deans. SUU maintains five vice-presidents but only has six deans. According to the 1993-1994 Utah Higher Education Data Book, WSU spent about S616 administrative dollars per student while SUU spent about $792, a difference of $176 per student. Research-oriented institutions like the University of Utah and Utah State University had considerably higher expenditures per student, about $1,155 and $982 respectively.

"Keep in mind the separate functions of the schools," he said. Research and other studies require administration as well. He also said that about $300,000 of the University of Utah's $800,000 budget goes to the University's hospital and research facilities.Presently, the University of Utah has eight vice-presidents and 19 deans for about 27,000 students. USU has six vice-presidents and 11 deans, about the same was WSU's. However their ad-mi nistra ti ve expen-ditures per FTE are more than $350 greater than WSU's. Both schools ha ve about 1 6,000 students. In the study, Utahschools were also ranked against those in other states with similarstudent-bodies and mission statements. WSU wa s ra ted a ga i ns t schoo Is 1 i ke U ni-versi ty of Nevada and University of Southern Colorado. It ranked ninth inadministrativedollars per FTE. SUU ranked fourth. First was California State University of Dominguez Hills with $1,565. Indiana State University ranked 12th with $501. WSU recently created the new position of Community Partnership's vice president. Millner's job will focus on community pa rt nershi ps, a s speci f i ed in the mission statement. Robert Smith, WSU provost, said the new position has a lot to do with the mission statement. The vice president will focus on community relations, outreach programs and other community-related tasks, he said. Smith's present position was recently created as well.

|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.|
