As a result, SFRC members will have until Friday to reconsider each budget request before deliberations resume."There's some people that need to do a little bit more research so they can make an informed decision," said SFRC co-chair Tyler Lathem. "I hate just the idea of going forward when somebody may still have questions. I think we owe (it) to students that everybody (on the SFRC) make the absolute most informed argument and decision they can." During Friday's meeting, the SFRC did agree on preliminary allocations for each of the 14 departments and organizations requesting an increase. The preliminary allocation figures exceed the available budget surplus of $85,344 by about $7,000.

" 'L J '""' - Preparing for the future Career Services teaches students how to find jobs By Camille Safsten correspondent I The Signpost Career Services hosted numerous activities last week, and will continue this week with free career service as they help students prepare for the Career Fair on Wednesday, Feb. 10. While the Career Services Center offers services all year, the Career Fair is set up to encourage students to get prepared for their future in a 10-day span. Some events include a resume and interview workshop and a "Dress to Impress" fashion show. "The Career Fair started 25 years ago to get employers and students together," said Career Services Director Winn Stanger, who helped organize the activities. The economy has affected the Career Fair slightly, hi 2007, a record number of 125 employers visited the fair. "That has since fallen in half to about 60 employers, but they are some of the best because they supply many jobs for students," Stanger said. "We changed the marketing we do to be far greater than it's ever been. That allows employers to know we work to help students and inform them about the fair. This year we have 10 days of events, which is almost two-thirds more than before." Marketing included posters, fortune cookies and professionals from the Career Services Center talking one-on-one with students on campus. Jason Stark, a WSU junior majoring in engineering, found a fortune cookie in the Shepherd Union Building during his lunch break. "I was surprised to find an announcement for the Career Fair HIOIOBY BRYAN BUI IUIILLU IHLMM'UM Mark Jeppesen, staffing coordinator at South Davis Hospital teaches a resume & interviewing workshop on Thursday, Feb. 4. and not a real fortune," Stark said. "I was like, 'Oh man,' but whatever, maybe it is my future. Yeah, you never know what will come up in the future, and in about a year I'll really need a career so I should probably check it out." Danielle Snow, a freshman of general studies, works as a job recruiter herself as she helps underprivileged people find jobs. "I think the Career Fair is a good opening and opportunity for those tiiat have a hard time finding a job to look at lots of options, and for companies to recruit," Snow said. "The Career Fair happening during these harsh economic times bodi benefits and hurts students because people are not always hiring, but it helps students be their best to get those jobs." Almost all professions are represented at the fair, so that all students who attend will be able to make contact with a possible employer."I am worried that tiiere won't See Future page 5 Women's Center director awarded Merrill receives Athena Award for contribution in Ogden By Lindsay Robison news reporter I The Signpost OGDEN Weber State University Director of the Women's Center Carol E.

|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.|
