Regent member Ted Pitcher commended WSU for the amount of planning and work it has done to help with the growth ofthe university. The owner ofthe land agreed to sell the property to WSU for $9,000. There is no current timetable for when construction will begin. Norm Tarbox, vice president for administrative services at WSU, said the Davis campus and the Ogden campus are doing well, and the school is looking to better serve the West. "The western part of the valley is hard to get to and hard for a commute, so we've had a desire for quite some time to buy property out there to develop a satellite campus," Tarbox said. The university eventually would like to replace the West Center, located in a strip mall in Roy, with the Hooper campus. Tarbox said having a campus in Hooper would provide room for future growth for the school.

|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.|
