||The U Book serves to address the ongoing issue with low campus involvement attributed to the University of Utah's reputation of being a commuter campus. Although over 29,000 students attend the University, an overwhelming majority of students do not join student groups, attend school sponsored events, or participate in any other extracurricular activities. This indicates that students are missing out on the college experience which encompasses more than just attending classes but also interaction with the school's community of students, faculty, administration, and partners. As a project which began in the Fall of 2007, the U Book has developed into a resource available to all students to learn about opportunities and events that happen on campus. This year, the U Book underwent minor updates in response to feedback gained from students. Production of the second edition of U Book is on schedule to be available in early June before freshman orientation programs begin. Working in conjunction with the Orientation Office, orientation leaders will be distributing a free copy of the U Book to incoming students for the 2009 year. It is estimated that over 4,000 transfer and freshman students will be attending summer orientation programs. To enhance the services of U Book, a website will be constructed; to meet the needs of students who may have questions about activities and can obtain their information conveniently online.
