Richards Hall

The Richards Hall classrooms need to be renovated. The seats are uncomfortable especially for classes that last 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Color Printing

Set up color printing stations around campus, where students can send their color prints to be printed (same as the black and white one we currently have, but in color). Pages could be 20 cents each to off set cost

More Quick Print Stations

No one should have to face the terrible lines at the quick print stations in the library during lunch. It would be great to have quick print stations located in most, if not all buildings.

TVs at Marino

Put TVs in useful places at Marino like the weight room or around the treadmills that actually show ESPN or anything entertaining at all. The only TVs in the workout areas are either showing intramural champions(nobody cares) and proper gym clothing/policies.

Put compost bins in the trash rooms of residence halls

As a freshman, my roommate and I collected compostable items in our room and hauled a smelly bag into the dining halls once every few days. I'll be unable to do that this year as I'm off meal plan. It would be extremely helpful if there was a compost collection bin in the trash rooms in addition to the recycling and trash areas. So much kitchen waste can be salvaged!

Helmets at Free Skate

There need to be helmets readily available for people to use at free skates at Matthews. I had to get transported to the hospital yesterday, which would not have happened had I been wearing a helmet. They have a lot of helmets for broomball, so why not let us use them for free skate? I feel uncomfortable going back to free skate without a helmet.

Get Actual Software Licenses Rather than MyApps

Other schools allow students to download actual versions of SPSS, Microsoft Office, MATLAB, etc... in normal application format. The MyAPPS virtual desktop client is inconvenient for students for many reasons. Many times the connection is slow and buggy. We also shouldn't have to be tied to an internet connection in order to get work done. If other schools can give their students direct access to the programs to download ...more »
