Template of Syllabuses for Academic Departments

The Psychology Department posts a template of all the syllabuses for each section of each course being offered each semester, on their website. It is really useful for pre-registration times and course planning in general. Northeastern should make this mandatory by having other departments follow suit. I do not see why other departments have not.

Improve Recycling in the Library

Anywhere there is a garbage can, there should be a recycling bin. The average student is unfortunately most likely not going to go hunt down a recycling bin when a garbage bin is closer. There are a few near the entrances to the floors but none throughout the rest of the floor. Also, if there are ANY on the first floor, I have yet to find them (besides the one in Argo). It's so simple but it can make a huge difference. ...more »

International Village Elevator Problem

Make use of idle computer screens

Use the idle computer screens around campus to show event-(and regular)-announcements as a screensaver. Similar to the slideshows on the screens everywhere. Groups would, ideally, be able to submit their event flyers to the system and get information out all over campus quite easily. I'm not on campus this semester, so I don't know if something like this is already in place, but the university I'm visiting does it ...more »

Sanitary Purell Dispensers in Marino

I still don’t know why we don’t have more purell dispensers around campus in general. Mostly every college, gym, hospital, public venue in general, etc. has this and I am not sure why Northeastern, particularly the gym, does not have hand sanitizers. It should also be put in places like the library and the Curry Student Center. Hopefully Northeastern will deem proper hand hygiene important enough to put in its budget ...more »
