TRACE Evaluations for Coop Advisors

We have evaluations for teachers so why shouldn't we have evaluations for co-op advisors? These individuals are just as important, if not more so, in a Northeastern education.

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 »

Get rid of the "Luminis Platform" Pop-up

Whether you're on your own laptop or your professor is logged into myNEU in the classroom's computer, the "Luminis Platform" will pop-up unexpectedly and ask you if you want to stay logged in. This is very disruptive and unwelcome, especially when it comes when you're in the middle of class, work, etc. Please get rid of it. I don't remember this being around last year. But somehow this year... it's here?

International Village Elevator Problem

There have been some elevator issues going on in IV. Sometimes in IV East, the floor numbers that were pressed will all of a sudden switch off during the ride, after the first few people get out. The elevator then proceeds to go back down to the 1/F, forcing people to either stay in the elevator for the next ride, or get out and use a different elevator. There is also a specific elevator in IV West that will not go up ...more »

West Village Printers

Remote printers in the West Village area. Have a couple REMOTE printers in H, not just the standard printers. Put the printer outside the RA office or by a camera if safety is a concern. There needs to be more printers in the residence area of campus, specifically WV where a majority of students live.

remote print macs

The remote printing must be fixed for students using Macs. The help desk has told me that the remote print software company has not updated itself for the newest version of IOS. This must be fixed or NU must choose a different remote print service because it is unacceptable for having the service to not work with Macs, which a majority of students have anyway.

More Scanners in the Library or Elsewhere

The touch screen scanners in the library are great and user friendly. But could Northeastern invest in a few more of them to prevent the "waiting in line to scan" situation? Perhaps 2 or more in the library and 1 or 2 in Curry (since Curry now has some printers as well)?

Hot Water Accessibility in Library/Curry (for tea)

It would be nice to have a hot water spigot in the Library or in Curry (that is available for use 24/7) for those students who would prefer to bring tea from home instead of buying it from the expensive vendors.

More upperclassmen scholarships

We need more UPPERCLASSMEN scholarships available to students. I always check on the department of financial aid's website and see numerous freshmen scholarships and scholarships for students of different heritages. Both of those are great, but there needs to be more aid available to help the students that are already here. Administration needs to focus less on selling itself to prospective students and giving the top ...more »

Google chrome on campus computers

Have google chrome permanently installed on all campus computers. Most students have chrome as there default browser and most certainly use it more than internet explorer. When students have presentations in class using google docs on internet explorer there is often problems. I myself have had this. I think internet explorer is an outdated and poor browser that is not popular among students.

IV Printer Maintenance

The printer in IV is always out of paper. If it isn't out of paper, there is some kind of jam or swipe connection problem or toner problem or dead animal inside it that makes a noise when you try to print anything. I know no one can really anticipate the technical/biological problems with that printer, but can we at least put it behind a proctor's station so that people don't take the paper out for their own printers? ...more »
