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.

It's so simple but it can make a huge difference. ...more »

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.
