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 »
SGA shouldn't offer Sense of Senate on what vendors come to campus without a student referendum. Seriously. Stop playing God with what food/product we have access to and let me make the decision about what I support. I'm the consumer. SGA has no place in even offering their "sense" on issues like this.
put a kinkos on campus..... this is needed
Most newer classrooms now use whiteboards but majority of the older classrooms use blackboards. Its harder to see what's written on blackboards that haven't been clean in a while.
"Beginning in April 2012, the Husky Card Office will be changing the color and design of the Husky Card to better reflect the University’s commitment to excellence, distinctiveness, and innovation on a global scale." - NO, DON'T DO THIS. IT WOULD BE A POINTLESS CHANGE. PLUS, THE CURRENT DESIGN LOOKS A LOT NICER!!

My laptop doesn't even fit on the tabletop in lecture halls. It would be nice if there was larger table areas. Now a days technology is a must in the classroom and a lot of times you are using more than just your technology (etc. paper, notes...)
Most universities partner with Zipcar in a way that allows students 18-21 rent a car and the university will cover the insurance for those students.
There are currently no ways for students 18-21 to rent cars on campus for things like getting groceries or going on co-op interviews and it would make a huge difference for students needing transportation.
It would be nice not have to "call dibs on" or fight strangers for outlets around campus.
Has anyone ever experienced the annoying task of spending too much time looking for course? The current system is hard to look through and not user friendly. I want the 'Schedule of Classes' program to be reformed so that looking for classes is more stream lined and tailored to the individual. improvements should include - comments on the class and teacher right next to the course description - courses tailored to... more »
Books are great, but nowadays the library is being used for studying and a quiet getaway. Not many students use the stacks. I feel that putting more tables would be a better use of the space.
I have had the meal plan for four semesters now, and frankly the dining hall is a little tiring. I really enjoy the west end, always a great meal and counts as a swipe, along with Rebeccas. i would like to see more vendors like pizza hut, wendys, BHOP, Dangelos have meals that count as one meal swipe. This would greatly enhance student selection, and make the meal plan a better value and more attractive.
The printers in the library are always busy and the line is ridiculous when students are in a rush. and the printer in IV is always out of paper. Why dont we install a swipe and go printer in curry student center ground level at the information desk. The staff could refill the paper and students could quickly print instead of swiping into snell and waiting in those longs lines.
there are many students who studies during night, having microwave in library, they can bring food stuff from home, if they feel hungry they can microwave it in library. Microwave in CSC is available till 12pm. They can stay warm in lib rather searching for food in cold climate
Instead of swiping everywhere, how much easier would it be to tap? Like the T system, swiping into snell would be much easier if students could tap their IDs at the doors. Less traffic, more study time!
