Just in general I think more resources should be devoted to making NU more affordable rather than silly aesthetics projects. Do we really need expensive TVs just to display pictures of students or worse, pictures of random crap? (I'm looking at you, INV).
Improve the method by which guests are granted access to residence halls and increase the number of guests per resident in enhanced upperclass housing.
incorporate this site into MyNEU. I'd feel more empowered to submit my input if there were more than 81 registered users. Also- it's clearly not representative of an undergraduate body of 15,000.
Ban all smoking on campus. Wentworth has done it, resturants have done it. Students don't obey posted signs to do it away from doors and nobody enforces it. Simple solution then, Ban it, no smoking period.
Would there be any interest in a rock climbing wall or boldering cave on campus? Not only is it a great venue for exercise but going to a rock climbing facility in/near Boston tends to be expensive and time consuming so this addition to campus would be beneficial to many. It's just a manner of getting enough interest to go forward with this.
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!
Adding a redbox in curry student center, it would benefit students faculty and staff and bring in extra revenue to Northeastern
Create a more comprehensive recycling program where students would not have to struggle to dispose of their waste properly.
Make Northeastern more bicycle friendly. Add an air and tool station, increase the number of covered bicycle racks, allow registration of bicycles with NUPD to deter theft, work with local bike shops to provide discounts on helmets and locks, and donate abandoned bikes to Bikes not Bombs!
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.
Campus Bar & Grill. Other universities have bars and/or grills that are open late --and we should too.It keeps students close to campus especially on cold winter nights and the University could make some money off of it.
Northeastern used to have a bar in the Curry Student Center and they sell alcoholic beverages in the alumni center currently.
Add a wait-list function for adding classes. First come first serve for the most popular electives, and no constantly checking to see if a seat has opened up!
Picture yourself during finals week... Now remember all of those nights spent up until 4, 5 am and how hungry you get, but N O T H I N G is open. How hard would it be for Northeastern to leave Stetson East or IV open all night during these few weeks of the year? Other schools do it, and not just for finals.
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 »
It would be great to click a "Stay Signed In" button on the MyNEU log-in page so that I don't have to enter my information every time I visit the page. This isn't a huge problem, but it would make my life easier.
