Improve the method by which guests are granted access to residence halls and increase the number of guests per resident in enhanced upperclass housing.
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.
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!
Create a more comprehensive recycling program where students would not have to struggle to dispose of their waste properly.
Create and implement "Virtual Advising" so that all students can interact with their Academic Advisors whether they are in downtown Boston or downtown Shanghai through such tools as Skype.
Space in the library is almost impossible to come by during finals and the Alumni Reading Room is a semi-quiet place that takes up a lot of the first floor. Why not let students use it during finals (at least)?
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 »
Create a student led program in conjunction with administrators to help students of any major on campus to submit professionally presented artwork to be displayed on campus in buildings related to the artwork's focus.
West village A towers lableled north and south on glass outside proctor station would be helpful, for students not living in those buildings. It can be very confusing figuring out which one is north and which is south
Perhaps a seminar/class for professors and instructors on how to set up their computers in class? It's frustrating for them and students to fiddle with wires and the controls to utilize the technology they have bothered to pull together for our class. Maybe just one at the beginning of each semester?
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 »
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.
