Campus Boldering Cave/Rock Climbing Area

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.

More meal swipe deals

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

Northeastern used to have a bar in the Curry Student Center and they sell alcoholic beverages in the alumni center currently.

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 »

Marino View - Online system to view crowdedness of Marino

It's a hassle to go to the gym and find a huge crowd, and all the machines and weights in use. Link the swipe in system and the turnstyles to some online software that simply monitors the number of people that come in and out and displays these numbers in real-time. After a month of monitoring, number ranges can be assigned crowdedness level (such as light, moderate and high). This could be viewed on MyNeu, among the ...more »

#ERASEBLACKBOARD

Students HATE Blackboard. Instructors HATE Blackboard. Yet we invest a ton of money every year as part of the Software Licensing Agreement to use it. It is the biggest headache ever and the fact that a portion of our tuition is supporting this software that does absolutely nothing for my education is beyond crazy. Lets get NEU to stop using/investing in Blackboard and start using Coursekit. It is the simple way to manage ...more »
