Rethink Res Life Safety Checks and Regulations

It is not necessary to do safety checks on dorm rooms. Res Life staff will only be in each room for 5 seconds, and cannot look through drawers or anything not directly visible. Anyone with dorm contraband will just hide it, not remove it. Res Life knows this well- they say make sure prohibited items are "not visible" rather than "not present." What is the point of checking to see if students know how to hide things? ...more »

I know it is possible to set up a blackboard account so that it will automatically notify all students in the class when something is changed or uploaded.

Another ...more »

remote print macs

The remote printing must be fixed for students using Macs. The help desk has told me that the remote print software company has not updated itself for the newest version of IOS. This must be fixed or NU must choose a different remote print service because it is unacceptable for having the service to not work with Macs, which a majority of students have anyway.
