Get rid of the "Luminis Platform" Pop-up

Whether you're on your own laptop or your professor is logged into myNEU in the classroom's computer, the "Luminis Platform" will pop-up unexpectedly and ask you if you want to stay logged in. This is very disruptive and unwelcome, especially when it comes when you're in the middle of class, work, etc. Please get rid of it. I don't remember this being around last year. But somehow this year... it's here?

International Village Elevator Problem

There have been some elevator issues going on in IV. Sometimes in IV East, the floor numbers that were pressed will all of a sudden switch off during the ride, after the first few people get out. The elevator then proceeds to go back down to the 1/F, forcing people to either stay in the elevator for the next ride, or get out and use a different elevator. There is also a specific elevator in IV West that will not go up... 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.

More upperclassmen scholarships

We need more UPPERCLASSMEN scholarships available to students. I always check on the department of financial aid's website and see numerous freshmen scholarships and scholarships for students of different heritages. Both of those are great, but there needs to be more aid available to help the students that are already here. Administration needs to focus less on selling itself to prospective students and giving the top... more »

Google chrome on campus computers

Have google chrome permanently installed on all campus computers. Most students have chrome as there default browser and most certainly use it more than internet explorer. When students have presentations in class using google docs on internet explorer there is often problems. I myself have had this. I think internet explorer is an outdated and poor browser that is not popular among students.

IV Printer Maintenance

The printer in IV is always out of paper. If it isn't out of paper, there is some kind of jam or swipe connection problem or toner problem or dead animal inside it that makes a noise when you try to print anything.

I know no one can really anticipate the technical/biological problems with that printer, but can we at least put it behind a proctor's station so that people don't take the paper out for their own printers?... more »

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 »

Get MyNEU to not suck with Google Chrome

Using Google Chrome, half the time I try to log in, I get redirected to a Web Page not available screen instead of a log in screen, whenever I try to click the blackboard link I have to log in again or refresh the page and I cannot even access NUPay. Being that Chrome has the #1 market share of all browsers and is probably used by 90% of collage students, It is ridiculous the MyNEU works so poorly. Make it better!
