Blackboard Email Notifications

Receiving email notifications when something is changed on blackboard is a function I would like to see more of. 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. I would like to see all blackboard accounts do this because it is impossible to know if a change has been made unless the professor takes it upon themselves... more »

Swedish Students Club

I am half Swedish and half Armenian. I am already part of the Armenian ASA organization, but would like to see a Swedish organization, as I am much more culturally invested in Sweden and am fluent in the language. I would like to be able to maintain my Swedish speaking skills, and just be able to continue experiencing Swedish culture. I am considering starting a club if there are enough other Swedish students.

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?

Require Reservations for Group Study Spaces on 1st & 2nd Floor

The new group study areas are beautiful, but are not being utilized appropriately by some students. Too often I see it being used as an area for friends to just hangout or just one individual using a whole conference room for themselves. Part of this issue can be derived from not being required to reserve the room. Enabling the requirement of reservations will open up more group space to students who really need it. 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.

Adjust Course Offerings to Fit Students' Needs

Registering for the spring was just the most painstaking process ever. Maybe it was just my impression, but it seemed much worse than when I was registering for previous semesters. Many of my classes were not offered, and others just filled up completely before my registration period started. If these classes are prerequisites to other classes you are taking, this can seriously mess up your schedules in the following... more »

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 »

Boston Banners in Matthews Arena

Students know Matthews was the first home to the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins. How cool would it be to visually display banners in Matthews that detailed those Pro teams accomplishments while they played in Matthews Arena? Having championships listed on giant banners would help EVERY guest recognize the history that Matthews Arena has AND inspire NU students to achieve that same level of success!

New/Better Campus Activities

There needs to be more campus activities this year, utilizing Centennial. When I was a freshman in the fall of 2010, Chiddy Bang put on a concert in Centennial. This kind of stuff brings our school together. I think it was put on by the pike frat, but I am sure the school can figure something out. Outdoor concerts are the best. We have a quad. Those 2 things kind of work together. If not a concert, then a carnival or... more »

More ways for students to be creative & for clubs to advertise

Other schools like the University of Rochester don't let their wall space go to waste. Their tunnel system is filled with club advertisements and creative artwork (and even some not-so-creative artwork) that is painted directly onto the tunnel walls. How cool would it be if we were able to utilize our tunnels (or any other available space if ventilation is a problem) as a way of creative expression that anyone can be... more »
