The 3 swipe maximum at Outtakes for students on co-op with mealplans is very inconvenient; many students cannot find time to go to Outtakes multiple times a week due to spending so much time off campus and miss out on a service they have already paid for.
Organize events during finals where students can take a break to play with dogs to relieve stress, similar to other schools like Tufts, BU, Yale, and so on.

No one should have to face the terrible lines at the quick print stations in the library during lunch. It would be great to have quick print stations located in most, if not all buildings.
It would be nice not have to "call dibs on" or fight strangers for outlets around campus.
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.
Set up color printing stations around campus, where students can send their color prints to be printed (same as the black and white one we currently have, but in color). Pages could be 20 cents each to off set cost
Work with ZipCar and the University to place cars on campus for students who register with the program to use for commitments outside the Boston area such as co-op interviews.
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
