  3. I think we should stop allowing PLP students to have so many extra privileges. They pay less, because they take most of the scholarshps, while they have priority everything. They have taken multiple classes and better housing from me. Simply taking a few extra classes does not entitle you to be treated better than us. Also, many PLP kids I have talked to say that the Leadership minor is a joke.

  4. Don't make it so difficult to get permission to live off campus. Sophomores and up should have the choice.

  5. You know how in the Freeman Center, there are the water fountains that fill up water bottles? I think that is a fantastic idea. We can save so much plastic on this campus by encouraging students to fill up their water bottles in these easy to use fountains!
    If we install these in all the major areas of student traffic (DSU, Library, Residence Hall lobbyes, and at least one in each academic building, I think we can have huge impact on our consumption of resources.

  6. I've had to park at Harris teeter or Panera so many times after work because of lack of parking, and lack of convenient parking. I'm not saying I'm too lazy to walk from the far Warwick lot to JR, I'm just saying I think its unfair that people who live in Warwick have 2 huge lots right next to them, and JR has one tiny one.

  7. It's a pain to wait for the stop light, and as we know many students don't actually wait for the "walk" sign. So I think adding in pedestrian bridges over the crosswalk would be beneficial to everyone.

  8. I think it would be so beneficial if we started posting some nutrition facts as to what we're being served in the dining halls. Health is so important and we have the right to know what exactly we are putting in our bodies. We have these "calories count" signs on the drink machines. We should carry that same idea over to our dining halls.

  9. Because of the expansion we lost most of the study space in the library and we all know that the space open in the Freeman center won't be enough come midterms. Can we open at least one academic building late, if not 24 so that students can study?

  10. If you were to build a dining hall on east campus I believe more students would purchase dining plans and also if there were to be a second floor hang out area such as the crows nest or a east campus "starbucks" it could facilitate a growing community for upper class students who may otherwise withdraw from involvement.

  12. There currently are not any ice machines on campus unless the are for sports teams or in the dining halls. Student who like to put ice in their drinks would love this and you could also use this for students with injuries.

  13. Right now if you misplace your ID or it get's lost you have no choice but to pay $25. This price is unnecessary and unsafe. The average parking violation costs a student less than if their ID falls out of their pocket. As the pieces of plastic that the IDs are made from cost the university less than $5 each it seems unethical to charge more than $5 to get a card replaced.

  14. All students should be allowed to park anywhere on east campus or main campus without being ticketed. The parking decals are too expensive to be charged for parking on main campus or east campus without the right color sticker. We should be able to park wherever we want.

  15. We have s great lawn and a great campus! Now we even have a clock tower. It would be great to have a flagpole, specifically on the great lawn!

  17. the majority on people on East campus are over 21. If CNU is going to force us to live on campus all 4 years they shouldn't be so strick with their rules. East campus should have different, age appropriate rules.

  18. I suggest we put 2-3 racquetball courts in the freeman center. Racquetball is an excellent sport for cardio and exercise and could also be used to play Wallyball and handball as well as an extra place for yoga and dance. It would increase student morale.

  19. Can we please keep only fresh fruit in the dining halls? The syrup that the canned fruit is soaking in is so unhealthy.

  20. its stressful to have teachers make us do all sorts of homework and projects the last week of school and then have finals with no reading days before the 1st one. the school should always have at least one reading day before the 1st day of finals so students actually have time to study and not be smothered with work and go straight into finals testing.
