  1. Green Water Fountains

    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.

    • CNU Should offer storage facilities for commuters during the day (like the lockers in the gym)

      I spoke to Dean Hughes about this. Just seeing if others agree.

      • Recycling on East Campus

        It is terribly concerning to me that there is not recycling for those living on East Campus. There is so much waste that could easily be avoided.

          • Washer Dryer

            I think the washer and dryer machine prices should be a little lower. I really don't have the cash to spend a whole 1.50$ each load.

            • Emails should be preference based

              There should be a digital preference system in which students can choose what they receive via email. Psych majors don’t need to know about the mathematics colloquium. York residents don’t need to know about Potomac parking.

                  • CNU needs to add Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) to our service.

                    While we have some religious channels within our guide, it would be nice to have the biggest name in Christian broadcasting on our list! Trinity Broadcasting Network offers numerous shows and preaching programs that are enjoyed by millions around the world. Having it at CNU would allow students to watch programs with Jentzen Franklin, John Hagee, and Joel Osteen. It would be a major blessing for those who are unable to attend a local church that meets their needs.
