  1. Add bridges over the crosswalk from east campus to main campus

    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.

    • I think CNU needs more parking spaces.

      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.

      • Open parking for all students

        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.

        • East Campus Parking Garage

          People driving in the middle of the lane or speeding through the tight corners are a real concern. Twice, because of drivers not slowing down during the curves, I have almost been hit. CNU should install reflective mirrors in the parking garage so drivers can see if other cars are approaching. Speed bumps would also discourage students from speeding down the ramps.

          • Cameras in the parking lot

            As of today all we have for security are police that patrol campus and the blue boxes randomly placed around campus. It has recently come to my attention that there are no cameras in our parking lots. Not only for the parking lots on main campus, but the ones on east campus as well. Since the parking lots are on the outskirts of campus,this is a huge safety concern. Especially for a campus in a not so great area like newport news. We pay a lot of money to go to this school and safety should never be an issue.

            • Could we update the CNU app's map with a "show green fences" option?

              I love this school, but even our seniors are sometimes baffled by these confounded contraptions. It wouldn't be hard to build a graphic overlay for the map, and I'm sure several of the comp. sci students would be happy to take it on.
