  2. The email password change deadlines infallibly occur directly before major school holidays (i.e winter and spring break and summer vacation). If a student misses the deadline, contacting the correct person to reset a password is difficult and remembering a new password is annoying, especially when it isn't used very often which is often the case over school breaks. Please change email password change deadlines to a less inconvenient time and make it easier to reset passwords if one misses the deadline.

  3. With new students its hard for students to leave their home away from where they have always lived with a pet. With implementations such as signing a contact, paying a fee and abiding by rules and without abiding there will be consequences, dogs should be allowed in the dorms. I personally would love to have something more than a fish in my dorm for my since of protection and love and care away from home.

  4. Many students do not watch tv, have a tv in their room, or otherwise use this service. Nowadays tv is dying and college students watch Netflix if we have time. It is ridiculous to charge students for this service which students rarely use.

  5. There are what, five new channels? And you can't find any of them unless you pull up the email that was sent out originally. It makes things difficult for us BBC nerds. Also, we probably don't need thirty sports channels.

  6. 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.

  7. Put a Mosque on Campus.
    There is a chapel on campus for Christians even though there is a church down the street, a FIFTEEN MINUTE walk to be exact. However, there if no mosque on campus, yet the closest one is a THREE HOUR walk. To have a chapel and not a mosque on campus is unfair and discriminatory. I have always felt excluded because there were churches on every other street and mosques every 30 miles so I, as well as other students, would greatly appreciate a mosque on campus. We would feel more at home and welcomed at…

  9. Parking spots should be numbered and assigned so that students always have a parking spot. And students can chose their parking spot depending on when they purchase the parking pass

  10. Our windows on East Campus are letting in a ton of rain water from above and they won't lock. We need to invest in windows that keep water out, keep AC/heating in and lock for our safety. This is incredibly frustrating and has an easy solution.

  11. We could get speakers that would really interest us! At the very least CNU administration could present a list for us to choose from. Thanks!

  13. To Go boxes are compostable, but the packets of cutlery are all plastic, which takes centuries to biodegrade. Companies like Vegware produce things like forks, spoons, et cetera that are functionally identical to plastic ones, but are made from plant products and are biodegradable.

  14. We think that the Chick-Fil-a Express on campus in the DSU should definitely serve sweet tea like a normal Chick-fil-a. CNU is seriously lacking in good sweet tea and it is upsetting that we have to go off campus to get some quality sweet tea.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Eating the same food is getting boring! I think opening another coffee shop and some more side restaurants. Schools like JMU and Tech set up carts all over campus that sell food and accept Dining Dollars.

  18. Residence halls should have a laundry room in every floor, there are a lot of kids in these buildings only having laundry rooms on every other floor is just irritating

  20. 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.
