After looking in to this more we have found that this will never be a possibility. Sorry!
All freshman that are parked in Q lot should have to move their cars to the Jones lot and the remainder would have to park at the back of Q lot34 votes
The following is a portion of a recent campus-wide email was sent out from Anna Welscott:
“Policy changes will accompany the addition of the new lots, which will reduce the number of vehicles on campus. Based on feedback received through the series of campus meetings held this past fall, policy changes include limiting the number of vehicles authorized for freshman resident hall students through a waiver/lottery system of 200 permits, and restricting Mines Park residents from purchasing a General or Commuter permit. These policy changes will reduce the number of vehicles parking on the main campus by approximately 400, and will open up spaces for the students, faculty, and staff who commute to campus.”
With this, we conclude this issue as Freshman parking will face a different structure starting this semester.
Weekend breakfast should start the same time as a weekend (I get up early on the weekends and have to eat off campus). Also, dinner at slate should be served after 7:15 p.m. Eating dinner at 8 pm isn't unreasonable.18 votes
UPDATE: The hours at the new market in Elm are going to be open longer, available for money, munch money, and meal swipes.
Sodexo is currently thinking about extending the hours of the Slate Cafe during the weekdays, potentially until 9pm. However, if this was the decided course of action, Slate would be closed for a few hours during the day when there is minimal traffic-same with early weekends.
Any further opinions about this subject can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chris Pacher (Junior Class USG) plans to bring this up at the next Sodexo dining committee meeting. We will update you with any new news. Thanks for being patient!

The Computer Labs in Marquez Hall are used well into the night. The computer labs in the CTLM or the Library should be open later as well.21 votes
Tomorrow night at 7pm in ballrooms D&E, USG is having a council meeting with the Registrar. This would be a good meeting to come to to ask this question. We encourage you to attend.
The "What's Your Beef?" site is riddled with bugs. I have tried to vote for ideas, post comments, and use other features this site offers and the site either freezes up or blacks out. What the heck!3 votes
As far as we can tell, the bugs have been fixed and the website is functioning properly. Thank you!

In the past the Slate had an Ice-Cream Machine or Soft Serve Machine. Could Slate get a new one?9 votes

While IM sports get the south fields (the ones with lights), the club sports (you know, the ones that actually go out and represent Mines to the community) have to practice on the north fields. In the fall, it gets dark before 7. That really sucks when a team's practice time is from 6-8. It makes hard to have a reasonable amount of practice.4 votes
As of right now USG does not have the funding to help this and capital planning is so busy with the new buildings that this would not be a priority. Sorry there isn’t more that we can do!
One of our executive members has taken this project on. Currently, the issue would be funding as the equipment and the installation requires more funds than Club Sports and USG has to offer. However, other alternatives are being researched and we will get back to you. Thank you for being patient.
There should be a place(s) on campus where you can go and take a short nap or just relax and close your eyes for a little bit. Most of the students who live off campus don't live close enough to go home and nap if they only have an hour or so between their classes. There are many benefits to taking a short nap in the middle of the day, and at a school like Mines, time and sleep are very important.1 vote
There are a variety of couches and resting areas for those awkward intervals between classes. Thank you for your suggestion, though!
