All the campus emails should be condensed into one daily email and the quality of emails should be improved.44 votes
The Daily Blast premiered this semester and we think it turned out to be a great way to decrease the number of emails students and faculty received per day!
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 current desks in CO209 don't even fit a full sheet of paper on them. And this makes testing in there a nightmare! I will have had 8 tests in CO209 so far this semester as of Oct 31, and many more are to come. I as well as many other people that I have talked with are fed up with testing on desks that are the size of dinner plates. And as a room that hosts a large amount of the tests at Mines, it seems that the desks in 209 should be more adequate for testing purposes32 votes
UPDATE: Contact Laura Medley to get information about classroom committee: firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a classroom committee dedicated to providing funds for things like this. We don’t have the contact info for the committee head currently but we will find out who it is! Once we do they should be able to tell you how to apply to replace the desks in Coolbaugh.
if there is only room enough for 4 guests per person at graduation, then maybe we should use a bigger venue for future graduations.33 votes
USG has had a meeting with the administrator who plans graduation. Although we only get 4 guests per person, you are able to request extra tickets!
Last year everyone who requested extra tickets ended up getting them (except for someone who requested 16 tickets).
They have also created other options to make it easier for your friends and family to attend graduation. For graduation this May, there will be an extra section in Kafadar for ANYONE to come and watch, no tickets needed. The section will be on the other side of Kafadar. It will have a giant screen set up where ticketless guests may sit and watch the graduation happening on the other side of Kafadar.
I agree that 4 sounds like a few, but in past years it has almost always ended up working out.
There should be a better way for crossing 19th street from the Ford parking lot. Too many times have I been late to class just because I had to stand at the crosswalk for 20 minutes just to wait for a car to finally stop for me. With winter weather coming this becomes an increasingly important safety concern as well. I propose something in the way of either a button activated street light, or maybe just a crossing guard in the mornings and afternoon.53 votes
So this post is old, but we have new info! First, I believe a blinking light was put in to allow pedestrians to cross more easily, so hopefully that helped! However, part of the 6th and 19th crossing planning includes putting a roundabout at the 19th and Elm intersection. This won’t be in construction for another year or so but will probably cause some issues in the future. Just want to let you all know that USG voiced our concerns to the planning committee at the last meeting about 6th and 19th about the pedestrian crossing, but that is all we can do for now!
Open the side walk for non dismount zone, allow the bricks for pedestrians only.31 votes
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.
In the past the Slate had an Ice-Cream Machine or Soft Serve Machine. Could Slate get a new one?9 votes
The Freshman Class USG is currently looking into the logistics behind finding the funding for a new machine. We will update you with any new news we get. Thanks for being patient!
