  1. Canceling sections to make classes larger?

    Mines is canceling sections making online classes larger than before as part of a COVID restructure. I thought online as bad as it was. What gives! Can teachers really not teach there original amount of classes?
    This leaves absolutely no hope for classes returning to campus in the fall. I feel like I'm paying for a much much lower quality education.

  2. Tuition and Fees refund???

    We are inquiring if anyone has received or been notified of any financial refunds for the previous semester (Spring 2020) due to Covid campus closing mid semester? In addition is there any financial discount for same tuition and fees anticipated for Fall 2020 semester due to virtual classes and restricted services? Like summer sessions mentioned below, it is unreasonable that there is no change in tuition and fees when the majority of campus and services is closed and/or unavailable.

  3. CSCI 101 In-Person for Fall 2020?

    I'm noticing several of our classes are being moved to online instruction, but not CSCI 101. In fact, it looks like accommodations are being made specifically so it can be in person, such as booking large rooms in the Green Center and Student Center. I was hoping for some clarification as to why this, of all classes, has been prioritized for in-person instruction, when it consists of lecture by powerpoint and python assignments.

  4. Online Tuition Unchanged

    Summer I classes are going to be online, and the school is not lowering the tuition. This seems unreasonable since we are not getting the same instruction and experiences that the Mines tuition usually covers. Remote learning is nowhere near as beneficial as in-person instruction. While Mines is doing the right thing by still offering classes online given the situation, they should do so fairly.
    The school should lower tuition for the online courses to more accurately cover the education we will be receiving.

  5. Make Existing Parking More Efficient

    Engineers like efficiency. So, while we're waiting for the new parking garage, here are some ideas to help with parking:

    1) Put lines on streets like Illinois to guide parking (like there are in CT Lot for the paid parking spots). This wouldn't cost a lot and would make parking more manageable.

    2) Don't charge faculty more for faculty parking spaces. Even at the worst parking hours, the faculty spaces in places like CT Lot aren't full. This would mean faculty would park in these empty spots, making more spots available for students and easier parking for all.

  6. New parking meters, bring back the 1/2 hour!

    When Mines put in the new parking meters this year, it had the option to pay by hours and minutes, so you could pay for 2 hours and 34 minutes for instance. Now, they've taken away that option so that you can only pay by the hour again. It's bad enough that we're screwed for parking availability and cost in the first place, why would they purposefully limit the meters to only hour intervals to rip us for more money? The least they could do is have half hour intervals. It is unjust that they would purposefully remove that feature…

  7. Sodexo

    Talking to many students here on campus I believe that Mines should look into a different food provider. I believe that it will not be easy and that Mines is probably in a contract with them. But after hearing many complains and not enjoying the food I believe that there is a strong support in possibly changing the food source. Or better options I sometimes see that they are making food for events and that looks very different from what is at Mines Market.

  10. Buildings with computer labs should have general blaster card access

    ... at least one door.
    It is notably inconvenient when leaving a building at night for a short beak and being locked out with my belongings still there. Given that a significant amount of students are awake past 7pm, allowing more accessibility would be widely beneficial.
    I have no research to back this up, but this ain’t no liberal arts college where we can afford to just frollick around for more than an hour.

  11. Get Ubuntu Computers on Campus

    Currently there are only Arch Linux OS for Linux-based OS. Ubuntu use to be in Chauvenet but they got rid of it. I can't complete a project because I need Ubuntu-based OS and not just Arch Linux

  12. Cancel School when the weather is dangerous

    As a commuter student I was barely able to get in to school today with the inclement weather and terrible roads, and I have a relatively easy commute compared to some others. Even after the roads parking lots on campus were an icy nightmare followed by sliding down sidewalks on the walk to class. If the administration cancelled class, or even gave a late start, we all could've avoided that purgatory

  13. What is the point of Trailhead?

    Seriously, what is the point of having a web "portal" if I have to log into EVERY. SINGLE. INDIVIDUAL. WEBSITE.?!? It would be interesting to calculate how much time is collectively lost by students and staff having to perform all of these redundant logins. When I use a web portal, I expect to only have to login ONCE and then have the portal carry my credentials over to whatever site I link to from the portal.

    Also, why is there no direct link to OrePrint on Trailhead?

  14. Meal Plans and Munch Money

    I think there should be an option to add Munch Money to your Blaster card. I don't want to purchase a full meal plan but munch money is incredibly convenient and could help speed up the lines in the Periodic Table.

  15. BlasterCard Access to Greek Houses Over Winter Break

    I have a HUGE problem with the plan to have Greek houses closed over winter break. It’s unrealistic to assume every student living in Greek housing will not be here over break, and for those of us who are planning to stay in Golden, are we supposed to just stay here and be homeless for a few weeks? The FSL Coordinator (and whoever else is in on this idea) cannot seriously expect any students staying in Golden to have another place to live for just a few weeks. I know a few students who will be working and several who…

  16. Most of the computer labs on campus are absolutely disgusting

    In my entire time at Mines, nearly every computer lab I have worked in has been very dirty. I think these computer labs, especially those in Alderson, need to be added to a cleaning schedule. If they already are on one, they need to be cleaned more frequently or someone needs to be in charge of making sure the cleaning gets done. With sickness already a massive problem students must deal with, the computers we are often required to be working on should not be as dirty as they are. I understand every computer lab isn't going to be spotless…

  17. Delay and Cancellation Timing Announcements

    Mines said that they would announce a delay or closure at 5:30 am. This would have benefited the rec center student employees as well as the swim team who all got up and came to campus and opened the building which then had to be closed five minutes later. There should be more accountability for Mines to actually stick to their word especially since this closure was due to road conditions that the people who drove on had to drive on again, thus risking their safety. Since campus is closed they do not have the option to stay in a…

  18. "Meaningful Snowdays" - Student safety should be paramount, PCJ and USG.

    I'd like to preface this message by mentioning that I don't even own a car, and yet it is still a danger for me to walk to school given the icy sidewalk conditions. Additionally, any commuting student from nearby municipalities such as Denver, Lakewood or Arvada are exposed to extreme risks because of the road conditions. With the recent homecoming event, I think it should be paramount that the faculty, USG and PCJ focus on the meaningful safety of their students. As much of a burden it is to cancel school or temporarily postpone campus, and as much as students…

  19. Rumors re: graduation schedule for next semester

    It is rumored that the graduation schedule will be changed next semester so some students would graduate on Thursday night, others on Friday, and all inside. We would be divided by majors. We started together, we should end together. Dividing for the sake of convenience for the school greatly takes away from the meaning of the day for us. Graduation is an incredibly important day that we have all worked towards TOGETHER, we should all be together in the end.
