  1. Where my diploma at? - David (and everybody else)

    I think that the registrar should send out the PDF diplomas to all the seniors that graduated in May.

    I understand that the registrar is busy, but here are some numbers to show that it's wild that we haven't gotten them yet:

    Days since May 10th, 2019: 122
    Minus weekends (36 days): 86
    Days if they took two weeks off: 76

    If you assume that there was only one person in the registrar's office taking care of absolutely everything, I'd say maybe we'd lose 40 DAYS (1,600 working hours) to working on registration. That would leave 36 days. I understand…

  2. Overfilling Classrooms Beyond Number of Seats/Fire Capacity

    For the past 3 years classes have been filled above fire capacity. If it was 1 or 2 students this would be fine, but I've been in classes with around 10 (or more) extra people in them. It's frustrating to pay thousands of dollars to not be even guaranteed a seat in class. You have to fight to get a seat, and this is happening in everything from large lectures to classes in COMPUTER LABS. Professors are letting countless students blue slip in because they don't want to block their graduation schedule (as they should), but there is no support…

  3. Parking permits should begin and end during the 1st week of classes (or on census day)

    The first order of business for returning students should NOT be renewing their parking permits. And students who are on campus over the summer should not be surprised on August 1st when they get a ticket for an expired permit. Get rid of the arbitrary August 1st date. Allow returning students to get settled and get funding for the semester straightened out before making them buy a parking permit.

  4. Make K-lot more connected/accessible

    It's bad enough when you get stuck out in the K-lot, but the walk to campus feels extra long because the athletic complex is fenced off and locked. Although the distance is not a big issue, it would feel more like you are actually parking on campus if you could walk through campus to get to class. Unlock the gates, or make a designed walking path.

  5. FRESHMAN HAVE COMMUTER PASSES AND NOW ALL LOTS ARE FULL BY 10 AM!!!

    I am beyond pissed about this. We already had shitty parking. You already took away a whole fucking lot for christ's sake. Now, somebody decided that the freshman should have access to commuter passes. This clearly was not well thought out. This new freshman class is one of the largest, and the fucking live on campus so they leave their fucking cars in the lot. HALF THE SPOTS ARE TAKEN BY THE TIME I GO TO BED AT NIGHT! What the fuck? Who the fuck do I start a jihad against. I didn't pay $130 to get parking tickets everyday.…

  6. CS should stop scheduling multiple 400-level courses at the same time.

    Currently, Computer Science has 3 different 400-level classes in the 12:30-1:45 T/Th slot: Operating Systems, Simulations, and Networks II. I (and a lot of other people I know) would like to take multiple of these courses. However, Networks II is a special topics, and Simulations is fall-only. That means that even if we put off Operating Systems, which is offered both semesters, we may never have the opportunity to take all of these classes.

    There are barely any CS classes offered on MWF. Why are we double- and triple-scheduling courses in this one time slot when we have almost every…

  7. Required recitations should be scheduled at the same time as the course time.

    Recitations generally are required and scheduled later in the afternoon compared to the course they are linked with. They should be instead scheduled at the exact same time as the course scheduled time as if it were a normal class day. This makes a lot of students who have extra curricular afternoon activities, or jobs miss out on the required recitations that are supposed to help them in the first place. I don't see why they can't match the times better or at least offer earlier recitations?

  8. Financial Aid Portal within Self Service is Impossible to Navigate

    When I log into Trailhead and head to the Self Service tab, I get frustrated so quickly. The anger is mainly centered around how difficult it is to use the Financial Aid portal within Self Service. It's ridiculously hard to navigate, and I often end up going in circles online when I'm looking for specific information. The interface is not user-friendly at all, and I usually give up and decide I need to set aside time to physically visit the Financial Aid office the next day. We pay so much money to the school; it shouldn't be this hard to…

  9. During the summer there's no need to force us to pay for a parking pass

    Pretty simple really. The only reason that it's ok to make people pay for parking passes during the school year is because there's too many people and not enough spots. I get it. But during the summer there's always, always, spots available. Why can I not park in a half empty parking lot at the school I give thousands of dollars to to begin with, without paying for yet another fee??? If every other spot is available, clearly there's no need to enforce a monetary restriction on the parking spots. You guys are clearly just looking for another reason to…

  10. Mines Student Directory ought to be made students-only, like many other universities.

    The Mines student directory is open to the public to search for names, majors, emails, and whatever else you have allowed through trailhead (but at minimum, your name and major). But you cannot be removed from the directory unless you also don't want to walk with your class at graduation, or get involved in anything that requires a confirmation of attendance. The only way to have your information removed from the public eye is for Mines to pretend like you don't exist, which can be detrimental for acquiring scholarships and jobs. Many other large universities require students to log into…

  12. Why is Mines still open today?

    Many school districts in the Denver area are closed due to a CREDIBLE threat to public and student safety. There is now an individual who is infatuated with the Columbine Shooting in Jeffco with a pump action shotgun and ammo, and we are the only school left open... At this point in the semester, I know many students feel they can’t afford to miss class, and many students will come to school regardless of how they feel about the situation. I feel like this is totally disregarding the safety of Mines students.

  13. A Good Lost and Found System

    Over my time here at mines I have lost my keys, wallet, and more clothing items than I can count. More often than not I have never been able to find them again because there is no cohesive lost and found system. If you lose something in a building you have to contact the building manager because each building has a different lost and found policy, but no building manager contact info is listed anywhere students can find it. You have to do this for every building your item could have been lost in, and if you lost something on…

  14. Free Beer Samples at the Carnival

    I know this may not be a big deal for everyone but in the past at carnival there have historically been free beer samples. As a freshly turned 21 year old I was looking forward to being able to partake at this EDays, but instead was told I have to pay for it. Granted, it was a good price, $5 for 3, but it was still disappointing. What happened?

  15. Mines Market Staff Needs to Throw Away Their Cigarette Butts

    Outside of the Weaver Towers and other areas are littered with cigarette butts, often times mere feet away from a trash can or cigarette receptical. The only people I see in those areas are Mines Market employees smoking cigarettes. Staff needs to quit littering our beautiful campus with cigarette butts.

  16. Votes should be reset more often

    If issues on What's Your Beef don't get resolved within a certain time frame, they should be returned to users. I often find myself having to go back through the things I have voted on to rescind votes from a year or more ago to be able to bring attention to current issues. If something hasn't gotten resolved in six months, it's probably never going to get resolved and impedes new and current issues from getting the support they deserve.

  17. MAC should choose artists that don't harass women

    When B.o.B. brought female students on stage and was grinding on them, I felt that it was extremely inappropriate. I feel that at the very least, MAC could choose artists capable of being respectful to the students of the school. I think that it is important to raise awareness of the issue of sexual harassment and for MAC to make choices that don't contribute to a culture that is accepting of such behavior.

  18. USG Deleting "What's Your Beef" Posts without Adressing Them

    A post was recently made here expressing student frustration at the slow pace the administration is taking to address serious student issues such as parking and mental health. It quickly received a lot of votes, but suddenly disappeared. Considering that there are several inappropriate and joke posts that have been here for ages, this seems suspect. If something about the post was deemed to be inappropriate, I understand, but that should have been voiced. Instead, the post was silently deleted.

    I can assure you, the post was not removed by USG through this account. It appears that it was marked as spam and removed by another user. We share the same concern for the deletion of the post. We will be looking into this more as well.

    Also, in regards to the last post, we have begun talks with administration in regards to the post and will keep students informed on our findings.

    We apologize for the deletion and will be looking into it immediately!

  20. "Meaningful Expansion" Unjustly Taking Precedence over Mental Health, Parking, Housing, & Classroom Sizes

    We believe PCJ and the Mines Administration's goal of "meaningful expansion" is being inappropriately prioritized above more pressing issues such as: mental health, classroom sizes, parking, and housing availability.

    We acknowledge the attempts at addressing these issues currently underway, but our point is that not enough effort nor focus is being dedicated. Instead of focusing on expanding the campus, PCJ and the Mines Administration must resolve these issues first. It is our right as students and human beings. See full essay (attached) for specific viewpoints and arguments.

    If you have connected with any or all of these points, join us…
