  1. Q lot is now General Parking (but no new Commuter parking!)

    Changing the Q lot to General Parking makes no sense unless the objective is to force more people to buy more expensive General Parking permits. Commuter lots are already full during peak hours (see "Stop giving commuter pass holders parking tickets..."). General parking permit holders can park in commuter lots if General parking is full, but now it is assured that Commuter pass holders will be forced to the K lot or off campus.

    CHANGE IT BACK until the parking garage is finished, or tell us where to park when everything is full.

    • Mines Park Noise from US-6 Rumble Strips

      City of Golden (CG) completed the US-6 and 19th intersection around the beginning of Fall 2017. When summer hit and we had to open our windows (no ac in our unit) we've realized that the rumble strips were creating excessive noise. Causing us to lose sleep in the night and forcing us to choose between living in a very hot or a very noisy unit in the morning.
      We've contacted CG and CDOT at the beginning of Fall 2018 so the issue can be remedied before summer. Apparently other residents in the area were suffering from the noise as well.…

      • Mines Needs to Improve Commuter Parking

        I know I'm not the only person to complain about parking at mines, but it is absolutely a joke. This morning I pulled into the A/AA parking lot with what I thought was plenty of time to find a spot and walk to class. However, I circled the entire lot with several cars behind me and I could not find a single spot. I drove to the other commuter lot, and over to the football field to try and find parking and I couldn't find anything.I eventually jut gave up and parked in downtown Golden. It's ridiculous to charge students…

        • Fix our parking issues with a shuttle system, redesigning the current parking lots, more bike racks, or ANYTHING really

          Parking is a huge issue for this campus. Whether you have a general or a commuter, you can never find parking and all of the lots are being taken away by new construction. I know of many students who have been absurdly late to classes because of this and I have experienced the same.

          My personal experience today was the most frustrating I have experienced this far. I am a graduate student teaching a class on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11 am. Parking is an issue every week... and this week I tried to prepare for that. I arrived to…

          • AP/IB classes should count HASS/LAIS/EBGN elective credit

            I do not understand why liberal arts AP/IB tests only count as free elective credits. There are so many HASS/EBGN elective credit hours required to graduate, and many AP/IB classes are parallel to the liberal arts electives provided here. Why wouldn't a 4 or a 5 on AP (or a 5-7 on IB) tests for classes like the following count?

            ~ English Literature and Composition
            ~ English Language and Composition
            ~ Macroeconomics (yes, this can count for EBGN 201, but only if you have received a 4 or a 5 on both this and Microeconomics)
            ~ Microeconomics (see above)
            ~…

            • Janitor walking on me

              Maple Hall resident here. I've had a reoccurring issue with the janitorial staff. I know we are given a time frame for when the janitors are going to clean the bathrooms; however, this time frame is unreasonably large. I feel this way, for multiple times this semester I have been walked in on while pleasuring myself. Granted sometimes they knock, if this weren't the case the number of times would be well in the double digits. I'm just asking for a more specific time frame so I can plan my free time around it. Thanks!

              • Homework Platforms

                Stop making us pay for individuals pay 65$ for each course to do our homework. I am willing to do all of the hard work but $180 dollars to do my homework, on two different platforms which suck (I have had to go to customer service once for Sapling and twice for Pearson with which I spent 2 hours on hold total). They dont work and the campus obviously doesn't care about low income students who never got the opportunity of a scholarship. I work just as hard but I shouldn't fail a course because I can't afford to pay…

                • I'm having a hard time...

                  I have a solid 10 minutes in between classes in CK, and need a quiet spot to jerk off in between my classes. Any good suggestions??? i though a gender neutral bathroom would be a good idea to allow us all the stroke it out at the stressful moments in the day.

                  • Elm Street Angled Parking

                    Elm Street appears to be wide enough for angled parking on a section of it which would add spots to campus. The road changes width, and in the wider spot (the yellow box) parking could be angled without decreasing the width of the road (the red line).

                    • Parking AGAIN.

                      So today I got to campus at 6 am for work and of course found a great commuter spot right outside the sorority houses next to the stairs. When I tried to leave campus to eat lunch, I couldn't leave because someone parked about an inch behind me (IT'S NOT EVEN A SPOT). This is not an exaggeration all the way walking up to my car I thought someone had hit it because they were so close. The car in front of me was about a foot away. This was reasonable but with the car behind me there was no…

                          If you've ever wanted to sync info between devices and other such things, such as saved passwords and bookmarks, the settings in the administrative G-suite that mines uses to create google accounts with mines emails does not allow it.

                          • There are not enough HASS classes for students to meet the requirement

                            Mines requires 3 humanities classes, but halfway through the second day of registration every single class other than NHV and Global Studies is full. How are students supposed to meet this requirement if only a handful of classes are offered with 30 seats each?

                            • Eliminating E Lot Without Additional Parking Available?!

                              Tomorrow Mines is closing off E lot in order to build a new residence hall, yet they have no additional parking to compensate for all the lost spaces. They expect people who usually park there to park somewhere else, which would be great and fine IF THERE WAS ANYWHERE ELSE TO PARK. Why bring more students to campus with a new residence hall when the students who are already here have no means of parking anywhere near campus?

                              • FIX THE PARKING

                                It doesn't make sense that Mines would destroy two parking lots at the same time! It literally takes me an average of 15 minutes everyday to find parking and even when I get here early I'm still late to class. Either add more parking spots somewhere else or at least lower the fee for parking until the new lot is built. I shouldn't be paying this much money just so Mines can make me late to class every. single. day.

                                  • Water in Maple is too cold!

                                    Ever since winter break, I have noticed that the showers in Maple do not get as warm as they did last semester (which was already not very warm). A couple of other residents have mentioned this as well, without my prompting so I know I am not the only one who thinks this. I initially thought it was just people at the beginning of a semester being responsible, but it seems that the water heater has been lowered or something.

                                    I get that hot water is expensive, but the water is barely considered warm in my opinion, and I know…

                                    • Fix the vending Machines

                                      Litterally no vending machines get refilled or fixed. Most don't take cards and alot of the times won't give you your money back if you put in cash. Please look at Coors Tek and the one by subway as examples.

                                      • Mandatory Fees for Official Transcripts

                                        To order an official transcript students must pay between $10 and $20 for every semester they need one. This could add up to $200 or more for a standard student over the course of their mines career and doesn't include the even larger fee for purchasing diplomas. This fee is unfair for students. Mines clearly has the information at all times, they should be able to just give us a copy. Furthermore, most requests for transcripts are for use in applying for scholarships and jobs. If a student is applying for scholarships especially, it's pretty clear that they are already…

                                        • Vending Machine Ctlm

                                          The drink machine on the first floor of ctlm does now give accurate change. Multiple times I have bought one drink, paid $5, was supposed to get $3.50 back and only got 50 cents back. Right now I’m owed $9 in change and tried to submit a work order a month ago but have yet to hear back to even see if they got the work order.
