  1. 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.

  2. Lack of availability of feminine hygiene products in campus bathrooms is neglect of ~30% of the CSM population.

    Most campus restrooms do not even have a feminine hygiene product dispenser, and those that do have not been stocked for months (or years). This is not a call for free hygiene products, but there should at least be availability to purchase these products in restrooms in the case of an emergency. This is a matter of hygiene, sanitation, and basic human rights. Dispensers should be installed in all restroom and should be stocked regularly.

  3. Parking at Mines

    I think that the changes made to parking at Mines have royally disordered the already broken parking system. Making the lowest CTLM lot a commuter was one of the most ridiculous things parking services could have done. I pay close to $100 dollars more for a General Permit and it gives me the ability to park 20 foot closer than a lucky commuter? And thats only on a good day when I can even find a place to park ANYWHERE. Now they tried to make things right by adding a general lot by the ROTC building by Q lot. Sweet…

    This is something USG has been working on over the past few years. In the school’s 5 year plan they’re planning to construct a parking garage that would bring around 700 new spots. This is a project will take multiple years to complete and the recent price increases are going towards the construction of this parking garage. Feel free to comment below with anymore questions or concerns, come in to our Senate meetings, or come to our office hours!
    Sincerely USG!

  4. We need a space to have fun on campus!

    One thing I've noticed about the Mines campus is that there is no place to just hang out or do things that are not school work. Most of our students are commuters, but Mines remains the central meetup spot. Most students are also on campus all day during the week. We can't just study all the time.

    I propose that some sort of space is created for students to relax or have fun. This space would have comfortable seating, some sort of tv, maybe some games, and art supplies like paint or clay. The funds for this could come from…

  6. Math 201 $100 Homework System

    Prob&Stats uses McGraw Hill Connect for their homework assignments. On top of tuition and a textbook, it costs $100 to students. To my knowledge, there are over 150 students enrolled in the course. This wouldn't be a huge issue, except that a high school student could have written the software. Requiring students to purchase this expensive yet poorly implemented homework program is ridiculous. Not even kidding, lon-capa is better by most standards. Is there anything that can be done to stop using this system in the future?

    Thank you for your input. Unfortunately the math department makes decisions on how to best support their students through online systems. We will reach out to look at alternatives, but know that there is not a lot we can do other than express student concern. We are also looking at open educational resources (OER) in the future and will keep you updated on that.

    Love,
    USG

  7. Improve Apparel Options at Bookstore

    Maybe its just me, but the clothing options at the bookstore are pretty terrible. Don't get me wrong, the brand options are pretty nice, as is the quality of the products, but the designs for most of the gear are pretty mediocre. Each semester I run by the store to see if the stock has turned over and some new life has been breathed into the collection, but I'm always greeted with a sea of dull gray with the occasional patterned gray or blip of dark navy with unappealing and often wordy panel designs. Is there any way we can…

  8. Actually Use the Emergency Alert

    I feel like after the event near Mines Park last night it needs to be addressed. Last night there was an imminent threat, and once again no text about it and not even an email yet at 9am the morning after. This year there has been 2 potential shooters and a package that was viewed as a bomb threat. It'd be nice to actually make use of the system that is supposed to protect us. What's the point of testing the equipment if it is never going to be used. Last year I got a text about an active shooter…
