We’ve been talking with the CIO about this and it looks promising! We will keep you posted on our progress!
The Graduate Student Government is trying to extend the Mines email address out to 5 years. We will keep you updated on their progress!
This is a big topic and CCIT knows students want this. Last year there was not enough time to make the change but this year CCIT is starting earlier so current seniors can have this for when they graduate. USG can not promise this will happen this year but working with CCIT we hope it does.
They are actively working on finding a solution to the grade problem and are very aware of the problem. From here, there is not much more we can do. The report card on the homepage has been renamed to ‘grades’ so hopefully this helps students find their grades more easily. This is always accessible so you will always have access to your grades,
We have emailed the blackboard administrator to ask about it. Hope to have answers soon! In the mean time you can always look at the very bottom of your home page where classes are listed under “report card.” Just click on the numbers and the grade page will be pulled up. It’s not convenient but it works!

UPDATE: We took the concern to faculty senate. Overall, the plus minus system has brought up average GPA. However, we do see how the A- might hurt the students who normally get A’s. Faculty senate has asked us to poll the students to get more information on the issue, so that will be going out in an email soon.

Currently CTLM has a dedicated 24 hour computer lab with a lot of computers and software! Any student, no matter what major or year, can use these computers. USG acknowledges that there should be more space on campus for 24 hour dedicated computer labs. We will continue in the future to advocate for new computer labs. For example, the new library renovation project will create new space for more computer labs accessible to all students.
Update: It is in the short future of capital planning to create two more computer labs. One will be a teaching lab in Chauvenet and the other will be in Brown building. A definite timeline is not yet known. It is still a class project to work on longer access in Brown.
Update: One of the main reasons why getting access to this building is so difficult is because of…

How is it that the security problems are limited to just Brown building? The Chemical Engineering and Petroleum Departments grant their students 24/7 access. I do not understand why these security issues are exclusive to Brown Building. I understand that the CTLM is also 24/7 for all students, and that is a step in the right direction, but many different software programs that are needed for certain classes are only on computers in Brown Building.

On Thursday, January 15th, Undergraduate Student Government had our first meeting of the semester. The main topic of the evening was Mines Market. With the opening of Mines Market and closure of Slate Café, there were changes in the hours of Digger Den. Mines Market is now open late at night while Digger Den’s hours were cut back. Also the previous to go option where students were allowed to grab anything Slate was offering that day was replaced with a to go sandwich with two sides. This has caused a lot of upset with the campus. As a result, USG asked a few staff members involved in this decision making process to come and speak about why this decision was made and take input on how things could be improved.
