Senate surveys students

The Student Relations Committee recently asked students to fill out a survey about issues they’ve noticed on campus to win a $25 Bookstore gift card.
“We did the survey because we really wanted to know what students thought about what was going on around campus,” Student Relations Chairwoman Lisa Beltrame said. “After a bit of hesitation from a few people, we were able to send the survey out and got amazing responses.”
The results were so extensive, especially in the fill-in-the blank sections, that the committee is still sifting through students’ responses, Beltrame said.
“Those specific questions and concerns will be addressed at Speak Up in the Student Center ballroom,” she said.
Beltrame said there were several major issues students addressed.
Parking and drainage are the two largest problems students have on campus, with 45 percent and 43 percent of students responding negatively respectively.
The largest problem with technology on campus is the lack of wireless Internet, with 66 percent.
Beltrame said this problem is being dealt with by Student Senate and administration.
The largest academic problems are lack of new class sections and academic advisors with 74 percent and 28 percent respectively.
Speak Up was Thursday night in the Michel Student Center ballroom.
