I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  2. More free parking

    There should be more free parking on and around campus. It is ridiculous that you can't park anywhere on campus for 15 minutes without getting a ticket.

  3. Increase the food outlets at the Union

    Presently there are long waiting lines at lunch time at the food outlets in the Union. Chinese food seems to be the overwhelming favourite and the lines are rather long. With the growing number of Asian students and the general growing popularity of Asian food amongst all, it is recommended that an additional outlet for Asian food be opened.

  4. Remove the plus minus scale overhaul from the grading system.

    The plus minus scale has no A+ on its scale which makes it an unbalanced scale. It unfairly punishes A- students, and its only purpose is to differentiate students and it punishes good students.

    The ASUW Academics, Technology, and Sustainability Committee has been hard at work completing in depth research on this issue. Senator Josh Materi from the College of Arts & Science, the Chair of this Committee, has put together a Status Report which details this research. Please reference the Status Report from Senator Materi for the Committee’s recommendations regarding how to overhaul and/or improve the current plus/minus grading system here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxvHE7ovI2jQWVkxbTF0cG1SRWc/view?usp=sharing.
    The ASUW Student Government will continue to look at how to best address this issue moving forward. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the ASUW Student Government at asuwgov@uwyo.edu. We will periodically update this issue with any progress made.

  5. Improve parking on campus

    Build permit parking lots/garages for those that commute in; we would gladly pay $100+ per semester to avoid the hassle of finding a spot on campus. Limit how long a car can park on Ivinson, 9th, and Willet. Parking is the single most frustrating thing as a student.

    Students, your concerns about wifi have been heard! Improvements to the campus wifi system are underway, and ASUW would like your help. We are partnering with a campus Wifi committee to promote a survey that would figure out where exactly the improvements are most needed. The survey can be found on the ASUW Guide app, or at this link: https://www.uwyo.edu/itsecure2/wireless!

    Thank you for all your help! Our app can be found in the App Store under UWYO Guide!

  7. Smoke Free Campus

    There are now 1,477 smoke free campuses in the United States, with 975 of those being tobacco free (http://www.no-smoke.org/pdf/smokefreecollegesuniversities.pdf). It would be great to see this policy implement on our campus, including e-cigs.

    ASUW Director of Governmental Affairs Chris Ryan has been hard at work completing initial research on this issue. He has put together a Status Report which details his endeavors so far to issue an official survey through the University of Wyoming Institutional Review Board for Protection of Human Subjects and can be referenced here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxvHE7ovI2jQUWozUjBKZVM4WmM/view?usp=sharing. Once a survey receives final approval by the UW IRB for Protection of Human Subjects, the ASUW Student Government will monitor and gather data from the survey.

  8. Allow Student Health Services to write doctors notes for illness.

    Many professors require a doctors note for excused absences. However, Student Health Services has a policy against it. If you only have the student medical insurance, you would have to pay out of pocket to see a health professional to get a note. This is a burden on students. Correct the system, either allow Student Health Services to write excuses, or prohibit professors from requiring them.

  9. Improve outdoor lighting throughout campus.

    The parking lot lighting outside of the union as well as the lighting throughout prexys is unacceptable and DANGEROUS. I hate seeing people struggle to find their keys in the dark parking lot, or bikers nearly running over walkers simply due to poor lighting. This campus is not safe without proper lighting and it's a pretty simple fix.

  10. Improve snow and ice removal

    Despite the plowing in parking lots and brushing the snow off of sidewalks, the left behind snow and ice is very dangerous every winter. I lose track of how many times I have seen people fall every winter. There are places on sidewalks during the winter where there is no way to avoid the ice. Parking Lots also need to be more clear of ice as people need to be able to get to their vehicles safely. The safety tips for walking on ice and the number to call for problem spots is not enough. There needs to be more…
