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. Extra Trash Bin by IT

    The trash can outside the IT building overfills after games and then there's trash on the ground and around the bin.

  3. Put more trash cans near the residence halls

    There are no trash cans between the Business building and White Hall, and littering is really bad, probably due to the inconvenience of the large space. There are hardly any outdoor trash cans in convenient places, and no recycling options.

  4. Clean out the Tyrannosaur statue at the end of every semester so that by next semester it can be refilled with wishes.

    It will make it easier to shoot a pine cone into the mouth of the dinosaur and not fall out.

  8. Heated Sidewalks

    I think this would be beneficial during the winter especially for safety and convenience. You could possibly save money in the long run avoiding labor costs for snow removal.

  9. Concealed Carry on Campus

    With the state of the country, I think that offering a weekend course that when passed students receive a certificate to carry on campus would be beneficial. This may be difficult to pass; however, I think for the safety of students on campus as well as the safety of the children in the elementary school on campus it is a great idea. Hopefully we can get come together and pass this so everyone can feel more safe around campus.

  10. Enforce Leash Laws on Campus

    Many community members, both students and non-students, use the UW grounds as a place to walk, jog, or bike, including dog owners exercising their animals. Howeve,-r these animals are not always kept on a leash and are sometimes allowed to run free, which could be a safety hazard to children and the disabled. Even a normally well-mannered dog can be unpredictable and can be too rowdy with these individuals, causing them unnecessary fear, discomfort or injury that could have been avoided if the owner had just kept the animal on a leash. In order to protect the safety and rights…

  11. Better Tasting Water in the Enzi STEM Building's Fountains

    The water in all the drinking fountains in the Enzi building has a metallic taste and is very unpleasant to drink. Is there something we could do to fix the water?

    It would be beneficial to the whole community if the ice cream machine had both flavors.

  13. Care about your students

    Inform your students who may be in the library 9/22 that the dance students were going to take over the library and make it impossible for the other students to study/work on homework

  14. 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.

  15. 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. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.
