We need a Journalism Program

submitted 6 months ago by in Academics

While the Media Studies department offers several classes that tackle issues about journalism, the major is limited to Film Studies and Media Policy and Ethics as primary concentrations and additionally does not offer a minor program. It is widely known that funding is an issue, but this area of study is not only growing in […]

Returning to the old printing system

submitted 11 months ago by in Academics

Please work on returning to the old printing system. Not only did it work without major problems, but the new printing system takes forever and it is unclear whether you can print from your personal computer or not. We fixed a system that was not broken with one that is not only totally broken, but […]

Access to Past Class Resources Blocked

submitted 1 year ago by in Academics

There are many classes in my Collab sections where I have access to everything, including grades, forum posts, emails to the class, etc. But I noticed there is one specific section missing from each past class – the Resources tab. Why is this? I have enjoyed many if not all of my past classes and […]

Access to Resources from Previous Classes

submitted 1 year ago by in Academics

Why is it that on Collab, we have access to everything from our previously taken classes, except for the resources supplied in the course? By that, I mean lecture notes and slides, pdfs of articles and other various resources. It makes no sense that having successfully taken a class, if I wish to revisit some […]

No more unnecessary textbook purchases!

submitted 1 year ago by in Academics

Can UVA transition to a much more efficient system of providing/leasing/buying textbooks. Other universities – for example the University of Cambridge – provide many copies of core textbooks in the libraries, saving students hundreds of dollars every year! Can we stop selling over-priced reprints of textbooks and articles. Instead, UVA should buy some, put them […]

Advising

submitted 1 year ago by in Academics

For first and second years I feel there is NO sort of help or guide with what classes to take based on what you’re interested in/ finding a major. My advisor was no help every time I met with him. He would just take off my hold and tell me to talk to different departments. […]

Professor Shortage

submitted 1 year ago by in Academics

Students in several departments, especially Media Studies and Computer Science, have a really difficult time getting into classes they require for graduation. There are not enough professors in these departments, and there are several professors who will be on sabbatical for the upcoming school year, meaning there will be even fewer professors available for teaching.

Advising

submitted 1 year ago by in Academics

Class advising for first years is extremely hard. There’s very little thoughtful guidance on advising during orientation.

Quiet Study Room

submitted 1 year ago by in Academics

Many students come into the study lounges of dorms that are not theirs and then play music and take up all the space. Students who need their own study lounges are then now allowed to use them.

Reserving Study Rooms in Claude Moore Library

submitted 11 months ago by in Academics

Reserving a study room in Claude Moore Library is a huge hassle. I have to call the library and someone has to search for the study rooms available and then put in a ridiculous amount of information about me to just reserve one room. I reserve a study room for my group a few times […]

Clemons unhelpful for printing

submitted 11 months ago by in Academics

I printed an 85 page document at Clemons library that I needed for a class. I’ve done this before. Unfortunately, the document formatting was completely off and only printed the bottom half of each page. There goes my money. I checked the PDF formatting, which was 8.5 x 11 inches like normal paper. So I […]

Study Hours in Rotunda

submitted 11 months ago by in Academics

The Rotunda is only open for student study hours Sun-Tue. This is crazy considering UVa spent so much money actually trying to make the Rotunda more accessible (you can finally walk through the front doors!) and restore it to its original function as a library and as the heart and soul of the University. At […]

ARC

submitted 12 months ago by in Academics

The Academic Resource Center seems like a cool tool, but the most recent updates are from 2014. Is it kept up to date?
