Access to Past Class Resources Blocked

submitted 6 months 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 […]

Sidewalk under Ruffner Bridge

submitted 6 months ago by in Safety & Wellness

I think there really needs to be a sidewalk made on both sides of the road underneath Ruffner Hall. It is unreasonable to expect students to climb up to McCormick and back down just to get to Stadium Avenue and JPA and it isn’t safe for students to just walk in the bike lanes, which […]

Meeting Room Reservations

submitted 6 months ago by in General

It is very difficult to reserve rooms at buildings on Grounds. The Source seems outdated and confusing. Is there any way to ameliorate these issues and provide easier access to meeting spaces on grounds for students?

Towels at AFC

submitted 6 months ago by in General

I think it would be really beneficial if the towel service at the AFC was free for undergraduate students or at least students who use the pool so it is easier for students to swim and then go straight from the AFC to class. It gets pricey to have to pay 75cents a towel each […]

Trash Cans

submitted 6 months ago by in Buildings & Grounds

Please increase the trashcans around central grounds. I have seen people just drop their trash because they can’t find trashcans around the lawn and amphitheater, etc.

Encouraging Printed on Recycled Paper

submitted 9 months ago by in Sustainability

I think StudCo should work more to incentivize professors and students to print on recycled paper (paper that already has something else printed on the other side). I had a professor this semester who took off points for printing my final report on recycled paper, even though she didn’t mention it had to be on […]

Access to Resources from Previous Classes

submitted 9 months 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 […]

submitted 10 months ago by in General

A student was wondering if coffee could be included with a meal swipe at any locations. It might be very popular.

Outlets on 1st floor Clemons

submitted 10 months ago by in Buildings & Grounds

There aren’t enough outlets per number of tables on the first floor. Even just having more power strips available would be a quick fix, especially during finals.

Security Deposit for Recruitment Events

submitted 5 months ago by in Diversity Engagement

This year there is a $1000 fee for all CIO’s wishing to host events where individuals under the age of 18 will be present. This is especially detrimental for cultural CIO’s who host admissions outreach events in hopes of increasing diversity at UVA. Is there anything that can be done about this?

Tour Groups Too Big

submitted 5 months ago by in General

I am concerned that the student-led tour groups are getting unattractively large. I see groups of 20-30 prospective students and parents walking through Clark every day and guides shouting to be heard on the lawn by huge clumps of tour groups. I think that if I were a prospective student, I would find such a […]

STI Testing for free at UVA?

submitted 5 months ago by in Safety & Wellness

Does UVA provide free STI and HIV/AIDS testing on grounds or near grounds or do any groups host testing events? Is there any information on this anywhere? I feel like this information isn’t as readily available as it should be.

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

Tables in Thornton Stacks Broken

submitted 5 months ago by in Buildings & Grounds

A lot of the tables in Thornton Stacks (such as table O) have broken plugs so the charging ports on the table do not work. It would be great if these charging ports could be fixed or the tables could be fixed so all the CS students who essentially live here could charge their laptops. […]

Benches at Brown College

submitted 5 months ago by in Buildings & Grounds

Can we put in some benches in front of Brown’s Holmes and Rogers? While I personally am usually waiting outside for friends who live in Brown College, it is also a nice, quiet place to relax. I think it would be beneficial to install some benches there.

Counting ULink Peer Advising as Service Scholar Hours

submitted 5 months ago by in Community Service

I have been a peer advisor with ULink peer advising since my second year. I noticed that unpaid peer advising doesn’t count as service hours towards service scholar, and I thought it would be a good idea to give peer advisors hours for the service they do.

Financial Aid- Caruthers Hall

submitted 5 months ago by in Buildings & Grounds

Why isn’t there direct transportation to Caruthers Hall? As a first year it is difficult to make a trek all the way to the office and there isn’t a direct sidewalk to get there. Crossing the road is dangerous and there are always a lot of cars.

Trash Cans around grounds

submitted 5 months ago by in Buildings & Grounds

Can we get more trashcans around grounds? The amphitheater and lawn area needs more trashcans. There is a reason why Disney World has trash cans that aren’t more than 30 feet apart.

How do we know when a concern that we have posted on Speakupuva is being addressed or has been discussed? Will every concern put on here at least be brought up for discussion?
