Campus Suggestions

Welcome! Have an idea that you believe would benefit the BU community? Suggest it here and have your fellow classmates vote. Ideas that are ranked highest will be fought for by the Boston University Student Union to be implemented by the administration.

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".

  1. Prohibit people from smoking near residence halls

    I have asthma that is triggered by cigarette smoke, among other things, so when people smoke outside of my resident hall, their smoke travels through my window into my room, which makes it difficult for me to breathe. Some buildings around campus prohibit smoking close to the entrances, and I believe the residence halls should be no different.

      • make work-study available to international students

        Job opportunities and financial aid are very limited to international students. Making work-study jobs available give international students a chance to earn some money for their daily purposes.

        • Make BU student trade webpage

          Wouldn't it be great if there was a webpage where you can post items that you don't need and look for used items that you need? You'll earn money from selling your old stuff and you'll also be able to buy stuff that you need at lower price.

          • Raise awareness of BU Print usage

            Every time a student prints a job through BU, a one-page receipt is printed along with it. We print 6,000 jobs daily as an institution, which leads to a lot of extra paper that students just recycle immediately, or throw in the trash. It has been made clear to me that this system will not be changed, but this excessive use of paper should be brought to light. Even a simple "would you like your receipt?" from the print station worker could make sure that they are recycled.

              • implement grade replacements if a class is retaken

                when a student fails a class then retakes the same class and passes, the passing grade should replace the failing grade and the failing grade is rescinded

                • make a listing of local salon services for all hair types

                  As a student at BU, it was really challenging for me to find places to get my hair done. I have course hair and some salons just wouldn't know what to do with me. Luckily, I found www.facebook.com/eternallylovely and Amari has been doing my hair ever since. She is GREAT and works with students on student price discounts. She never turns anyone away and works with all hair types.

                    • OpenCourseWare.

                      I think BU should follow the lead of MIT and other renowned academic institutions and allow the public to access content from courses for free.

                          • Open 24/7 Study Spaces!

                            Boston University prides itself upon being a world-class research institution. As such, Boston University students face particularly rigorous academic requirements. Students do not want to reduce these requirements; in fact, rigorous academic programs drew us to Boston University n the first place. However, over the past two years, students have consistently cited a strong need for a twenty-four hour study space with printing capacity. In response to these demands, the Boston University Student Union will develop a proposal for 24/7 study space that meets the needs of students within the budget of the administration.
