Recent Concerns Addressed
Students are loud even after quiet hours.
The best way to address the issue is to either a) speak to your R.A. about it immediately, or b) call the R.A. on duty and ask them to check out the situation. You may do this anonymously, which may make you more comfortable than discussing it with your R.A. If the problem continues without your R.A. addressing it, you can and should go to your community coordinator or the director of residence life with the details.
The weekend food is never as fresh or abundant as during the week.
For a quicker response on this matter than SGA can provide, use the comments and suggestions box placed near the cafeteria entrance. When you fill out the form, provide as much information as possible. The Aramark staff is known for flexibility and working to address student concerns.
The unused meals do not carry over from week to week.
You are correct. You cannot skip meals one week and eat them the next week or month. This allows the cafeteria to plan the number of meals more accurately. Try to plan ahead to fit in all of your meals in a week. Otherwise, you are given a chance to change your meal plan to fewer meals per week at the beginning of each semester. Also, the flex plans allow you to use your meals anytime throughout the school year.
Everyone living on campus is required to eat on campus.
Requiring a meal plan of all resident students keeps the price per person down. As with insurance, the more subscribers, the cheaper the payments. To offer the convenience of dining on campus and to provide affordable meals, all students living on campus are required to subscribe to a meal plan.
Off-campus students should have access to the Student Union.
We could not agree more! With our recent updates to the Union, we would like as many students to utilize it as possible. Students living off-campus have access to the Student Union when the building is open. If you are an off-campus student and would like access to the Union during evening hours and on the weekend, just stop by the Physical Plant during their open hours and request it.
The computers are always dirty.
Each computer lab should be equipped with hand sanitizer. If there are none or if a computer is particularly dirty, contact the Help Desk at extension 3870.
Campus computers load slowly.
The IIT department is constantly updating the computers around campus to ensure that they remain running at adequate speeds. Although they may not run as fast as your personal computers at home, they should be useable. If you notice a computer is particularly slow, let the IIT Department know so that they can address the issue in a timely fashion.
Why can’t I save my documents to school computers if it’s my account?
There simply is not enough hard drive space in each computer in order to save each person’s documents on each computer. Also, the IIT department does not want to have to choose whose documents to erase first in the situation that the hard drive space becomes too limited. Bring a flash drive or email yourself documents that you intend to keep and need handy. Flash drives are sold at the front desk of the library.
