Undergrad Survey

We discussed some things we could do to improve our computing environment based on the undergraduate survey we recently completed. Short term possibilities include:

  • reorganizing the foyer downstairs
  • feasibility of cell repeaters
  • better chairs, lights workspaces and outlets in an open lab
  • advertise spaces around campus for students to use

We talked about assigning faculty to some of these issues.

  • Wireless: Klark and Greg
  • Spaces that are reservable: webmaster
  • Foyer: Seth
  • Better spaces in our labs: Christophe
  • Signs and Advertising: Daniel

For each of these issues, there are a number of things to investigate. For example, in the foyer, issues could include:

  • who owns the space
  • money for purchases
  • fire marshall

Longer term we need to consider:

  • feasibility of a lab remodel

We discussed improvements to the wireless network: Clark and Greg allocated 1000 addresses to WiFi instead of 255. Went from 95% to 25% to 30% usage. Maybe we could resurvey undergrads and see if service is better in the building.

Christophe discussed the survey in CS 236, and this started a brainstorming session with students. They want to start a student advising committee. Hopefully something will come of this. We will email the undergrads to let them know we are organizing a committee of students. Ask for a short paragraph for why. Tell us their standing. The email to students should include:

  • results of survey
  • prizes for survey takers
  • call for organizing a student committee

Greg and Klark will organize a set of students who left CS and went into IT to let us know why and what IT is doing.
