- Limited engineering classes are very conflictive with a working student’s schedule. Things that may be possible to correct only having one course available the same time and day every semester may be to switch every semester the availability of class, make an online version of the class available, or get into contact with other local schools offering this course for dual enrollment, and see how they may be able to help with the student’s needs. This could be solved by contacting the department, contacting other schools, getting the dean involved in opening up another section and getting ahold of students who have the same issues.
- Better lighting on campus I think is an important one, because I know having taken night classes, that some of the regions on the outskirts of the campus where students have to park, are not lit up to the standard they should be for one to be able to see all of their surroundings. Some solutions may be to use brighter lights, have more frequent lights, more security around at night or make different parking available.
- My work needs a new system for carry out. At night we get extremely busy and all carry out calls are directed to the hostess who in turn has to direct them to the carry out person in the back. This becomes chaotic because she is trying to seat people and take reservations being very busy, and the calls end up coming to the bar, where I am also busy and some calls never go through. I would suggest a new answering system that would allow customers the option before they get directly through to choose, party arrangements (which we also have a separate person for that and it also initially goes through the hostess stand, but isn’t as big of a problem), carryout, banquet, general questions and reservations. It would make things a lot more organized and isn’t quite a new and modern technology that would be difficult to acquire. We would need to get into contact with the phone operating system and probably some form of a cable network to make this change happen. Also, we would have to prove to our managers that it would make work for the employees run a lot smoother.
