Energy Pod

Friday, August 17th, 2012

I’ve seen people pioneering the fractional ownership of that thing. Remember: it’s not just a piece of furniture but an “experience”, a “ride” you can sell, like how you sell Disney rides.

The stuff costs about $8,000 all included, then you can sell it at $5 – 7 an hour (a zipcar sells at $8 – 16 an hour plus tax). You tell people: take a nap starting from $2.5, with exam discounts. Trust me, people are gonna do it, and you’re there to make a profit. If you don’t believe me, fine, I’ll ask my dad to buy one tomorrow and put it in his office and then buy a charge machine beside it, see what happens.

Quiet in the library?

Monday, March 15th, 2010

Recently I have been coming to the upper level of the library to study and nearly every time have had to move because people feel it is okay to hold an extended conversation (loud, not in whispers). Today, some students were talking outside the printing station on the upper level and their conversation echoed down through the carrels in the quiet area. Is this okay, or is there some way to emphasize the need to be quiet in the library and take conversations to the lobby or outside? Thanks very much!

More computers to print from

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

All non-walkup computers are located far from printers. Make 1 computer a release station, and open the other computer up — it’s impossible to get to a computer that you can print from, and we DON’T NEED 2 release stations per floor!

The news in the lobby

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

The news playing in the lobby is silly. If I wanted to watch the news, I’d do it in a dorm lounge with sound.

Make a pond

We should have a Koi pond in atrium.

Animals please!

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

Let’s have a few kittens and puppies to play with for study breaks. (4 requests) A petting zoo would also be fun.

Cell phone Room

We need a cell phone room for people to talk in. I never study here anymore b/c people always talk on their cell phones. (8 requests)

Smoking Room/Lounge

A smoking room/lounge would be awesome.

Carrels

People need to stop leaving their stuff in carrels when they’re not there. People cannot just move into a carrel-other people need to use them too!!
