STUDENTS WANT TO KNOW -Taken from the November 2012 Alumni View
“What do you feel the University needs to add in the best interests of the student body?” – Dino F. ‘13
“Sororities and fraternities... and wifi in the dorms!" - Dan S.
“Dishwashers in LV." -Grace A.
“I have always thought a travesty that any University could operate without a proper theater with a professional stage and plenty of seating. Not only would it be in the interests of the Dance, Music and Theater departments, but it is also important for hosting events with politicians and other public speakers and giving addresses to large amounts of the student body. I remember this being one of my biggest annoyances that I had with FPU when I went there. Trying to cram people into Cheney or the black box theater always seemed so unprofessional."-Rose F.
“I agree that we needed a theater. And we didn't have the black box when I was there, just the Ravencroft and the field house. I get that it's tough to raise money to build for arts rather than sports, but I do wish we had a more up to date theater space."-Jill A. '95
"I think they should create a job fair to help students network with possible employers."-Tristan S.
"A better/new 'campus center,' student union, recreation hall - whatever you want to call it. A central location where you can have students on couches, a lounge area, pool tables and a place where you can grab coffee, a snack, watch tv, news, and sports. An open easy flowing center, building, hall, area-whatever, that can encourage students to leave their rooms and hangout. Some place that is more appealing than the Alumni Lounge, the Pub, or going to the top of the 'Bubble' to play pool, bringing all of these concepts together to one centralized location, area, that has a flow and easy access for students." -Nicholas P.
"I absolutely agree with the suggestion of a real theater. I also think that our library is in desperate need of being updated with more spaces for individual and group study. Perhaps we could even have a coffee cart or something in there to make it more comfortable for working." - Maribeth C.
"More food options on campus instead of just the cafeteria and the pub." - Mandi B.
"A new Fine Arts building." - Jason L.
"A serious upgrade to the Field House... " - Brandon T.
"How about updating some of the residence halls so that all the students can benefit!" - Ashley E.
