Themes (and our responses): More computers The LRC has 18 computers. A2103 is an open access lab.

Too Loud You peers may become disruptive. To address this:  Staff monitor and address noise as needed  We have policies in place regarding disruptive practices, such as cell phone use  Free earplugs are available at the Service desk  Please feel free to respectfully ask others to lower their voices

Other Comments (and our responses or explanations):  Blinds for windows – blinds needed throughout the campus are under review by the college  Longer meeting room time slots – 2-hour maximum slots allow meeting room use to be fair to as many students as possible, and are consistent with practices at Doon  Plugs for Study Cubicles – many electrical outlets are available under the counter seating; in future if we move the study carrels, we will request outlets  Printers closer to computers – the printer is located in the Copier Room to reduce noise  Better positioning of computer towers – we will ask ITS to review this situation  More study rooms – we will keep this in mind as the campus grows; other options include unoccupied classrooms, Room A3101, and small lounge areas about campus

We appreciate your suggestions. Thanks for your patience as we continue to improve.
