SGA senators discussed overnight student parking and Wi-Fi in dorms at the meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 28.

Senator Mike O’Brien suggested allowing resident students to park at the Salem End and Maynard parking lots after the RamTram stops running at 2 a.m. 

“I feel like as long as they can move their cars back by 7 a.m., they should be able to leave their cars there for safety concerns,” O’Brien said.

Senator Adam Scanlon brought up the ongoing Wi-Fi issue throughout the campus dorms.

He suggested conducting a survey concerning which buildings on campus have the strongest Wi-Fi and times with most available bandwidth.

Senator Fallon Soye said she received an email from the IT Department explaining that recent improvements have been made to West Hall’s Wi-Fi.
