Man on the Street: How can UH improve?
October 13, 2016
In her 2016 Fall Address, President and Chancellor Renu Khator highlighted common issues and the direction that the University will take in coming years. Students, however, were concerned that certain matters remained unmentioned.
Common complaints revolved around dining and parking services. Some students said UH lacks diversity in food choices. UH is the second-most diverse research university in the nation, the students said, and dining services should consider this fact.
A regular criticism of parking services is the parking during football games. With this year’s enrollment numbers surpassed the last, students argued that the demand for more parking will increase.
“I know people that have bought parking permits and then they still can’t find parking, said biology freshman Ruth Akorikin. She also said that all students, and not just the first 5,000, should have free admission to football games. | Alycia Olson/The Cougar
