Monday on the street
What campus issue do you want to see the UNM administration address this school year?
Textbook trouble: “Price of books. I had almost spent $1,200 in books for this semester, and it kind of sucks. I start at the Bookstore, and then I check out everywhere online, and sometimes I can find them cheaper. I think if they can keep us at the Bookstore, they could probably end up benefiting a lot more.”
Senior, strategic communication
Cars and cops: “Parking is a huge issue. Campus safety was also a problem last semester. I read stories in the Daily Lobo about people getting harassed on campus. I also read that the police force is really small here for this being a really big campus.”
Make it brighter: “I would like to see them increase security. I have classes at night and it’s dark. I carry my phone, and I try to park near the campus.”
Junior, interdisciplinary arts
Red tape: “I had a lot of trouble getting my transcripts back because I studied abroad this semester in Buenos Aires. When my transcript came back, it was in Spanish, and getting that whole process figured out on my own was kind of difficult. So if there were someone I could talk to about any variety of problems I have with administration issues, that would be amazing.”
