  SU to survey students on their study experience at the TFDLPDF files may take a moment to load

As part of the Students’ Union’s annual survey, vice-president academic Hana Kadri wants student feedback on potential changes to the Taylor Family Digital Library (TFDL).

The SU wants to speed up repairs in the library — such as broken power outlets — and improve the library’s study space.

Kadri says that many repairs are not dealt with quickly in the TFDL because students don’t immediately report the problem to staff. There’s a backlog of repairs around the university, so the sooner a problem is reported, the sooner it is fixed.

Arts students will enjoy a refurbished Arts Lounge in the fall with the space set to receive $8,000 in new furniture this August.

Plans include adding more sofas, coffee tables, book shelves, student art and a new sound system.

The Arts Lounge opened in Feb. 2013 on the first floor of the Social Sciences building. These are the first upgrades to the space.

Students’ Union arts representative Kirsty McGowan said the upgrades will make the space more hang-out friendly.

Every year, the Students’ Union surveys students on a range of issues, from performance and funding to favourite campus events and media (the Gauntlet scored second behind CJSW. We’re content with that).

The SU uses these results to help with policy decisions, and overall, they found that students are quite happy with their performance.

Nearly 2,000 undergraduates responded to the survey.

Here’s a little snippet of what they said.

The dogs are back in town.

Students will once again get the chance to unwind with monthly pet-therapy sessions every month in That Empty Space this upcoming year.

Although this is pet-therapy, don’t expect to play with animals other than dogs.

The Students’ Union will partner with Pet Access League Society, a Calgary-based pet-therapy organization, to hold these sessions.

Fortunately, help is available.
