Please provide in one to two paragraphs an issue that you think should be changed or improved on
- UNO’s faculty, staff and student government is working everyday for betterment of students and make healthier environment for studies. To make it even better, I want to make following changes on campus:
1. There should be recreation centre in every building of campus where students can play in-house games, may do some workout during break while taking break from studies. Specially at PKI where students are in Computer Science or Management Information Systems course. Currently there is only the HPER building for workout and sports.
There should be department specific small library in every building on campus so that it becomes easy for students to get the required books and resources quickly.
Many students face problem to visit north campus on weekends as shuttle services are not running on Saturday and Sunday. Based on the students needs, we can conduct survey for shuttle requirements and start the service on weekends.
There should me more on-campus housing at affordable monthly rent. I myself wanted to stay on-campus but considering the overall monthly expenses, I dropped my plan to stay there. Many students spend time on campus for their studies and assignments throughout the semester. We have vending machines for drinks, pop and food packages, but there is no vending machine at most of the buildings for having a hot cup of coffee.
Please describe in one to two paragraphs what makes you qualified to sit on Student Government.
Graduate senate who works with the Student Government does play an important role on campus and is the front face of every student and conveys their thoughts to the management and staff in order to get their problems resolved. I have a similar experience during my undergraduate studies where I was the Class Representative (CR) wherein i dealt with various issues that my classmates faced and helped them to solve those under the guidance of management and professors. Before commencing my graduate studies at UNO, I worked as an Assistant Manager for a manufacturing company for four years. During those four years, I got a great exposure of dealing with people of different levels and positions. Managing my subordinates and getting work done from them on-time, at the same time dealing with higher management and reporting them for every update, interacting with clients were my key roles. The acuity with which I applied my knowledge in my roles and a keen interest in learning new things helped me to nurture the team building qualities within me which makes me a good team maker as well as a team member.
