Starting today students will have a direct line to student government for problems ranging from registration to rising tuition.
The FixMyCampus initiative, which launches today, is part of Student Body President Mary Cooper’s effort to increase communication between student government and students.
“We want to open up the doors of student government,” Cooper said. “The FixMyCampus initiative will help me help students.”
Students can either send text messages anonymously through TalkBin, a text messaging service by Google, or they can tweet to the Twitter handle
fixmycampus. Students also have the option of sending emails to fixmycampusgmail.com.
Organizers acknowledged that they won’t be able to provide a solution to every problem that students voice, but said they will focus on being responsive.
The program allows students to send text messages, emails or tweets to student government. Representatives will respond to the students within 24 hours of a request, said Dakota Williams, former student body treasurer and manager of the program.
