Since Miami has a diverse population and a large LGTBQ community, gender-neutral areas would be expanded in Richter Library, University Center bathrooms, Mahoney-Pearson Residential College and Eaton Residential Hall.
Food Options 24/7
With the 24/7 study lounge, food options should also be provided. An option would be available from 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. the following day.
Shuttle stop expansion
A shuttle would be extended to reach the back areas of the campus, such as Panhellenic Association, School of Nursing and Health Sciences and School of Communication school.
Senior President’s Picnic
Much like the freshman picnic at President Shalala’s house, a senior picnic would be held for those who successfully finish their undergraduate career at UM.
Being a Greener U
Although there is a greenhouse area behind Hecht, giving it more attention would promote an environmentally-friendly campus and give students a chance to learn how to take care of vegetation. To be even greener, the concept of “energy floors” would be installed in the SAC stairs. These floors would emit energy to power the lights in the building so when students walk on the stairs, they would also be powering their environment.

A QR code would be implemented in student’s smartphones as a supplement to their CaneCard. If students forgot their CaneCard for the Wellness Center or Richter Library, a QR code would grant them entry.
Campus Life Amenities
For late-night movie nights, an on-campus Redbox would allow students to rent a movie and turn it in on the way to class the next day. Another ATM near the Whitten Learning Center would provide more accessibility for the high traffic that occurs in the area. A food truck carrying the famous milkshakes from the baseball game would give students more opportunities to enjoy the treat.
Athletic Events and Support
Athletes and students would have a better chance to get to know each other with a meet-and-greet event on the Green. This would give students incentive to go to the games and cheer on their new friends.
Chartwell’s Health Plans
For those who want to monitor nutritional intake andaccomplish physical and health goals, an enhanced MyFitnessPal could better track student’s progress. The app is a personalized Chartwell’s health app and would accurately tell students their caloric intake.
