ONGOING A/C AND HEAT PROBLEMS!
UNRESOLVED PARKING ISSUES AND TICKETS:
UNIVERSITY OF HARTFORD STUDENTS SOUND-OFF ABOUT RESIDENTIAL LIFE AND ON-CAMPUS PARKING
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE!
WEST HARTFORD, CONN., APRIL 15, 2022: Students studying public relations in the University of Hartford’s School of Communication conducted a follow-up study this month, to gauge undergraduate and graduate perceptions of residential life and parking on campus. Building upon the survey completed by students in the Fall 2021 semester, shared with the UHart administration, the new survey reveals ongoing issues impacting student life, from infestations to mold, heating and air conditioning issues and complaints about parking lots, enforcement and costs associated with parking.
In the fall, students canvassed 77 students by hand. This semester, students are using Google Forms to conduct their survey and have so far received more than three dozen responses.
The new survey, posted online, reveals students are still encountering very troubling conditions in their dorms, from mice and bees to mold and even a bat. HVAC issues were mentioned by several students. And to be fair, there were also students who reported no problems whatsoever.
Students taking CMM253W Writing for the Media not only conducted the survey but added their own experiences and shared stories they’ve been told by classmates by blogging about them. To read their blogs, click here.
Parking issues ranged from inexplicable ticketing to complaints about the availability and condition of parking lots and spaces.
Here are the responses so far to the 24 questions asked by students in CMM253W:
The results of the survey are being shared with UHart administration officials. It remains open for any student who wishes to add their voice at https://bit.ly/36l6SEs.
