QUESTION SYNOPSIS:  
Recently while strolling around campus, I noticed one of our police officers rolling around on an expensive Segway.  Two nearby students commented "What's wrong with a bike?"  So I refer the question to you Mr. President, in this era of tight budgets, pay cuts, greenhouse gases, and an obesity epidemic, what's wrong with a bike?

QUESTION SYNOPSIS-I:  
The spaces in Lot 9 closed for construction early in the summer.  Campus Update announced that the construction zone would be reduced in size before the start of the fall semester returning some number of designated spaces to Lot 9.  This does not appear to have happened.  An inquiry to Parking Services yielded the response that the designated spaces lost to the Lot 9 construction have not been redistributed elsewhere around campus.  Doesn't this mean that those who purchased designated permits face a higher ratio of permits to spaces than announced when we initially purchased our permits?

QUESTION SYNOPSIS-II:
Currently the passing rate for a course is calculated based on the number of students who get a C or above out of the total number of students remaining in the class after the add/drop date.  The calculation includes the students who have withdrawn from the class within the University approved withdrawal deadlines.  Is this practice justified?  Students who withdraw appear to be unprepared and why should they be therefore counted at the end of the class?  Can a department opt out from the withdrawal option for its classes?
