Results are in from an Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) organized poll about skateboarding, bike lines, an acknowledged alcohol presence on campus and a non-smoking policy. “All the questions came from things that we have heard a lot of student asking questions about,” ASI President Jason Colombini said. “The big one is the alcohol venue.”
Survey results are in from an Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) organized poll that asked students questions about skateboarding, bike lanes, an acknowledged alcohol presence on campus and a non-smoking policy.
After registering more than 4,000 student responses, ASI can now identify which mission to tackle first.
ASI President and agricultural business senior Jason Colombini said the results suggested strong student support for clearer bike use designation, whether that be in the form of a map or more lanes.
“That’s one with high support and low opposition,” Colombini said.
Another idea from the survey was a student-run store or co-op.
“That one has extremely high support,” Colombini said. “Now, it’s a process of looking into the possibilities, talking to the College of Agriculture and to the Cal Poly Corporation to see if it’s even an option.”
According to Colombini, ASI asked for student opinion about on-campus skateboarding, which campus policy currently doesn’t allow.
“All the questions came from things that we have heard a lot of student asking questions about,” Colombini said. “The big one is the alcohol venue.”
He said to move forward with a pub on campus, ASI first needs to address whether or not Cal Poly is a dry campus.
“We hear students saying, ‘We see drinking, we see tailgaiting,'” Colombini said, “so that’s what stems into people thinking maybe we should have a pub on campus.”
One question addressed an increase in student fees, which received the most amount of student opposition. When asked, “Would you support a fee to upgrade or reconstruct Mott Athletics Center to Division I standards?” more than 31 percent of the 4,016 participants were in opposition.
The idea that Cal Poly should be a smoke-free campus with minimal, designated smoking locations received the highest amount of student support.
All questions were reviewed by a statistician from the university, Colombini said.
