Petition to Reduce Overcrowding at Missouri S&T

Occurs May 31, 2017

Location Campuswide

Contact Jonathan Jarvis (



With increasingly large student enrollment, Missouri University of Science and Technology is becoming more and more crowded. This is leading to many problems, among those being the large wait times at on-campus dining options and a lack of parking.The students of Missouri S&T would like the university administration to look into rectifying these problems.
The solutions to these problems would include: increased parking availability around campus, more on-campus dining options or extended dining hours for the current options, and perhaps, in extreme circumstances--requiring stricter entrance standards.
A petition to solve these problems is currently being drawn up. Contact Jonathan Jarvis at for more information.
