Student government pushes for campus app updates

Andrew Hudson   ||   Apr 29, 2015  ||   

Missouri State, like many other universities, has its own mobile app. And like many of its peers, MSU's offering is a work in progress.

At the moment, students who have downloaded the app primarily use it to track bus arrival times or keep up on campus news. An initiative being led the university's Student Government Association, however, wants to add more functionality to the mobile app.

Per a report form Missouri State's student newspaper, The Standard, the student government association is planning the addition of five updates to the app that will provide students with more personal and university information, including campus debit balances, and dining hall menus.

The first of the updates will enable students to access their Bear Bucks and Boomer Meal balances via the app.

The second of the updates would make dining hall and PSU vender menus viewable on the mobile app. At present, there is a separate app, offered through food service vendor Chartwells, but according to the report few students use the app.

A third update would connect a new parking garage counter to the mobile app, enabling students to more quickly find parking spaces.

Another update would see a filterable MSU calendar added to the app. Using the calendar, students will be able to sort their schedules based on academics, athletics or special events.

The final proposed update plans to incorporate a safety tab into the mobile app. From this tab, students will be able to call the campus safety and transportation department or the university's safe walk service. The safe walk, like at many other universities, provides security escorts for students walking on campus at night.

No official release dates for the updates has been given, but access to all of the new features is expected for the beginning of the coming fall semester.
