ASM focuses Cellphone Reception campaign

The Associated Students of Madison University Affairs Committee met Tuesday to discuss survey results from its campus Cell Phone Reception campaign, which aims to increase access to cell phone usage in problem areas on campus.

According to University Affairs Committee member Callen Raveret, who is spearheading the project to increase cell phone reception in popular campus facilities, approximately 1,200 surveys were completed on the subject from Feb. 18 to 24.

Raveret said the three places on campus where students most frequently used and encountered poor cell phone reception at were Union South, Dejope Residence Hall and university athletic facilities.

Raveret said Union South is the “most logical” campus space to try and improve with the campaign because it is a “huge part of campus,” hosting events such as Student Orientation, Advising and Registration.

University Affairs Committee Chair Becca Buell agreed, saying it is a popular location for many people, from students to alumni.

“Union South is a great area to be targeting because we have a lot of different parties and people that are invested,” Buell said.

Upon researching how to best go about improving cell phone reception in these three spaces, Raveret said there was “little room to grow” within the athletic facilities and too limited of a portion of the student population using Dejope Residence Hall for either of those buildings to be the ideal starting point.

The committee will continue its work and report back on the next steps of the campaign in later meetings.
