Fix My Campus (FMC) is a DSG affiliate body designed to connect suggestions from the general student body to student-action groups all across campus. These suggestions are submitted through the Fix My Campus Facebook page, and then a committee of students selects the most viable and popular suggestions to pursue. In only three years since our founding, FMC has garnered over 3000 members to our Facebook page and has successfully implemented many student suggestions.
In addition to solving a number of maintenance requests each year, FMC has realized many other student suggestions. In our first year alone, FMC helped to add a Help Light to the Duke Arts Annex and worked closely with the Duke Police Department to upgrade lighting all across campus. FMC also collaborated with DukeList to completely renovate the Lost & Found system on campus, and make it much more digitized and modern. FMC collaborated with students on campus and enabled Au Bon Pain to donate their leftover food every day to the Durham Rescue Mission.
More recently, Fix My Campus has worked with various departments within the Duke administration to install bike racks, picnic tables on central campus, and get new light fixtures installed outside of Perkins. We've also worked extensively with the Duke post office to get better hours of access for students.
If you are interested in joining the Fix My Campus committee, please send an email to Jacob Glasser or Pooja Metha. The committee meets once a week, and committee members are responsible for communicating with various student-groups on campus, as well as pursuing suggestions independently.
