Feedback Idea for Champaign House

I am very pleased with living at Champaign House, there are just a few things that would help improve my experience. The most important perhaps is a security issue. All of the parking spots are numbered with our apartment numbers, this is at times convenient; however, it makes it so anyone who wanted to break in could immediately see who was home and who wasn't. A numbering system that did not match apartment numbers would be a more secure method. Tenants could just be assigned a parking space, also that way if parking spaces needed to be rearranged, you would be able to just assign someone a different number. Another thing is that there is poor drainage in the parking lot, my parking spot is in a lake, making it nearly impossible to get to my car anytime there is any rain, also the sidewalks flood, improving this would be a big project, but I'm sure everyone would appreciate it. The last thing is that that it would be nice to have decent outlets in the bathrooms as the ones that are there currently do not accommodate all appliances. I don't mean to sound like I am griping, I really do enjoy staying here, those are just some ideas of what can be done to better improve things.
