Benedictine University Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


The most frustrating this about my school is that there was never enough time to do everything that was offered. There was always something going on and so it was as if you had to pick and choose what you were going to do on campus, from presentations, to speakers, to performances, clubs, protests, meetings, etc.


The Wi-fi is always going on and off which gets frustrating when I bring my laptop to school to study or write a paper and the wifi goes on and off all the time. Also, another frustrating thing about this school is the parking. We have a parking garage but its always packed and it takes me nearly 20-40 mins to find a parking spot. Our student population is rapidly growing therefore we are running out of space to study and park.


The parking and the amount of reading for classes/HW


There are no recreational areas for students to just relax.There is no wifi available, and the meals on campus are not the best around. There is no transporational avaible for studnets who do not own cars for them to go to stores or downtown for food.


Too much emphasis on the commuters and not enough attention given to the residents at times.


The most frustrating thing about Benedictine University is that the classes for less common majors and minors are not always offered every semester. So, you really have to be aware of prerequisites for the classes you need to take and you have to plan out what classes you will take each semester so that you find the issues right away.


Not enough resources for an adult student to make them feel involved with the university.


The most frustating thing about my school is parking, really parking is the worse here. From the first day I came here parking has been horrible its slowlying becomeing better without having to park in the grass anymore but anytime before 10am till about 1pm parking is a all out battle.


I would have to say the most frustrating thing about benedictine is finding parking. In order to find parking you have to come way before your class starts at 8 in the morning. the only parking you'll find is all the way in the back and walking to your class could take 5-15 minutes depending on where your class is. However, they are currently making a parking garage but until that is completed they are taking up some of the precious parking spots. Guess I'll have to get up extra early!


hard to find parking.


I lived at home because the school was so close to my home, so it was harder for me to meet other students compared with those who lived on campus


The fact that there is never a place to park on campus.


I believe that the school needs to focus more on bringing people together. There are many different cultural groups and people do not understand others' religious views and therefore, there are different groups. This can all be fixed by helping students understand differences. Also, with these differences, the students all want the same goal for thier career. There are many other jobs out there for students and these should be available for students to see what alumni have gone into in the past with different degrees.
