  3. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    I consider the worst thing about Bishop State Community College to be the issue of communication. The majority of the time it is nearly impossible to contact appropriate members of the staff, (even proffessors), in order to get necessary information and/or to ask questions. Unfortunately, I feel that this frustrating fact is all too often present in many other institutions as well.
