What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


The most frustrating thing about my school is the cafeteria. Our food is not always the best, there are rare days where it is really good, but overall it is not very good. To make things worse we just renovated the cafeteria spending money on booths and tv, but the food still has not improved, which is really the most frustrating part of going here.


For me, the most frustrating thing about my school is the present lack of mentorship for the men in the Pastoral Ministries program. I think that it would be extremely beneficial to have the male pastoral professors really invest in the male students from freshmen year until graduation to mentor and teach the students as we grow and make our way through the school. As a pastoral student, I envy other schools that really emphasize the importance of having a strong male mentor. It is so important, especially at this age and especially for men pursuing the ministry.


When you get stuck in a class, with a teacher that should not be a teacher.


The cost.


Often times when students come to PBU they may think they have a thorough knowledge of the Bible. It is frustrating when classes begin and you realize you do not know anything about the Bible and you feel like a child all over again. However, each student graduates with 2 degrees (BS in Bible and BS in a professional field such as business, education, social work etc. ) and keeping this in mind often times compensates for the work load and the frustration. In the end it is all worth it.


The frustrations stem from student to student and student to faculty miscommunication and difficulty to relate past the ironclad defenses that we all construct.
