What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


The most frustrating thing about my school is that since the enrollment is so high it is hard to get into the classes that you want to. Also when you first start out and don't have very many credits you have to wait until everyone else registers so by that time a lot of classes are closed. Also there is not very many good student activities here, no school spirit and nobody goes to games. Unless you have other activities to do in the Tri-Cities, it's a boring school.


There are deadlines to meet such as applications and payment, however there is no one in Financial Aid to answer phones/questions. When I was accepted into the program that I applied to I was give 5 weeks notice. I have to quit 2 jobs, move and find loans. 5 Weeks is not enough time. They seem understaffed to meet the students needs successfully.
