What do you consider the worst thing about Dickinson State University? Why?


There were many pros about DSU, but what really irritated me was that paper work would get lost within the system. Wether it be housing or financial aid, somehow it would become lost.


All things considered, I believe that the meal plan that is offered and the food that is served in the cafeteria are the worst aspects of this school. This year the meal plans were changed; all students living in on-campus dorm halls must purchase the unlimited meal plan at a flat rate. All students living in on-campus apartments must purchase a $500 meal plan. With the diversity of students and poor cafeteria food, many students don't feel that it 's necessary to purchase the unlimited plan, as it may be a waste of their money.


The costs. It is hard to come up with the money to pay for school while playing a sport and going to school full-time.


Dickinson State University is located in a small town where opinions of activities outside of school are limit. While this does mean its force a person to focus on thier studies, one can easily become bored with the lack of chooses. I spent more than one day in my dorm, wondering what I should do that day.


I think the worst thing would be the parking issues. There is very little parking on campus and it is hard during times of inclement weather when you have to walk a long way in order to get to class.


What I consider the worst thing about Dickinson State University is the weather. The snow fall will probably be the hardest thing for me to deal with other than that, Dickinson State University is great.


It is in a small town that doesn't have a lot for college kids to do. However, the town is very family oriented. If you have children, there are loads of activities for them to do and cost effective ways to do them.


The worst part of being at Dickinson State is the amount of partying that goes on. It is not directly linked to school events, but the school does not do anything about the students who show up drunk to school events. It makes social events not as enjoyable when the peers around you are being rude and loud.


DSU is a great university with a wide variety of majors to choose from. The only thing is the shortage of housing.


I really do not think there is anything bad about my school. They are great. They will try to accomodate you in anyway they possibly can. The only bad thing I can think is that they are located in Dickinson, only because I live in Bismarck and do not want to move.
