What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


huge class sizes


I am not easily frustrated, so really the amount everything costs even though it is worth it is frustrating.


The most frustrating thing about my school is the traffic and congestion of the campus. I live off campus so i have to plan when i leave for class, the campus itself is so congested that it takes thirty minutes to travel through it. Other than the food served at the food courts, the size of the campus is the most frustrating aspect.


The scholarships offered are not enough.


The size


The way that the faculty can give you the run around about things.


People were not diverse at all, which is why I didn't come out in high school


The advisors tend to frustrate many students. I have a specific one assigned to me, but I tend to schedule my appointments with another advisor in the field. The advisor I was assigned tends to try and steer students in a certain direction whether it's what they are interested in or not. I have gone in to discuss a certain topic and my advisor kept going off the subject talking about something else. He has also adviced me to take certain classes, which I've found out I don't need in order to graduate.


In the business school, too many professors are in their first few semesters of teaching. In addition, an incredible amount are foreigners with heavy accents which makes learning difficult because they have a hard time answering questions that require a higher level of cognitive reaction.


I have looked forward to coming to this school since I was in junior high! I love going to this college! The only frustrating part is the expense and the fact that my parents are helping (through loans and what they can afford to help us with monthly) to help me and my brother and sister who are also in college now and this places a big financial burden on us all (My siblings and I all work part time and go to school full time).


The most frustrating part about my school is their policy in the dorms during holidays. Students have to leave the dorms by 10am the first day of the holidays and are not allowed back in to the dorms until the Sunday before classes resume. This makes things difficult for out of state students like myself. The dorms are also closed during Thanksgiving which can cause difficulties for out of state students.




There is not enough parking at the library. There is not a lot of study space at the library


Balancing work and social life.


The most frustrating thing about my school is the overcrowding and aging of classrooms. The school has begun to accept more and more students each year into the school yet have not been as quick to update classroom sizes and infrastructure. The dorm rooms and on campus apartments are also begining to deteriorate and become outdated with ammenities that most college kids need and want. If my school would like to sustain and improve upon its national rankings I feel that they need to update their infrastructure to accomidate for the continued increase in enrollment.


The most frustrating thing about my school is that people depend too much on alcohol for fun on the weekends. There is never anything to do on the weekends that does not involve alcohol.


There are so many people and bikes, its hard to get around.
