What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


The most frustrating thing about my school is the size. It is great to get the opportunity to meet so many people but sometimes you are not even seen as a person to falculty. We are sometimes treated as if we are all just things not people.


The program for my major was filled with instructors who weren't 'experts' in their field. It actually fit the whole 'Those who cannot do, teach' statement.


the tuition for out-state students


The school feels as though it is just starting to become a big undergraduate school. Meal plan and food options are very limited and on campus housing is extremely expensive for what you get. Many proffesors have heavy accents which make it a little difficult to follow in lecture.


I really dislike how spread apart the buildings are. It takes a long time to get to classes on certain days, especially when a teacher holds you after. Other than that, the school is a great school.


The parking issue is the most frustrating thing about IUPUI. Not only do I have to compete with the other students and teachers on campus but I also have to compete with the other business/medical facilities employees who work on campus as well.


The only frustrating part about IUPUI is once again the parking. With over 30,000 students parking is extremely difficult. However, with the space of the campus they offer their best attempt at creating the most available parking to their students. I just wish that IUPUI had more room to expand on their parking lots.


The school is perfect. The only frustration I have is driving downtown. I'm from a small town and the big city and the traffic is all new to me.


The school is mostly a commuter school, so there aren't a lot of people that live on campus. The people that do live on campus don't seem to be very social, so there isn't a lot going on all the time like there would be a a regular university. I'm not talking about parties, but just hanging out or meeting new people in general is a lot harder.


The only thing I can think of that is frustrating at my school is the parking! There are too many students and not enough parking, but I deal with it.


At first it is difficult to find where your classes are located and the cafeteria is not opened at night


Lack of student housing. I am currently finished at IUPUI and finishing at Southern Institute of Theological Studies!


The parking on campus has to be the most frustrating thing about my school. We only have enough parking spaces for about 1/5 of the students.


The most frustrating thing about IUPUI is that it is an urban campus. This is a great school for those who have a full time job or kids and would like to get an excellent education but do not wish to live on campus. However, for those of us who do live on campus, after 5 p.m., campus clears out, and the only people still at school are those who live here which is a small fraction of all students. It is not a traditional campus for new incoming freshman wanting to have a true college experience.


The most frustrating thing about IUPUI is the parking. Granted, they are in the process of building a new parking garage. The only way to find parking is to get there at least an hour or two before your first class.


I am not frustrated about anything concerning the school. I am happy with what IUPUI offers to me.


There's nothing really frustrating about the school except for the parking and traffic.


I do not believe that there is really anything frustrating with this school. If I had to gripe about something, it would be about some of the lower level classes that you are required to take. In my major they have only offered test out's for two classes.


I would have to say the parking. Although I'm personally not a driving student, I have friends that are and they complain about the lack of parking spaces available on campus.


Many of my teachers are foreign and you can not understand what they are saying most of the time. It is very hard to get help from them even in their offices.


It's frustrating that they is not meal plan. I live off campus and have to buy all of my food, and it adds up quickly.


The only frustrating thing at my school is finding a parknig spot.


the most frustrating thing is trying to find parking, if you don't get to campus early in the morning it is almost imposible to find parking close to campus.


Things may seem easy but really are not.


The most frustrating thing is that the campus is spread out, so some walks between classes can take 10-15 minutes.


Since I commute (and since most people commute), I don't get to go to many of the social events at IUPUI. Many of the fun ones are at 7pm or on the weekends. There are still some fun activities occasionally going on around lunchtime, but it's hard to meet people who you could hang out with later on because so many people commute from all over.


There is not much campus life. Many students commute, so they are only there when they have to be there for class.


The most frustrating thing about my school is sometimes the professors doing too much group work and not enough single work or one on one. Another frustrating thing is the classes are sometimes too large for learning, like haveing 150 students or more in a classroom and expecting all of them to learn at the same pace.


The most frustrating thing about my campus is the space avaliable for parking. Since this is a commuter campus one would think that there would be a lot more parking. Sometimes I have to arrive to campus at least a hour before class starts to ensure that I can find a parking spot and make it to class on time.


The most frustrating thing about my school is the parking availability


Parking is ridiculous. It costs nearly $180 for a year long parking pass and there are never enough spaces. If your classes start inthe afternoon, you can bank on spending at least 15-25 minutes searching for parking.


The number of students and availability of resources outside your area of study.


The fact that it is inside of Indy and i hate traffic.


Parking! I am sure there a alot of students at other schools that would say the same however it seems that the student to parking growth ratios are not matching.


Can be hard at times to make new friends because our school is so diverse that although I'm open to meet new people some only stick to their own ethnic groups. Also with smaller classes and a somewhat small campus it gets difficult meeting people at times.


The most frustrating thing about IUPUI is the parking, the commute, and living arrangements. Parking is a nightmare for most people. I don't have to do it because I walk to class, but there are not enough parking spaces for students, staff, and faculty. The commute to IUPUI is just as bad as the parking. Since IUPUI is downtown, students are stuck in the morning commute with all of the downtown employees as well as other IUPUI students. The dorms are only for freshman and campus apartments are too expensive.
