The inability of the administration to take student needs and wants into account when making decisions.
I think the most frustrated I ever felt was dealing with the Cashier's office, which doesn't communicate so well with the Financial Aid office, or the office of the Registrar. I felt like I was just a go-between, and such ridiculous amounts of legwork between offices on the same floor of the same building was a little unreasonable. This isn't to say that the staff themself weren't very friendly - certain among them were really great and helpful.
Currently the administration seems out of touch with the student body.

The lack of support for athletics. Also, if people aren't doing well in school, they tend to be shunned instead of being helped.
