What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


The most frustrating thing about my school would have to be the parking. During the winter and summer it's a little beter but, during spring and fall it's a headache. With over 30,000 students atending this school, there should be more parking availible for the students.


The most frustrating thing is probably the lack of parking. I, therefore, decided to always ride the bus or walk. The free bus system has been a life saver now. The crowds are parking are a bit much to handle, though. I recommend walking, biking, or using the bus.


for me the most fusrating thing is the projects from each classes have veryh close due dates.


As stated above with a weak social atmosphere, having not too many friends was frustrating for me. The people that you meet in class are the people who are classmates not friends with real relationships.


Truthfully, the most frustrating thing about my school is the parking. There aren't a lot of parking structures and therefore finding a parking space is difficult.


PARKING! You pay $88.00 for parking in a semester and it doesn't even guarentee you a spot. They have a shuttle service that comes by surrounding campuses about every 15 minutes to an hour (depending on the day and time) that will take you to the main campus. There is no city parking around campus because you must have a city permit, so there is no parking on the streets.


The most frustrating thing about my school is the Financial Aid department. Nobody seems to know what is going on in that office, the help desk is rushed and confused at times. The phone service is even worse; nobody pics up. Asking that department for help is like pulling teeth. Painful.


The most frustrating thing about my school is that sometimes there is not enough parking space. Although there are street parking, the students have to pay for the parking meters. Other than that, I don't see much frustration about my school.


I don't like the fact that some students don't take school seriously.


not being able to qualify for financial aid to help me out with school needs.
