Getting into the classes you need as an underclassman.

The city of Slippery Rock doesn't have enogh sociable place where young folks can hang out, meet up, make friends beside on-campus and a few spot that are complecent because they do not feel any completition.

Stacie

Thank alot of teachers dont give a dame about you, they would rather go to GHT and meet with you at their satilite office!

Erik

The most frustrating thing about school right now is the frequency with which the equipment here seems to need maintenance. It is disheartening to constantly be scrounging for the materials necessary to complete what I need to complete for my classes.

Amandalee

The athletic trainers do their best to help the student athletes but there needs to be more.

Larissa

The most frustrating thing about school is financial probems. Slippery Rock is a very expensive school and they don't give a lot of financial aid or at least I haven't received any. Money is the biggest problem with college, especially when you are out of state and have those fees are added to your tution.

Laura

The most frustrating thing about my school is the weather. Since we are in Slippery Rock Pennsylvania, we are often hit with rain that lasts for a month and terrible snow storms. We also face very cold temperatures. Sometimes I feel as though we are in a hole because there is almost always precipitation here and I'm not sure why. This can make it very unpleasant to walk to class at times. Despite the weather, I still love attending school here. It is just important to invest in an umbrella, a good coat and some boots.

Jordan

Having other people in your study groups that aren't as motivated and dedicated as you are. You have to learn to deal with them the right ways.

Melissa

i hate the snow

Felicia

I think that as a whole, Slippery Rock University is an outstanding campus with many htings to offer its students. However, there seems to be a division between ethnicities, even thought the campus and organizations do many things to enhance unitiy between races, there is still a division that i feel is prominent.

Shaunea

The most frustrating thing about Slippery Rock University is that there are not a lot of restaurants nearby. In order to eat at places other than McDonald's or Sheetz, you need to drive at least 15-20 minutes to Grove City. Also, the closest Wal-Mart is 15-20 minutes away, so that is not convenient either.

Trish

There are not enough parking spaces. A lot of the professors do not speak english very well

Jordan

The most frustrating thing about the school is registration, because it is an added stress, and unlike other schools, advisors do not do registration for us.

Sarah

The most frustrating thing about my school would have to be the professors. There are many good professors here at Slippery Rock, however, there are not so good ones. I have had a professor who repetitively gave tests with answers that don't correspond; I have had a professor who spent the class period watching health movies from the '70s without doing any actual teaching; and I have had professors who gave A's to favorites. Basically, some professors here know that they run the show. I think that most people here would agree.

Laura

There are a lot of things that happen duting your college experience. I've had a few of them with finiancial sitations and roommates staying on campus so I don't have to worry about next semester. I think the most frustating thing though is scheduling. It is almost impossable to get the classes you need unless you are the first person to schedule. Even if you have your major, the classes are most likely to be filled if you go the second week of scheduling. If you have a major and your classes are full, there's nothing else.

Misty

Is how the some of the teachers dont want to work with students who have disablits and are not really worried about trying to find aways to help them and when trying to talk to the president of the school he just passes you on to someone else that cant help because they choice not to its just geting the run around
