What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


Nothing at this moment.


Well SNU is a smaller university and, like most schools, there seems to be alot of cliques. When I was searching for a college while I was still in high school I was hoping that SNU would not be like most schools and the environment would be more united and friendly since it is a small school, but I was wrong. That is quite frustrating. Also, eating the same food in the cafeteria every day is frustrating but thats a whole nother story.


The cost of school is the most frustrating thing about it. There are so many amazing opportunities for me to study abroad or go on mission trips but I cannot go on any of them because I am spending all my money on tuition.




The cost. When my mother went to a different college, she says the tuition was about the same cost as the books for the semester. Today, 22 years later, the books are about the same, the tuition 20 times higher. Why? Is my education worth 20 times what hers was? I doubt it...and colleges the nation over just keep getting more expensive. And no, more government grants is not the answer....the prices just increase that much. We need cheaper QUALITY education...somehow.


Sometimes it is bothersome to have many people around that you know.


Athletic full-ride scholarships that take the money away from us that need it and give it to the athletes that don't care about the school or what it stands for and are not held to the "lifestyle covenant" standards, but can get away with things that the rest of us could never get away with. They aren't paying to be here, and they bring down the quality of life for the rest of us.
