Southern Utah University is an excellent school for those students who want an easy transition between high school and college. To say what the worst thing was about the school is a very personal opinion and largely based on each individuals experience. What I consider to be the worst thing about my school would be the limited number of class times available for some of the classes. I have had difficulties in creating my schedule because some of the classes I need to take only have one time for it offered and they are at the same time as other classes.
The thing I would consider to be the worst at this school would be lack of advertisement for events in all areas of campus. Sometimes the information is not put in or by all buildings which can be frustrating but not unchangable.
I would say the worst thing about my school is the lack of textbooks that are required for my courses. When the bookstore runs out of the textbooks I need for my courses, I have to special order and wait a few days later for my book to come at the store. Just a few weeks ago, I special ordered my textbook for college algebra, but a week after I special ordered my book, the bookstore said to me they never received an order from me. Fortunately, the situation was resolved and I got my book after another week later.
There is very little diversity, and a strong emphasis on the Mormon religion.
I haven't had a chance to experience this at other Universities other than what friends and family have told me, but one thing that I would like to be different about SUU is an increase of excitement with the sporting events. I have been to BYU football games, and other varoius sporting activites and the energy and excitement in those arenas is incredible! I would love to be able to experience more of that at SUU.
The general education classes seem to be a waste of time and money. There are very little expectations in them.
It seems petty, but I wish we had a better student center/student hang-out. The Sharwan Smith Center is great in its own right, but something completely detached from the offices and everything would be better. Also I've had trouble with the internet connection on campus, making it difficult to get my online work turned in on time.
The worst thing is that they don't support their students financially even when they are doing very well in school. I have a very high GPA and yet they offer no financial aid and when you go to them for help support your education they show no response or sympothy. That to me is very disappointing. They need to support the academic success in the school more.
I have not found anything about my school that I don't like yet.
The lack of close parking spaces.
I think the worst part about SUU is that people do not go to all the actvities I am very involved and on the planing board but for some reason the students just don't show up. I wish that more student would get out events. I wish that the student government worked harder to help the freshman feel welcome at the events.
I don't think that the Student Government necessarily makes the best decisions for the student body. Most of the time student funds get allocated to sports, sports, sports, and smaller campus groups can easily get neglected, or if they get money at all, it's usually after a big fight with the assembly delegates. It sort of discourages social activity among the clubs on campus.
The worst aspect of SUU is that is wants to give many opportunites to its students, but doesn't have the resources it needs to do so. The school has the spirit of a large school but the budget and opportunities of a large school.
The worst thing about my school is that summer school is very hard and expensive. Student aide usually doesnt help pay for it. That means it is harder to graduate early. Also It is very hard to get a job at the school.
I would consider the food the worst thing about the school. There aren't many options, and the options don't always taste too good.
One thing that is a worst aspect of our school and really gets to me is that the school is run by older people. So all our advisors, while they are experts in their field, seem to have trouble keeping up with us and fully helping us efficiently. It would help to see more younger people helping and learning with the older ones in helping with planning and advising duties and activities.
ummmm......I don't know if I have anything I don't like about the school.
I feel like not very many of the classes prepare students for the "real world". It's not challenging enough. Weeks before graduation my final classes were a joke. I thought "I'm never going to get a job because I don't know anything." I didn't know anything because the professors don't tell you how to use the information practically.
The worst thing about SUU would have to be the sports. SUU is definitely not known for its athletics and therefore they are not supported as well as they could be. I would like to see the athletic programs supported more, but I also would support them more if they did better.
The amount of money needed to purchase books.
The football team is terrible, I don't find it worth my time attending football games. I hate how on Saturdays the library opens at 11. I want to study earlier and I think it should open at 9 or something, that goes for the student body fitness center as well.
The worst thing about Southern Utah University is the lack of political diversity...But after all, we are in Very conservative Utah.
The School is wonderful, however the city is small and there is no place to shop but Wal-Mart. Going to local grocery stores is really expensive. It would be nice to have more then Wal-Mart as well as other retail. There is also not much to do but go to the movie theater. Outdoor activities are common, however not everyone enjoys hiking and going to the national parks. Its kind of a dead place.
The worst thing about my school is probably the fact that we only have about seven thousand people at our school.
