University of Michigan-Flint Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?


Lack of cultural events in and around campus.


I would consider the worst thing about my school would be the crimes constantly occuring nearby. This is a very scary thing for a student to have to think about, and getting lost in the area is terrifying.


The cost. I like having some degree of quality that comes with such high costs, but the content of the classes seem to be par with other (read: cheaper) colleges. It seems that mostly what I pay for are the resources and conveniences.


The worst thing about my school is that, though you can find opportunities for collaboration, they are very difficult to find. It requires a level of commitment which may be challenging to an undergraduate student or a new student in general, and they may not even be aware of these opportunities. For instance, as an undergraduate student, I was unaware of the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, most of the study abroad opportunities, various sources of funding, and the merits of the Honors Program. Also, I have very satisfying and helpful mentoring relationships, but they have taken years to develop.


To be honest, the worst thing about my school has nothing to do with the classes or the people. The worst thing about the University of Michigan - Flint is how far apart the William S. White building is from the main campus. When one class is held in the White building and the rest of the classes are not, it gets frustrating to walk all the way across campus through the snow in only a short period of time.


I don't feel s though there is anything bad about the school. It is located in Downtown Flint so its not the best area.


When a semester first starts it's extremely difficult to find parking because there are so many students that all want to park in the same place. As the semester goes on it gets better.


Lack of widespread support, financial aid is basically an office to help you get student loans.


The worst thing about my school is that I wish there were more classes where your whole grade doesn't soley depend on tests because if you are having an off day it can determine the whole pace of your semester and grade.


The worst thing about the school is that there isn't enough time to do everything that the school offers. There are so many great opportunities, and only so many hours in the day...
