What's the most frustrating thing about University of Southern Mississippi?


I wouldn't say that there is anything super frustrating about this school. It's really great, but one thing that I dont like is when I am late to class and people are trying to stop and talk to me.


Sometimes the most frustrating thing at this school could be not being able to actually afford school, yet you still return each semester hoping that you recieve a grant or scholarship. Another thing could be the cafeteria food, and their lack of variety food choices. Furthermore, school itself can become frustrating because of shool work and sometimes the lack of a social life.


I haven't really run into anything that is frustrating at Southern Miss, except for their method for instruction in mathematics. You do not get to have a regular class despite paying tuition for it; rather, you are relegated to taking an online course in the "Math Zone." You get zero feedback, and help is available in the form of a instructor roaming the Zone but try flagging down an instructor while vying with a couple hundred other students that are also asking for help. It is a travesty.


The most frustrating thing about attending a school like this was the location. Being a musician and living in a smaller town like Hattiesburg did not leave much opportunity for students to perform in the area. I also feel that the school could have done a better job of preparing their students for the world outside of college life.

The most frustrating thing is finding money to help pay for college.


parking!!!! there is absolutely no place to park, and the decals are 150 for one year!! that's ridiculous!!! why would i pay that much just to have to park a mile away from my classes?


When I attended USM, the school was transitioning into a 'walking campus'. I liked the idea of reducing traffic and promoting exercise and safety but it cut down the amount of convenient parking for off-campus students (like me). Also, the campus is huge and very spread out so if you have two classes on opposite sides of the campus, you may find yourself jogging a bit to make it. If this is my biggest complaint then I'm reeeeealy stretching to find something frustrating about my school.
