University of St Francis Top Questions

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


The worst thing about St. Francis is that it has a very small campus. While this can be nice because it means shorter walks, there is less space to do stuff on campus.


The worst thing about my school is limited parking. Parking is not that big of an issue but is the worst thing about my school.


I think the worse thing is that most of the school is commuters so not to many people are around on the weekend, but in the long run it doesnt mattter because you can find fun things to do in Joliet or take the train into Chicago.


I think one of the worst areas in my school is the lack of internships available. There should be more intrapersonal connections intertwined with a student's major.


Parking! There is very little parking for commuting students on campus.


The worst thing about the University of St. Francis can be defined by one word: parking. Students have to pay for a parking permit in order to park in the campus parking lots. This permit does not guarentee that the student will get a parking spot though. That is the problem. There are more students with cars than parking spots. I had some afternoon classes last semester and had to arrive early in the morning in order to park in the main lot. Show up later in the day and you will most likely have to park many blocks away.


Alot of people leave the school i attend on the weekends.


The worse thing at this school is that there is almost no diversity. There are almost no African Americans, but the ones that do attend this school are here for either football or basketball. They should recruit more students academically. There are also not that many hispanics, and the one that are there play soccer. There are also not that many asians. Diversity broadens a students outlook on life and without it, stereotypes begin.


I wish USF had more gym space. We have a lot of potenitially good athletics teams but there is never enough room for us to practice. Coaches are always fighting for gym time and it is not fair to which ever team gets left out.


I don't have a list of where all the important offices are located like financial aid. Where is some food located? Parking is the absolute worst. I have a hard time finding parking.


A lot of the time I feel as if the food is the worst part about living at school. Students have next to no control over what we are eating. Although it's not, it can sometimes feel as if we are eating the same thing over and over again. The majority of what we eat is not very healthy either compared to what we might choose for ourselves at home. I know I miss and appreciate my moms cooking a lot more since I have been living at school.


My school is phenomenal there is not one bad aspect.


Since this is a small school, it has a small faculty, so if you get a professor you don't like in your major, odds are you'll have the same professor again.


Dealing with the financial aid office. Even though they try to have all students complete all necessary paperwork, I have always found myself running around at the beginning of the academic year to get my aid in order.


The lack of extra-curricular activities


The worst part about my college is that a lot of people do not live on campus. I think it would be better if most people did live on campus because it would give further opportunity for people to get to know eachother and maximize the feeling of a community.


the worst thing about my school is the lack of diversity. there are not enough minority students or faculty.


The worst thing about my school is the fact that it feels as if you are sinning if a swear word is said anywhere on or around campus because it is a Catholic school.


I do love this school. However, the one thing I don't like is that we are required to have a certain number of hours of community service done by the time we graduate. I feel like this isn't a good use of our time. I don't think students who aren't into service will take it seriously, and I also think that it can be difficult to find a place that you can get your hours done in. I'm a commuter working two jobs and going to school, so it can be a difficult situation.


The worst part about my school was the parking situation because there was not enough parking!!


The grading scale for nursing students. ANything less than a 77{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} is failing and as a nursing student, you are not able to fail any nursing courses or repeat them because this will result in a drop from the nursing program.


The worst thing about this school is the cost, it is very expensive.


There is limited parking avaiable, and it is in a residental neighborhood. So must student wind up parling in front of houses or walking far to get to campus.


Parking. We are located in a historical district and are unable to build a parking garage. Our parking lot is one level and can get a bit crowded for commuters.
