What I would consider the worst thing about my school is probably the size of the university and the surrounding town of River Falls. When I first toured perspective universities I was drawn towards universities with a smaller population size of undergraduate students. This is what attracted me to River Falls which had the small town and campus atmosphere. After completing my first semester I have realized that I am missing out on the true college experince that comes with the bigger universites.
The worst thing about my campus is the athletic facilities. The football stadium is old and not worthy of a college football team. We also dont have much for a soccer field. It is much more like a patch of grass behind the football stadium than a place to play soccer. I think that after new athletic facilities are built a wider variety of students will be drawn to this school. In the end, this will benefit everyone involved with UW-River Falls.
Since my college is located in a small town, many students assume there is nothing to do on campus for fun besides drinking. Although, I have chosen to not take part in drinking or partying, it is still remains a part of the college atmosphere. While I have found plently of extra-curricular activities that do not involve drinking, it bothers me that my school has the reputation of being a "party school."
The worst thing about UWRF is that because classes are so small, usually 30 people or less, It's sometimes hard to get into the classes you want to. Registering for classes is based on senoirity and whether or not the class will count toward your degree. It's hard to develop a diverse skill set when classes are so small. People that desperatly need the class will most likely always get first pick.
The thing i disliked about high school was the fact that there was only one advanced placement history class. I feel that social sciences are the most important part of school and we just didn't have engouh compared to the large number of shop and gym classes. Although I took as many history classes as they offered i felt that they were just not that in depth.
I think the worst thing about the school is that many people go home to work on the weekends! There are plenty of available jobs in the area, and many exciting things to do on campus. I think it's because many of the students here are very close to their families, and take the time on the weekend to visit home.
The worst thing about this school would have to be how available the advisors are. My advisor takes a long time to respond to my e-mails or help me with a situation and it can get rather frustraitng. But other then that it has turned out to be a good place of broadening your horizons, in a learning sense.
J-term (no classes for about a month after christmas) and being sort of forced to stay out of the dorms during these breaks. Basically having to move out or else pay an extra fee to stay during these breaks.
The availibility of parking on campus- many people feel that it is insufficient, especially for commuter students, as many people struggle to find parking near campus.
I would have to say it is the fact that some professors discriminate against agricultural majors which doesn't make sense because it is an agricultural based school.
