What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Rae Yanna

The most frustrating thing about my school is when it is time to register for classes. Students get assigned days and of course freshmen go last. This means all the good classes that you are thinking about will most likely be taken by upper classmen who failed to take the courses they were supposed to register for back in their freshmen or sophmore year.


The most frustrating this is when it rains the creek outside the main campus dorms floods and there is no way to gain access to the classrooms or the dining halls from the dorms and vice versa.


When I tell people where I go to school, no one thinks it's academically excellent since they have never heard of it. If only they came here and saw the teaching and learning going on, they would be able to understand the extent of knowledge we gain as students here. Also, sometimes I feel like some members of the Financial Aid Department are not knowledgeable enough in their field, therefore they cannot give me the proper help to get me enough aid for school.


Some of the general education classes aren't challenging enough and a lot of students either commute or go home on the weekends.


Sometimes the campus safety and police focus more on getting people for underage drinking than the actual safety of students around campus.


I feel the math department is very bad. I think it is holding back the Engineering department by not teaching the required math skills.


It doesn't consider commuter students very much (weather cancellations, resources)


The parking regulations and rules are a little ridiculous, but we're in the process of changing them.


the lack of football team


Hard to get off campus housing


The only thing that I find frustrating is the fact freshman students have to park so far away on West Campus and walk to main campus, especially at night. They do offer shuttle service but sometimes I do not feel that it is safe to always be standing outside waiting for the shuttle alone in the dark.


The amount of work.


The extent to which campus safety will go in order to bust undergrad parties. Additionally, a large majority of the school leaves over the weekends to stay with friends at other schools, thus leaving the campus close to vacant.
