    Why the complaints about dormant clubs rather than making the effort to get one going again?

    Yep ^^. I was super excited about that club and it is sad to know that as an incoming transfer I won't be able to join it for my first year. Yes, I could reopen it but that is not something that should be done before you get a feel of the new school. Freshman typically should be enjoying and exploring different clubs and not forming them, it is about getting comfortable and settled first.

    San Francisco's CSU doesn't have an active LGBT club.

    Financial Aid has never once not disbursed money at least a week late.

    Cops getting called to the university apartment block almost every night.

    Housing staff making me stay with a toxic roommate after I'd called the cops on him twice and gotten pegged as a snitch undeserving of respect in his eyes.

    Housing having no personality questionnaire or anything for roommate assignments.

    Overwork negatively effecting grades not being a valid reason to take a W to drop from 16 to 12 units.

    Housing move out date being the same day as finals, with no extensions given unless you were graduating.



    I moved off campus before Summer semester, and my mental state saw marked improvement. As did my bank account.

    Borderline GPAs and algebra mistakes. 1 or 2 quiz questions are the difference if they get you an A- and you graduate less than a hundreth of a GPA point away from Summa Cum Laude. I mean professor says it doesn't make a difference when you argue for your points back but it does :/

    My department's student lounge has a flyer up for an honor society specific to my major - I was so excited only to then find out that 1) that flyer was stapled in 2006* (when I was literally in elementary school) and 2) hasn't been active since 2008, when the last cohort of inductees graduated. Honor societies seem like weird things to just let disintegrate, especially for a large major. Many smaller majors have honor societies that are very active, so it's a little frustrating, because I'd really like to have a major-specific organization where I can interact with my peers outside of the classroom.

    *In my defense, the flyer doesn't really look that old... It was very well preserved apparently...

    @preamble1776 You should start one up again! A honors society, a social justice organization, and a comedy magazine at my school both rose up from the dead this year because people willing to raise it from the ashes and make it even better took the helm from the previously dead organization

    Oh, here's one. Financial Aid pushing all the Summer loan disbursement dates back when they're already ridiculously late, then not telling anybody. Only found out because I noticed the change looking for something else.

    Isn't that an automatic failure on the exam?

    1. People that complain about a professor being too hard but don't pay attention when in class.
    2. When people act like every other major besides theirs is stupid/easy/pointless
    3. People who talk extra loud in the library...about things not school-related
    4. People that find the "smart people" in their class and suddenly become friendly
    5. Entitled, douchey, and/or cheating student-athletes
    6. When the dining hall opens late or closes early.

    ^ Re: #2...
    By "people" you mean "engineering students," right? :P It's insufferable sometimes...

    @bodangles Amusingly enough, I find those people are mostly freshmen who wash out after realizing that engineering is actually hard. Never seen an upper division engineering student talk like that.
