The clubs and organizations on campus are great. It is super easy to get involved and make new friends on campus. The parking situation is terrible and parking services is horrible so I would love to see that change. Also there are many professors here who teach hard classes and English is not their first language making it really hard to learn and understand.

I love how close the campus is to my house, and I love my major and the department on campus. The safety around campus could be improved due to the closeness to the downtown area. Transportation from off-campus areas onto campus could also be improved.
