30 Things the Tech Community Don’t Like About University/College

Here are a few of their answers:

  • Assignments
  • Being bullied
  • Books
  • Exams
  • Group work
  • Having to attend the classes
  • Having to listen to a professor read the PowerPoint
  • Having to memorize books
  • Having to wake up way too early (leaving away from the premises)
  • Lazy professors
  • Late lab classes
  • Lecture on weekends
  • Loneliness
  • Maturity of other students
  • Other subjects except for tech subjects
  • Postponing class last minute
  • Presentations
  • Slow workstations
  • Statistics / Maths
  • Studying
  • Stress, anxiety
  • The administrators
  • Tuition
  • Unrelated courses
  • Very long lectures

And some answers that are unique… :

  • That morning coffee with a weird taste
  • Waking up hungover and then promising yourself you’ll never drink again, just to run into some more friends that tell you there is another party on….right outside your bedroom.
  • Hostel food (← wouldn’t be easier and in the long term cheaper to rent a place than going to a hostel?)
  • Shaving every day (← this is something I don’t get… as we don’t have it in my country… you can attend the university however you like…)

Maybe the most common answer was:

  • The college itself.
