My professors were pretty great, IMO, and some of my classmates were fun to hang out with but I definitely wouldn't consider them too bright. And administration was truly awful - I think that tends to be the common thread for toilet institutions in general. I despised our Dean of Students.
Commiseration. I had a bit of a vendetta with the Dean of Student Affairs, as I was the one Student Gov member who wasn't licking ass and rubber-stamping whatever the admin wanted. My only regret is that I was too dedicated to maintaining a 4.0 and working to be more of a pain in the Dean's ass.
I was in Student Gov too and dealing with administration was an incredibly frustrating task. I gave up after the first semester of my junior year (I also founded Amnesty International campus chapter around that time, so I decided I'd rather dedicate myself to a more gratifying project.)
I totally have a personal vendetta against my Dean of Students. She made me undergo all these testings back in a day to ensure that I wasn't anorexic. I am not going to get into how it came about, but suffice it to say that I've despised her ever since.
And I won't even get into dorms Residence Life - the Assistant Director was a true bitch.
