    Overall Experience: The lack of support for sports that are not cared about as much is very frustrating. Girl's sports in general do not get the funding or support they deserve. Many of the athletic directors are focused on the popular boys sports and put all their time and effort into them. They always forget about other sports and lack communication unless its a sport they care about. Like boys football and basketball, which we suck at anyways.

    Food: They claim that healthy alternatives are fat free foods or "lite" options. which really just frustrates students because they cant eat what they want. It's better for you to eat what you want in moderation. Not overloading with diet products full of chemicals.

    Sports & Fitness: I think we have really nice areas to exercise and practice sports in. Although some sports are factorized over others, so some sports do not as high quality equipment and space.
