Hi, I’m also a dal student (2nd year). Dealing with admin has definitely been easier as a student, if only because you can just go talk to them. Some students have also been frustrated with similar issues. I do think it’s temporary though, all of the administrative staff (who were wonderful) left at the same time last summer, and people who replaced them don’t know the job nearly as well. We’re supposed to be getting 2 of them back from leave soon, meaning things should be much more organized by September.
Lots of context you didn’t need there but basically: yes but it’s temporary
