    Pros

    Great scholarship funding, extremely affordable. Very small class room sizes, and professors are always willing to help.

    Cons

    Not enough diversity at all. The school is prominently white. TCU has been working hard to improve the ratio though.

    Advice to Management

    More diversity would be great.

    Pros

    Working as a student on campus was wonderful! I was able to schedule around my classes and extracurriculars, and work full-time during the summer. Speaking with other student-workers, it seems like my experience was fairly typical. Regardless of the office or department, the on campus employers give good experience while respecting the importance of school.

    Cons

    The only con I had was low pay (minimum wage). Considering it was for part-time work, and my other options since I was in school were mostly retail, this wasn't a big deal.
