    Pros

    Tulane offers a lot of opportunities for students to work on campus, whether you have work study or not. If you're lucky, you can even get a job in your field doing research or working with a professor. There are job opportunities everywhere, from the recreational center to the library, that pay decent wages. Some even offer opportunities for advancement, which can be pretty rare for a student job.

    Cons

    If you're a science major, there will be a lot of opportunities for you to work with professors. If you are anything other than a science major, it will be much harder to find a similar opportunity. They exist, there are just less of them.

    Pros

    Great location, great people to work with. Students are bright and motivated. Most departments are very easy to work with in terms of scheduling, etc.

    Cons

    Administration is unorganized and does not cooperate between departments well. Good intentions from the top, but mid-level management is unorganized and often made up of people who don't seem to care.
