    Pros

    The work study jobs are typically easygoing and they are very understanding of the responsibilities that you have as a student.

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive but you essentially earn what you deserve to. Student jobs are typically just busy work.

    Advice to Management

    Create more jobs on campus for students paying their way through college, and don't cut student jobs as a way to lower costs.

    Pros

    The quality of students is high. Faculty members are highly accomplished. The campus is beautiful with a lost of commitment from the State of Connecticut.

    Cons

    I cannot think of much. Perhaps the University is known to the public only as a great basketball school. The University must make an effort to publicize the research conducted.

    Pros

    Good environment to study and work for your PhD.

    Cons

    Some professors (Research advisors) for PhD students are not professional enough. I have seen partiality shown by the professors among the students in his/her own group.

    Advice to Management

    You need to listen to the student as well.
