    I have been working at Columbia University


    I didn't TA for the core, but for a departmental class instead, which I think is a very different experience. My workload was manageable, the professor was communicative, and most of the students were easy to work with as well.


    Nothing really comes to mind, I would have liked to have a log in to access computers within the department, making it easier to print out materials for the class.
