    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Southern Illinois University full-time

    Pros

    SIU is a great school for graduate studies. As a nationally ranked research university, you have enormous resources at your disposal and opportunities to excel in your chosen field of study. Graduate Assistant have full tuition waiver.

    Cons

    The stipends isn't too great, and graduate students pay relatively high student fees which takes more than a quarter of the gross stipends earned in a semester.

    Advice to Management

    Either increase the stipends substantially or cut down on the student fees paid by graduate students in order to attract the best students.
