    Pros

    Geography Department front office staff are wonderful! Library resources extremely helpful, with ability to access from anywhere, at any time. Campus bus makes it easy to get around on campus or downtown for lunch.

    Cons

    Tuition is only $25 for grad assistant, but fees continue to increase each year and currently around $900 semester. Not all grad assistant get paid the same; when first being accepted to department you might have some ability to negotiate.

    Advice to Management

    Campus organizations applying for student activities fees should be allowed to use this to defray group travel costs to professional meetings to present their work.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at University of Georgia (Athens, GA).

    Interview

    The interview process began with a phone interview then proceeded to an on campus interview. The process was very structured and very well organized. My experience was amazing and everyone was very helpful. Everyone I spoke to seemed very positive and welcoming with the exception of one person. It seemed there was some internal conflict around the type of candidates being considered. Despite this, I think I was given a fair chance to show that I was a good fit. The entire process took about a month once I was contacted and about 2 months from when I applied.
