    StarStarStarStarStar Current Undergraduate Research Assistant in Providence, Rhode Island

    There are no benefits for a part time undergraduate research assistant, but that is okay because I only work a couple hours a week and am a full time student.

    The health insurance is great for graduate students, especially Ph.D. students since it is mostly covered by the department or the graduate school (I'm not sure which, but it is covered for sure.)

    best thing: Ivy title. That's pretty much it. In terms of research, probably at the bottom along with Dartmouth among all Ivys

    StarStarStarStarStar Current TA in Providence, Rhode Island

    Teaching assistants do not get benefits packages. But I know that employees and their families are typically well taken care of.

    The best part of Brown is its welcoming and friendly working environment. Everyone around you is supportive and chill and happy. Brown has also passed the unionization.
