I worked at University of North Alabama part-time (Less than a year)
Safe and friendly location, near the beautiful Tennessee River and downtown Florence, AL, which is small but lively. Big annual blues and Renaissance festivals. Great restaurants and shops within walking distance of campus.
Under-resourced chemistry department. Low pay for adjuncts (that's nothing new anywhere). Lecture and lab courses could be better coordinated. Not enough healthy food options on campus. Some parts of campus don't feel entirely safe at night.
Advice to Management
Please heat the labs adequately! Coordinate pre-lab lecture and lab spaces so that they are physically closer to one another. Give adjuncts the entrance keys to department offices, so they can access it on weekends.
