    Pros

    There is a variety of job opportunities on campus for undergraduate and graduate students who want to earn extra money while attending the university.

    Cons

    Please learn to communicate to each other and respond to questions on a timely basis and not sporadically. Waiting for weeks for someone to email you back with a question about education or employment is unprofessional and frustrating.
