    I have been working at Clemson University part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Investment in Infrastructure has been a plus. The increase in stipends is also positive. The library, which provides both culture and entertainment options.

    Cons

    Grad students/research could use more support. The increase in tuition was a big disappointment. Issues with parking still persist, with too many cars and too few parking spaces.
