    Pros

    It's a beautiful campus, it was part-time and flexible hours for me. The stipend was great, and gave me an opportunity to work within my field of study with a great professor.

    Cons

    Sometimes the professor was not clear with instructions on my duties or changed his mind when the work was very developed and far ahead. Or he was hard to get ahold of.
