    Pros

    the program was community focused and provided a variety of opportunities to evolve as a student, was understanding of student - RA balance, and willing to be flexible.

    Cons

    - while I was appreciative of the allotted amount that was given to RAs for meal plans, it may've been helpful to receive a little more compensation in this area to sustain one's nutritional needs
