    I worked at Eastern Kentucky University part-time

    Pros

    If you are a self starter this is the place for you! You can be creative, add to research as well as expose yourself to the wide scope of knowledge that the professors each uniquely provide.

    Cons

    Depending on your focus you may not be challenged. If you want to focus more on the science, only one or two professors will challenge you in that area.

    Advice to Management

    Great department head for graduate assistants in exercise science department st EKU.
