    I have been working at Georgia State University part-time

    Pros

    Great opportunities to get GTA or GRA positions here that pay your tuition and a small stipend!

    Cons

    Not all classes are offered over the summer so if you’re a GTA for a class that isn’t, you need to find another position for the summer (if you plan on taking classes over the summer).

    Advice to Management

    They’re doing great! No complaints.

    I have been working at Georgia State University part-time

    Pros

    You get to work closely with a professor, develop your skills and pick up new one. You also get a partial (40%) tuition waiver.

    Cons

    The stipend is just $500 per month in most cases. It is not sufficient to cover monthly expenses even if you share rooms.

    Advice to Management

    Please increase the monthly stipend so that it atleast covers the living expenses.
