      Pros

      I've been at the University for almost two years. One of my favorite things is the passion that the staff has for what they do--from the gentleman who cares for the greenery, to the President, people get excited about what they do and do it with pride. Nearly every person that I've met and worked with is kind, smart, and proud to be part of the institution. As a place that began it's story with a commitment to diversity and inclusion, offering professional development and career opportunities for women, at a time when that wasn't common at all. Overall, we do what we say we will do.

      Cons

      College students are hard to come by. In our region, there's a lot of competition for college students. Without college students, we don't have the budget we once had.
