    The only con I'll give to being a personal trainer at SUNY Cortland will be the wages.

    Pros

    Lead labs on own, some very interesting subject matter.

    Cons

    intro to psych class was considered very vigorous, discouraged rather than challenged some students. Some psych teachers had a 'memorize the book' philosophy.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on learning. Memorization is part of this, but not all. Treating students more fairly, while still challenging them, could reduce drop-out rates and student antagonism that takes certain forms. Of course, some academic issues are preexisting before a student attends Cortland. Some instruction from professors in dept based on personal, rather dogmatic opinions rather actual facts, which is a disservice.
