    I have been working at University of Colorado Denver full-time

    Pros

    Urban location which is exciting and also attracts a more diverse population of students, plus we share the campus with another college and community college so there are even more diverse students and faculty between the 3 campuses.

    Cons

    Sharing the campus makes it hard to get space and so everything has to be paid for for events... Paying for parking because it's downtown...
