    Pros

    Everyone on campus is respectful and friendly. Work schedule is flexible. Lots of restaurants within walking distance.

    Cons

    Pay as a graduate student is below the poverty line and so with a car payment, I am almost unable to afford housing.

    Advice to Management

    Housing incentives for graduate students would be great!!!!
