    Good opportunities to work at national laboratories with renowned scientists. good mentorship between professors and students. Also good teaching experience. Good dealing with undergraduates

    there is a very poor alumni network. The career center is not very helpful. The city of Arlington is not very vibrant. It does not give a good sense of college community.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building apartment buildings around the campus area. This will boost recreational activities around. You need things like dance clubs, not just bars. Some students would want to go out and dance sometimes.

    I worked at University of Texas at Arlington part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to do my own research was given by my advisor, so I was able to choose my own area of research.

    Cons

    The pay to Graduate Teaching Assistants and Graduate Research Assistant varies widely: from measly to respectable. Health insurance coverage was non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    The load of work on Graduate Teaching Assistants varies widely. When a graduate teaching assistant teaches a whole class then it seems fair to pay them the adjunct faculty salary.
