Working at MSU has been a dream! I wish I could work there more. Adjuncts have great ownership over their course content and classroom management. My department has given me the liberty to create and edit my courses as I see fit and continue to develop as the years go on.
The students can be jaded at times and hard to engage but if you can connect with them and reason with them (look i was a student once too, i know its a drag to take quizzes, etc), they tend to be receptive and get their work done for the most part. That's part of your job as a teacher! It's a challenge but rewarding to have students tell you how interesting your course is and how much they learned, etc.
