If you want extra money in your pockets, then it's the place to work. They don't pay students to work over 20 hours or financial aid fires you. It's a lot of work (depending on where you work) for little pay.

Southern Illinois University is a wonderful place to learn and work. As compared to other campuses it is a close knit community where most staff and students know each other in their respective areas of research : i.e. department and or major.
Everything is within walking distance no need to use a car, Mild winters and overall an affordable area to live.
Many students on campus that are drunk or on drugs; however that can be said of any college campus.

Undergraduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Carbondale, IL – August 3, 2016
The job offered the learning experience I desired and opportunity to study a field I found interesting, but the job was too short lived to contribute or gain anything significant. The "budget crisis" in Illinois led the university to cut the undergraduate research assistant program, among other cuts. Aside from that, communication was a little weak from the coworkers.
Good pay, potential to grow, potential to contribute
