big campus
works from 9am to 5 pm.
Many types of equipment can be used.

it was aweful
I would not recommend it for anyone. They did not care if I was doing well or even feeling emotionally well. They will take anyone for a teaching assistantiship because they need a warm body and they will let you do miserably just so they don't have to pay someone a living wage to do the job.

Underpaid
Part time faculty are always underpaid and under estimated. We have no benefits but yet we are the backbone of the department.
Part timers that are on step 3 should be given the chance to become full time
