Great professors and staff, administration has the wrong priorities
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee), Windsor, ONNovember 3, 2015
It is extremely hot in many of the buildings because the administration spends money on jackhammering up concrete to pour new concrete instead of upgrading a fifty year old hvac system.

Supportive and welcoming staff among professors and graduates
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee), Windsor, ONAugust 16, 2015
Working alongside the three English professors I was assigned to gave me more than just experience with students and insight into what teaching was like. I was given guidance and advice with my own creative projects, and opportunities I could take for the future. They were also understanding when my personal and school life were becoming overwhelming, which was very appreciated. My colleagues within the graduate students were also welcoming and helpful.

Good experience filled with fun and knowledge
Research Assistant (Former Employee), Windsor, ONJuly 21, 2015
Pros: Can travel to different international conferences(Computer Science)

Research Assisstant is quite a challenging task as we need to balance with academic studies and work schedule. I used to assisst my professor in various jobs. As apart of my job I have learnt many things. I used to assisst a group of research team who works on various project and that experience provided me to have considerable knowledge on various programing languages. As a research assisstant I travelled to various international computer science conferencesthrought out the world where I got opportunity to meet to different people and that helped me to expand my knowledge. The most enjoyable part of my job is that we have to work with a team that experience made me a good team player.

Undergraduate Materials Research Assistant (Current Employee), Windsor, ONMay 10, 2015
Pros: Small classes, Profs get to know you

I did my Mechanical Engineering major at the University of Windsor. As it is a smaller institution than most, your profs get to know you and there's a good mentoring relationship that forms. There's a good amount of opportunities on campus to volunteer and do research.
