      Great Place for those who like to read and write books

      Pros

      Very Small Classes - half my teaching is from books that I wrote years ago. Only three courses a year - Two in One Semester and One if the Other About 7 months teaching and 5 months off per regular PLUS sabbaticals with 0 months teaching. NOT a great place for a humanist to get rich; but a Great place to do what you like to do. I may NEVER retire.

      Cons

      In my Department, (almost) all of the graduate students are doctoral students get PAID to get their degrees- and never pay anything. But, many of the undergraduate students, especially many from the USA, graduate with demoralizing debt. This is true of almost all very well-know private research universities in the USA - but then, at almost all of these places, there's a bad thing going on.
