"Teaching University vs. Research University."

I didn't know places like this really existed, otherwise, I might have made a straight line here rather than the long and winding road through high school and a masters to a doctorate at the same time as raising 2 young kids and working full time.

"Who You Work With Is As Important As What You Do."
In higher education, the colleagues you hire will probably get tenure and you'll be stuck with them for a long time. So when picking a department, don't just look at the academic program. Ask if you share the values and interests of the people you would be working with -- especially the younger faculty. Are they people you'd want to spend a lot of time with long term?
