Graduate Research Assistant/Asst. Editor (Former Employee) – Lawton, OK – May 22, 2013
A typical day would entail reviewing academic papers from professors across the country who desire publication in the journal. For example, I would have to edit the papers including the references to ensure correct style. In addition, I would research and prepare presentations on projects such as the consumer price index. I did not only assist the professors with grading the examinations, but also assisted with invigilation of them. I developed my critical thinking skills even more as well as management skills as a result of the different projects such as business forums we helped to present. These projects allowed me to better cultivate the software available. Most of the my duties necessitated working with colleagues to ensure the success of the project. I learned to to delegate to ensure quality use of time and skills. The hardest part of the job was balancing my work life with my student life since I had a full complement of classes.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the autonomy and empowerment I had to complete and initiate the projects.
development of management, research, and critical thinking skills
Patrol Officer (Former Employee) – Lawton, OK – December 4, 2014
Over all daily activities were patrolling the campus learning where everything was at. Securing the buildings when needed. I learned that a college campus is a completely different environment than that of working a city as an officer. Co-workers were great to work with and could be depended on when needed. Hardest part of the job would be having to work the holidays when everyone else is home with their family and friends. Working all hours of the day and night depending on what shift your assigned to. The best part of the job was meeting different types of people on campus both students and faculty. It was for the most part a very relaxed and fun place to work.
watching how the students were able to better their lives and make something of them selfs.
ITS Technician (Former Employee) – Duncan, OK – November 21, 2012
The staff are great. The Director of the Duncan campus is very difficult for which to work as she does not understand a tech's personality and way of thinking. She is a micro-manager. If you like providing support to students, faculty and staff (all with varying levels of technology knowledge), it's a great opportunity. The benefits are fantastic. The pay is not anywhere compariable to the corporate world. Educational instutions are not about pay, but about helping those attending to better themselves. The main campus ITS/ITV staff are very supportive and fantastic. Position does require a great degree of confidentiality. I was able to update and access systems using remote viewing software. Some computers are maintained in a software locked environment.
Department Secretary (Current Employee) – Lawton, OK – July 22, 2014
Cameron is a great place to work that offers a great benefit package. The interaction with the many cultures is always a pleasure. The management is also to notch. The hardest part of my job is when a student is having a hard day and even after listening and trying to help with the issue, you couldn't resolve the issue. The best part of my job is the interaction between the instructors and the students. There is always something diffrent everyday.
the campus is beautiful and the facilities at the gym/pool are great!

Administrative Assistant II (Current Employee) – Lawton, OK – April 12, 2013
Cameron University provides a lot of different activities, that will keep you on your toes. It is a very fun, respectful, and organized business. The pay scale is on the low end for certain positions, but you do get FULL MEDICAL that you do not pay for so that makes up for the lack of pay per hour.

Working for Cameron University was fun. Staff is well taken care of except for pay. There is a major difference between support staff and other employees. The benefits are great! Company paid you can't beat that.
