Great experience to work with the new generation of leaders.
Peer Coorinator (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDDecember 1, 2014
Pros: free room and board, weekly pay, free use of work out facility, day to day engagement
Cons: loud music at times, monitoring minors in a college environment
A typical work day would present itself with multiple responsibilities including: doing a head count at breakfast(ensures we start the day with every person that belongs in the group) which accounts for every student who is under my supervision. We then go over the following day plan (we stay at least one day ahead of daily schedule and activities. After week1 I perform what is called a counseling – more... session that monitors the progression of each individual student in the pre-college summer program. There is lunch, followed by study hall for all the students. This allows each counselor time to prepare for the evening activities assigned to each counselor's students. The co-workers were excellent. We would have meetings to give eachother ideas and brainstorm issues that may be occurring with the students in or outside of one counselors group. The hardest part of the job was monitoring behaviors of the students at night. Due to the college setting their were multiple attempts of students trying to break the rules. The most enjoyable part of the job was scheduling engaging activities and counseling sessions with my students. In offered me the time to connect with my group and understand them on a intellectual and social level, which made me feel like a huge influence on their progression. – less

Provided me with invaluable experience. The skills that I have acquired as an It technician and lab assistant are still very useful up to this day. My co-workers an my superiors were professional and we really got along very well. Most enjoyable part of the job is basically helping and resolving issues of students as myself.

Coppin State University was an ok place to work. Stayed a contractual employee for almost 7 years.
Administrative Assistant II, Contractual (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: whenever the campus was closed, i was still paid. enjoyed working with most of the folk on campus.
Cons: no health benefits or vaction time.
A typical day at Coppin was busy and extremely stressful.

Brought a great deal of administrative experience to Coppin but, what I did learn was a better understanding of a college/university setting.

Some of management was ok while other were on the money.

Co-workers, a lot of times were very difficult to converse and work with.

Getting information from various offices to complete tasks.

Learning new thing. Being able to come into work a few minutes late and not be scolded.
