I work at Cumberland University and have for 18 plus years. I have enjoyed my time here and continue to enjoy working with my colleagues. I have learned so much from the position I have and continue to grow in my knowledge of Education. I have a much greater respect for teachers now than I ever have.
My typical day is customer service. I am a transcript analyst and sometimes am very busy and other times not so much. I am never at a loss for something to do. My immediate boss is super to work for. He's kind and understanding and knows what it's like to have school-age children and have to be mom or dad sometimes during the workday. And, my officemate, the Administrative Asst. is so enjoyable. We have a good repetoire and enjoy spending our days together in the office.
The hardest part of my job is keeping up with all of the ever-changing rules and regulations of Education. It is constantly changing in one way or another. Just when I think I know what I'm doing, it changes. And, the most enjoyable part of my day is coming to spend everyday with my co-workers. They are some of the best anywhere around. I truly enjoy going to work each day.
This job was great because it helped me to lead student-athletes to achieve their best potential inside and outside the tennis courts. I learned how to be a good leader and how to help others to achieve in a daily basis and also was able to achieve better organizational skills.
the connection daily with each individual and the enjoyment of seeing them achieve success
there was no actually salary, just a full scholarship for my mba.
I worked very hard to get back into a teaching position, and I couldn't ask for a better environment. The students are intelligent and interesting, and I am given autonomy in the classroom to teach my students what they need to know.
Very sociable and fun place to work. I enjoyed working and helping with the young students of Cumberland University.
Resident Life Coordinator (Current Employee) – Lebanon, TN – May 21, 2014
Every morning and night I would conduct a regular building tour for safety inspections and cleanliness of the dormitory. Report to my supervisor and keep him up to date on everything that goes on the building. I assisted residents with any issues they may have had had whether it was a dormitory, educational, or personal issue. Then I would meet with my Residential Assistants to discuss issues, assign nightly duty schedules, and brainstorm possible events or activities to provide for the residents. At the end of each day I would check in with campus security to notify them which of my Residential Assistants were on duty that night. I learned a lot about management with the position I had. I learned how to manage a team of assistants and the residents that lived in the building. The hardest part of the job was coming up with activities for the residents in the building simply because the majority of the residents were student athletes and rarely had time to participate. The most enjoyable part of my job was every time I heard a knock at my door, a resident needed my assistance, and I was able to provide them with all they help that they needed.
free education, free apartment, free meals, great hours

Small private school in a very small town but the atmosphere on campus is amazing. There is always someone there to help you if you have any questions or concerns. The administrative staff is awesome and they like to put their students first.
