Phonathon Caller (Former Employee), Carlisle, PA – December 26, 2013
Pros: free snacks
Cons: short breaks, gets boring
Calling for Phonathon is a wonderful way to engage in the Dickinson community. We get to speak with alumni that share wonderful advice and stories of the college. It also teaches great communication skills in general, and how to properly hold a conversation someone.
Great institution, but campus life seems too obsessed with theory to listen to student's actual needs
Resident Advisor (Former Employee), Carlisle, PA – May 29, 2013
The position was fantastic experience and it did all that the description was billed to. I was able to act as a peer mentor and role model for my fellow students while gaining all sorts of experience in event planning and community building. It seemed that the campus life full-time staff was a bit too obsessed with making changes based on theory for – more... the sake of making changes, rather than effectively assessing what the needs of the student body were and reacting appropriately to them. – less
Research Intern (Former Employee), Carlisle, Pennsylvania – May 28, 2013
Pros: schedule, boss, compensation
It was great working for Dickinson College. My advising professor was actively involved and flexible. She allowed for the interns to control their own schedule and research, while demonstrating great interest in the students work. As research interns we were challenged mentally by her on a daily basis driving our further academic development.
