An amazing working environment. Encourages you to be creative and innovative.
Programming Coordinator, Intercultural Center (Current Employee), Willimantic, CT – November 21, 2013
A typical day at work consists of sitting down with staff members and brainstorming ideas. We also find creative ways to promote and execute quality diverse programming for Eastern Connecticut State University.
I've learned that there is a great need for intercultural centers on diverse college campuses to help raise cultural awareness.
My supervisor – more... puts full trust in me when it comes to programming ideas, dealing with budgets, as well as suggestions on new hires.
The most challenging part of the job is coming up with new and innovative programs for the student body. With this job you must be flexible, while being assertive when dealing with different styles of programming.
The best part of this job is the feeling you have when underrepresented students tell you that your program has helped make them feel noticed on Eastern's campus. – less

A beneficial job to carry as a student , great learning experience
Resident Assistant (Former Employee), Willimantic, CT – September 11, 2012
Being a student of the University and working for the housing department was an extremely beneficial position. It allowed me to take on further responsibility and taught me how to balance all aspects of life ( personal, professional,& academic). It prepared me for what job/career paths maybe like after college. It was a learning and most of all growing – more... experience. Many if not all aspects I encountered within the position of Resident Assistant are still very relevant and have helped in other work experiences I have had. – less
