sustainability mentor, Cobleskill, NY - June 1, 2016
The ECO position was a great job to have while living on campus. The work was not too demanding, ECOs at SUNY Cobleskill have 3 office hours/week, 2 hours of building rounds/week and are responsible for creating 5 educational programs/semester pertaining to the environment. The weekly staff meetings were productive and were used to exchange programing ideas and to plan the ECO science fair held once per semester. This position put me up in front of the other residents of my building and improved my public speaking skills, the most difficult part of the job was choosing a good time for each program, around the busy schedules of myself and the other residents. Overall, the ECO job was great and I would return to it in a heartbeat if I still lived on campus.
