Pros: lifelong friends, friendliness, helpfulness, learning experience
Cons: amount of hours that fit my class schedule
A typical day at work at the Psychology Department at Farmingdale State College is both friendly and a very good learning experience. Being a psychology major, I am able to communicate well with all of my professors as well as my co-workers, who are psychology students as well. I've learned so much from all of the staff here and I'm beyond grateful for my position as a work study. I've never had experience with answering phones before and taking messages and this job experience gave me that opportunity to open up more. The hardest part of my job was honestly saying goodbye. These people have been my family for the past two years and before I started as a work study here I can honestly say that I struggled with my grades. I was able to pick up my GPA from a 2.9 to a 3.5 because of the help and assistance I received here. They made my learning experience and college experience better than I could ever imagine and helped me pick the direction in life that I truly want.
