MATHEMATICS TUTOR/TEACHING ASSISTANT (Current Employee), Statesboro, GA – June 26, 2014
Pros: relaxed environment for learning.
Cons: limited hours
A typical day at work consists of me sitting in a computer lab of about 100 computers and students come in for help with mathematical concepts. I am required to know everything from College Algebra through Calculus 2, but I also know Intro Statistics & Calculus 3. I have learned many ways to bring others to a complete understanding. My coworkers & I – more... work together if we are presented with a topic we may not be 100% sure of, but we all have the goal of helping the students. All of my coworkers are undergraduate & graduate students. I enjoyed seeing the smile on the student's face one the lightbulb went off in their head. – less
Student Technician (Former Employee), Statesboro, GA – June 9, 2014
Pros: breaks and weekends off.
Cons: time allowed to work.
Working for Georgia Southern as a student is the best decision a full-time student can make. They are student and class schedule friendly and make sure that you are still able to have a college career. You are limited to the amount of hours you can work but it is beneficial when it comes to getting your degree. I would recommend any student to find – more... an on-campus job. – less
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee), Statesboro, GA – June 9, 2014
I assisted the Human Resources professors in conducting research. They really pushed me to understand the methodology behind what they were doing, and what it would mean if their hypothesis was correct. It was an enjoyable experience, as the professors were eager to help me not only with their research, but also with any difficulties I may have had – more... in my Master's level courses. – less

Research Assistant - Mechatronics (Former Employee), Statesboro, GA – May 13, 2014
This work was voluntarily carried out to research the capabilities of a mobile phone integrated with the increasingly popular Arduino MCUs. Typical prototyping work was independently carried out, and would result in late hours after class sifting through lines of codes or with a multimeter checking for correct wiring. I was overseen by a professor, – more... who urged me to keep relevant logs and a record of all software versions to ensure stability. The work had a steep learning curve and much of the material, such as developing in Java, was new and had never been formally learned. The work was very rewarding, opening up mechatronic system application ideas that I would like to pursue as a hobby or for industrial applications. – less
Fast paced environment with an enormous team of caring individuals
Student Financial Aid Asst. II (Current Employee), Statesboro, Ga – April 24, 2014
Cons: no raises, no free parking, expensive health care
I verify incoming documents from the parents and students of the Georgia Southern University and award them as needed.
I also am efficient in adjusting the student loans by either reducing or adding additional funds to their budget as needed.
I answer incoming phone calls and discuss the students financial plan or any other issues involving financial – more... aid.
The most enjoyable part of my day and job as a whole I is defintely the interaction with people. I love working with people and meeting new people I think that in itself is an experience that helps shape and mold ones character.
The hardest part of my job I'd have to say is watching our work study students that we hire go throughout college and watching them leave. We are a close knit family here at Southern I would defintely encourage anyone to apply for a job there. – less
FULL TIME STUDENT (Former Employee), Statesboro, GA – April 7, 2014
Classes were fantastic and there were many things to do when you had down time outside of class. I was in the College of Liberal Arts and I focused on Management and Marketing. Couldn't have asked for a better 5 years. I learned so many things and I would suggest attending this university to anyone looking to get a degree.
