Excellent place to grow both professionally and academically. The best years of my life!
Graduate Student Assistant Communication Studies (Current Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – April 20, 2016
My time at Liberty University has been one of the most gratifying experiences of my life. I met the best people among my coworkers, it felt like a safe and joyful environment. In the past 6 years I've had three bosses, to whom I owe so much of my professional growth. With their hard work and dedication, they showed me what it is to be a good leader and motivated me to constantly strive for excellence.
There is no organization that is perfect but from my experience my bosses were always open to change and new ideas. They valued me as a person and as an employee.
The hardest part of the job wasn't the job itself. It was juggling work with being a full time student. This experience taught me how to work under pressure in order to meet deadlines, and how to manage my time well and still go above and beyond.
The most enjoyable part of being a GSA in particular was having the opportunity to teach younger generations about the fascinating communication field. Trying to constantly be creative and come up with new ways to engage my students and help them learn, made me utilize all my journalism,marketing, & PR skills. Also, you become a family with the rest of the GSA team and fellow graduate students.
