I enjoyed working with ASOIT when I was attending OIT.
Pros: teamwork, equality, free lunches, retreats
As the Freshman Senator, I was in charge of planning/hosting freshman focused events. The purpose of my job was to assist my fellow classmates in answering any questions they had about the school, to host events that they could meet upperclassmen, faculty and other freshman, and to have provide input as a freshman to the other officers. During my work with ASOIT I learned how to put on events, how to work as a professional team, a numerous amount of respectable faculty and bright students, and I learned a lot of information about OIT as a school. Our team was set up to treat one another as individual positions. Rather than a hierarchy, we all specialized in our positions. We had advisers in the group that were available to help us with any questions or concerns, but for the most part, we were responsible for ourselves. This gave us all a great opportunity to learn the values of integrity and self-sufficiency. The hardest part of the job was learning the information I needed to know to help my fellow classmates. Many of the questions they had for me, I didn't know when I was hired on to the position. I had to brainstorm and answer my own questions before another asked me. The most enjoyable part of my positions as Freshman Senator was meeting the people I did and working with the team this year. Teamwork has been my favorite part of any job, sport, or group I have joined.
