Good Place to teach
Adjunct Faculty Lecturer (Former Employee), Hamden ConnecticutJune 29, 2013
Pros: samll classes
In my teaching I use amazing ideas every day. Therefore, my role as an educator is to help the students to discover and explore the treasures of the language. Over the past years, I have found that music, movies and games help make the learning process more enjoyable and constructive for both the students and teacher.
Repetition also plays an important – more... role in teaching the Arabic language. Much like other activities like music or sports, students must practice Arabic in order to excel. This is achieved in the classroom through listening and oral exercises, as well as at outside the classroom through further listening and writing exercises. I stress the importance of homework, since it gives students the chance to practice their skills, as well as prepare questions before coming into class. Not only will this enable me to teach each class more effectively, but the students are better equipped to deal with more complex subject matter.
From the very beginning of the class, important conversational phrases are learned and practiced with classmates. By building on these phrases with new vocabulary and grammatical rules, students learn quicker and retain more information while working towards a higher proficiency level in the language.
I also like to teach new vocabulary through cultural examples, so the students are learning both about the language and about the people who use it. By bringing in authentic Arabic food or listening to popular Arabic music, I am able to reach the students on a deeper level while expounding their vocabulary and grasp on the Arabic language.
I am very dedicated, enjoy teaching, always work hard to find suitable materials and make the learning process an enjoyable experience. Teachers and students share the responsibility of creating a dynamic classroom environment. – less

Technology support
Student Technology Academic Resource (Former Employee), Hamden, CTNovember 7, 2012
Pros: helping people, troubleshooting technology, pay raise
Cons: having to create work orders for more difficult problems, mandatory breaks
Providing support for students and staff on a walk in basis. Create work orders as needed. Install and troubleshoot software. Fix printers and copiers. Create work orders for further troubleshooting and reimaging. Management is always available for additonal help. The most enjoyable part is helping people. The hardest part is not being able to solve – more... advanced problems. Worked on the grad campus which was slower. Mandatory 30 minute break after 5 hours. Pay raise after a certain number of hours. – less

Quinnipiac University is a very great place to work, and Campus Security was very professional and well-run
Security Officer (Former Employee), Hamden, CTSeptember 6, 2012
Pros: great staff and procedures in place made it a very easy place to work.
Cons: understaffed
On a typical day, I patrolled the Junior & Senior extension of the main campus as well as the athletic center. It was a wonderful place to work, and I learned a lot about security plans and procedures.

I'd say the most enjoyable part of the job was helping students with whatever various needs they had.

The toughest part was witnessing instances when – more... students were out of hand or disobeying university policies, and I had to take care of the situation. – less

LACK OF DIVERSITY
nothing (Former Employee), hamdenAugust 20, 2012
Pros: small green campus
Cons: discriminative
Quinnipiac University is a small private institution which lacks multi culturalism and awareness for diversity in their staff. Human Resources is very slow and tedious in getting back to potential employees. They are intolerant of applicants with a diverse background. If you are the typical American girl or guy next door your probably a shoe in but – more... only with massive experience, degrees, or if your 50 years of age and above. Human resources does not even have the courtesy to send people replies on their applications or does not give you the time of day to reject you or accept you. They pretty much have you strung on a string from the day you apply to extending to four to six months. They resist follow up calls and follow up from applicants in regards to their applications. Overall they are horrible in their work ethics at human resources and no one says anything about it. – less

Small tightly-knit First-Year Writing Program
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee), Hamden, CTAugust 2, 2012
Pros: strong community
Cons: cramped campus
There is always room to grow in this department if you are willing to do so. Meetings with other adjunct faculty are stimulating and educational. Management is encouraging and rewards hard work. Students are well educated, coursework is stimulating, and class sizes are highly manageable.
