Civic Engagement Student Coordinator (Current Employee), Ashland, ORApril 21, 2014
I have loved working with the Civic Engagement Program at Southern Oregon University. At times it seems that we should have more to do, but then the event rolls around and I wonder how I ever thought we needed more. The program, the people, the activities are all something that I would recommend to everyone!

Student Services (Former Employee), Ashland, ORMarch 13, 2014
Pros: gained much life knowledge/book knowledge
Cons: had to leave for the "real world"
Each day was filled with learning about life and people from all over the world-then college coursework. Each department management was fair and tolerant. Had many co-workers who also gained much knowledge about life and academics. The hardest part of job was time management to work around class schedules. Most enjoyable was watching fellow classmates matriculate their prospective college goals and accolades.

Administrative Assistant/Circulation Rep. (Current Employee), Ashland, ORJanuary 3, 2013
Pros: wonderful office culture
Cons: low pay
The work environment allows for freedom of expression and ability to exercise learned skills through assigned tasks and special projects. My typical day at work includes overseeing accounts for my department of Friends of Hannon Library and assisting with events coordinating and any assigned administrative tasks. Administrative tasks can include anything from returning phone calls and answering emails all the way to conduting specialized research for coordinated events.

SOU Enrollment has given me faith there are wonderful places to work
Office Assistant - Temp (Former Employee), Ashland, ORApril 9, 2012
Pros: diversity, promotion of human spirit, growth. very inclusive.
Cons: no degree, no permanent job.
In this age where the employers have the advantage and sometimes we feel under valued, I felt SOU made me feel not only valued but I felt excited to help out. Hard working people. I loved working in Enrollment.

The only draw back is if you don't have a degree then there is little or no room for advancement.
