Working for Admissions has caused me to grow as an individual and become more responsible.
Student Ambassador (Current Employee), Deland, FLApril 20, 2015
I help with escort perspective students from classes and have lunch with them to answer any questions and help show them what it is like to be a Stetson student. I have hosted overnights, where perspective students stay in my room and they experience college life. I work at events like Open Houses and Hatter Saturday where perspective students get an overview of the school, visit classes, and meet faculty and staff, as well as other Ambassadors. I have learned how to better manage my time and my passion for Stetson University has really grown. Being a member of Student Ambassadors has also increased my professional development by teaching me how to deal with employees of the university and apply for jobs and positions. The management and my co-workers are amazing because everyone is extremely supportive and all working for the same common goal: helping prospective students find their home at Stetson. The hardest part of the job is invasion of your privacy during overnights, and the best part is when a prospective student tells you that they have chosen to come to Stetson because of the impact you had on them.

Safe and very involving work force for Music students.
Recording Engineer (Former Employee), Deland, FlMay 22, 2013
Pros: its in a nice room and most of the time it isn't stressful.
Cons: by the end, it can sometimes get in the way of your studying/practicing time.
The sound recording studio at Stetson University is not only an involving and enjoyable position for a music student, but it is also an amazing experience as well as a good teacher for the outside world. The knowledge I have gained from working here has made me confident about being able to handle my own recording equipment in modern times, making me feel more secure about taking control of my career as a music performer. However, it is a work study job, so compensation is not as high, but it is definitely easy to manage. You can always find a time slot that will accommodate you.

The hardest part about the job however, would have to be by the end, where there are 8 back to back concerts a day, meaning your shifts are not only a lot longer, but a lot harder as well. You have to learn how to produce the same quality of work in a smaller time period. This helps the employee become better at managing time however.

The best part about the job is all the concerts you get to go too. While some are dull, most are amazing and a wonderful experience to a learning musician. It is what every classical musician wants, to be around high quality music and getting to see elite musicians perform at their best. It is the best music teacher.

School of Business Program Assistant (Former Employee), Celebration, FLAugust 22, 2012
Pros: free lunches
Cons: the health isurance is expensive
A typical day at work is check my email and my voice messages. What I've learned is how important it is when you are available for students when they need your assistance. The management are always available when you need them. The co-workers are friendly and family oriented.

flexible hours and supportive management
Graduate Assistant - Graduate Studies (Former Employee), DeLand, FLJune 28, 2012
Typical day: Come in when you can (usually before classes were in session and stay as long as it takes to get your work done.

What I learned: I gained a great deal of experience with database management. Sorting through thousands of documents, quickly extracting useful business intelligence, classifying the data and presenting it in an easy to use format.

Management: My managers handled me very well. They knew that as a high functioning individual I could be given a task with little direction and could accomplish their desired objectives.

Hardest part of the job: Staring at a computer screen all day.

Isn't a job... It's a career choice.
Army Rotc Cadet (Current Employee), DeLand, FLMay 2, 2012
This isn't technically a job you could just apply and get hired into. It is an application and screening process. You have to physically fit, get good grades, and be offered a slot. If there aren't any then they cannot pay you, but you can attend.

Adjustable schedule based upon classes with deadlines that were attainable but sufficiently stretched
Technology Intern (Former Employee), Deland, flFebruary 28, 2012
I installed Windows 7 through out the labs on campus. If it had been possible I wouldve wanted to continue to learn my supervisors job which was a lab administrator, since I had learned some of his responsibilities.

The company as a whole is very fair.
