The opportunities provided here are unlike any other. It is rare to find a university that lets its graduate students teach a class completely on their own. It is a wonderful experience, and the professors and other faculty that are there for guidance are helpful and are great supports.
Flexibility and stability hours are great. The work environment is great and welcoming. My Managers always help me questions I have about things in the office and clear my confusion. As well as interact with me respectively.
An inclusive, dedicated, and productive environment
Building Manager (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – January 22, 2016
The Campus and Student Center was an excellent first time work environment, each staff member was given plenty of opportunities and responsibilities to advance themselves. Management was always willing to listen to ideas and grievances and would often stop by during the day to check in on employees.

Students Computer lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Danbury CT – November 26, 2014
Organized and prepared lab for daily activities. Provided information, resources and technical support to staff and students. Worked directly with teammates and supervisors for problem resolutions Kept track of inventory and set up appointments for students
I was an RA for two years and really enjoyed the staff I worked with. It was easy to become tight knit and become a family. Creating programs and a positive environment for the residents in the dorms was actually pretty enjoyable. As much fun as it was being an RA it was just as fun bonding with your residents as well. The only issue is that the Resident Directors are not very flexible around class schedule and other responsibilities that may be asked of you. It will seem like they support you but at the same time having to leave for another responsibility would then be counted against you. It was overall a very positive experience.
Event/Stage Manager, Music Librarian, Sound Tech (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – May 29, 2014
As a student employee, I had the opportunity to be in charge of events that took place in the university's concert hall, which included seminars, lectures, concerts, and groups that came from outside the university. This gave me the chance to work on my adaptability when working with clients - no two events were ever the same. Some had more setup than others, and some had more technical requirements.
I learned very quickly that my job had an importance - I bridged the gap between the goals of the client and carrying out those goals in the concert hall. Therefore, I worked quickly, made sure clientele were content, and utilized multitasking on a daily basis.
I worked with a small group of fellow students (no more than 25), which was enjoyable because you got to know everyone you worked with. Some events only needed one stage crew member and myself, while others needed every person to rotate throughout a 3-day period. Organization, adaptability, and an outgoing, friendly persona were key to surviving these longer events.
While the work was demanding, it was intensely rewarding to help clientele meet or surpass their goals and aspirations for an event. It was that kind of outcome that kept me coming back.
