Residence Life is a great experience.
Resident Assistant (Former Employee), Danbury, CT.November 7, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Cons: lack of flexibilitly.
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 – more... 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. – less

Rewarding Position
Event/Stage Manager, Music Librarian, Sound Tech (Former Employee), Danbury, CTMay 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 – more... 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. – less

Archaeology Field Technician (Former Employee), Danbury, CTSeptember 4, 2013
I only worked as a volunteer for the archaeology field school. This was my second field school. I worked early in the morning to late in the afternoon. The hardest part of working was working on a hill with lots of rocks. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I am gaining experience in archaeology.
