Athletic Department Assistant (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – May 13, 2017
It was fun to be able to watch a few of my school's sporting events and being able to work and help out the athletic department. My job was to be a spotter, making sure I get everyone who played in the game, and I brought the box scores to both teams after the games were finished.
Adjunct Professor of Photography (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – April 10, 2017
Keeps you on top of your game. If I dare say so it was fun working there . Because one can do a lot of good there. Sure for some classes you get students that just want a good grade BUT then you get other students that really want to learn. Those are the fun ones for you can really help them.
The B&W chemicals get dust in them so I would filter them out for the students.
Public Relations Intern (Former Employee) – Danbury – March 29, 2017
My typical day involved writing press releases for the university. My assignments range from informative pieces to human interest pieces. My favorite part of the job is getting to know new people and learn about them and what they are most passionate about, which is also the most difficult part. Sometimes I have a deadline and don't have a lot of time to build a strong relationship with the people I am interviewing, so it is challenging to get them to open up sometimes. I have learned a lot about AP style and mostly about how to form relationships quickly and how to establish and maintain trust.
Teachers Aid (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – March 1, 2017
as a freshman if you are unsure of what you would like to major in there are not very many people that will lead you in the right direction. Times may have changed but there was no guidance what so ever.
Resident Hall Director (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – February 26, 2017
I enjoyed meeting new faces and helping to guide young minds towards their greatest potential.Campus residential living situations are student's first experiences away from home and with roommates which can be challenging. It's encouraged for each student to learn healthy communication techniques and become involved in activities to enhance their growth and assist in transition from not living at home. As a Residence Hall Director there is a very thin line between work and personal life and finding that balance of separation without always feeling like you are working was challenging. I was able to notice weaknesses within myself so I could strengthen them and still be able to provide insight to my students.
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.

It is a great workplace, I was honored to work with very well-known and smart professors. the school has amazing professors working at the language department. Each one of my colleagues has numerous publication and awards.
My experience at westconn as a TA was amazing. I enjoyed working there. the only reason i left was because I transferred to University of Connecticut. otherwise I love teaching and student were very satisfied with my teaching.
Excellent experience working with undergraduate nursing students. Taught both clinical courses and labs. Worked well with other professors and management. Most enjoyable part of this position was working with undergraduate nursing students - excited to start their careers in nursing. Students are eager to learn and concurrent courses compliment each other well.
