A typical day at work would include Answers incoming calls/records messages Filing confidential student paperwork,Xeroxing, Faxing and Shredding materials as needed.Assist with weekend classroom set-up/take down and any other duties as assigned. I learned how important communicating your educational needs were. The management and co-workers were always helpful. The hardest part of the job was remembering the students names and the changes to Veterans forms. The most enjoyable part of the job was preparing and participating in the graduation ceremonies.
Meeting new people, great mentors and free lunches

The graduate school at Southern Illinois University fulfilled every desire I had, despite the state and university having financial issues. Most professors are very accommodating and willing to help students outside of class hours.
