What is the best part of being a Graduate Assistant in the CLDC, you ask? Well, for me, there are many things that make this job great!
- Each day is different.
Whether I’m working with the Student Ambassador Team, editing content for our leadership workshops, or facilitating a student drop-in, there is never one day that is exactly like another.
- I gain a wide range of experience.
The experiences I have in the CLDC are a great supplement to my classes in the College Student Personnel program in the Patton School of Education. I get to balance the practical experience of my job at the CLDC with my graduate school classes, giving me invaluable and diverse knowledge.
- I get to help students.
I have the opportunity to help college students reach their full career and leadership potential through drop-ins for resumes and cover letters, career coaching, and various workshops.
- I’ve made great memories.
I have had numerous unforgettable experiences, like doing a trust fall off a three-foot tall platform with my students, going to the NASPA national conference, and attending the graduate assistant retreat at the Lake Hope Lodge. There’s never a dull moment.
- There is an amazing work environment and culture.
Most importantly…I get to work alongside a friendly, intelligent, caring, and fun-loving staff. When I enter the office each day, I know there will be laughs had and support given, ultimately creating life-long friendships!
