    I worked at South University


    Great environment with good people. It was my first ever job and I was honored to be part of Student Affairs as a work study. Every department had its different mood and feel which added life to the job. Very friendly workers.


    I can't really think of anything horrible. You have your days when you want to sleep or go home, but that's with any job.
