    Student worker, something to do, short hours

    I worked at Lebanon Valley College part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked in the Office of Spiritual Life for only about 3 hours per week. They have a different student working each day, hence the low hours. It was good for something to do. I got to interact with different constituencies and groups of the campus. I was also able to interact with members of the community and develop basic office skills.

    Cons

    At times this job could be slow and boring. It can often feel like you're just doing busywork. It's also not much of a money maker. There are not a lot of hours, but that's because the chaplain wants to hire a lot of students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think giving the students more autonomy and freedom to decide what to do in service to the office would be beneficial to the student and the school. Consider giving the workers more hours, or perhaps lessening the number of workers so they can each have more hours.

    I have been working at Lebanon Valley College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart, passionate faculty, community atmosphere, attention to teaching, collegiality, supportive administration, relatively little drama

    Cons

    I don't see a lot of cons; it's exactly the kind of institution I always wanted to teach at, but it's a small town-- not everyone likes that-- and it's not a research 1 school. We value teaching. Prospective employees should understand the kind of institution LVC is: small, relatively rural, teaching centered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, but also keep an eye on faculty workload-- we do too much.

    Pros

    There are many great people in administration to work under and to guide the student workers at this college. They do a wonderful job.

    Cons

    Remember...student workers use this experience to gain knowledge to use in future employment. But you already do this in many of the departments at LVC!

    Remember that student workers seek to use this experience to gain a wealth of knowledge in future employment. But you already do this in many of the departments at LVC!
