    I worked at Lake Forest College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved working on Lake Forest College's Residence Life team as a Resident Assistant. I had some really great Residence Directors and fellow RAs and it was overall lots of fun.

    Cons

    The pay when I worked there was not spectacular, but it's not a job you do for the money, so it didn't really matter.

    Advice to Management

    LFC Res Life is the best life. Thanks for being awesome and supportive and a great family while I was there at the college.
