    I worked at Susquehanna University part-time

    Pros

    Susquehanna is a great place for students to find their way and gain career experience. My first internship with the Common Reading program helped me secure summer employment the following summer. Some of my friends had work-study jobs that they maintained year after year and gained valuable experience.

    Cons

    Jobs fill up quickly, so you need to apply immediately if you would like to have a work-study job.

    Advice to Management

    Always give students' ideas consideration.

    I have been working at Susquehanna University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing campus with a sincerely unique student environment.
    Feels as though you are given the responsibilities of a full-time manager, and you will learn a lot if you apply yourself in and outside the classroom.

    Cons

    There is a lot of responsibility in moral discussions and you must work to make sure your voice is heard and that you take on leadership roles. There are lot to go around and it is easy to find but it will take work and you will have to manage a tough schedule if you get involved.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to make sure students who do get too involved understand how to take a break and how to ease into that fast-paced world.
