The Student Life Experience: Colleen

Written by: Colleen McGuire

I can’t believe I am already sitting here writing about my experience with Student Life. It feels like yesterday that we were working the vendor fair at O-Week and moving first year students into res! That was my first week working for Student Life, and by far the most memorable. It was overwhelming, as any new job can be, and totally awesome! I knew right away that this job was going to be the highlight of my Brock University career, and it has yet to prove me wrong.

I originally applied for the Event & Volunteer planner position here at Student Life because I thought it would look good on a resume. I never thought it would give me so much more than that, such as numerous professional connections within Brock and the Niagara community that I will be able to connect with for years to come. The management team allows us to foster our creativity and gain hands on experience by giving us total control over our projects, which in turn has given me the confidence to plan an amazing event!

Lastly, I can’t stress enough how great the people in the Student Life department are. I have never worked on a team that collaborates so well and truly has fun while working together! If you are considering applying for a job with Student Life, I suggest that you take the risk and just go for it! It is an experience that you will not regret.
