Hey, I’m Sarah! I’m a junior education major, and this is my second year as a student worker. I work as a residence assistant for Harmon Hall and a student chaplain for the Office of Spiritual Life and Development (SLAD). These positions have been very valuable in teaching me what it takes to be a good leader. There is so much to learn as a student worker from your colleagues and supervisors, who often become your “work family.” For me personally, SLAD has given me the opportunity to grow confidence in my capabilities and to use my skills to honor God. I know that in the future I will look back on these years and be grateful for the mentorships I received as a student worker.

As a student worker, it can be a hassle juggling work and studies, but having a job that gives me flexible hours is key to success. Working on campus gives me that flexibility. The work environment is safe and comfortable, providing a space to grow professionally. Relationships and rapport are built with faculty and staff and are a great way to make connections for the future when joining the workforce.

Working on Campus

Edgar Zelidon

“Working on campus has provided me the opportunity to make an impact at Southwestern Adventist University (SWAU), build relationships, and fully embrace SWAU culture. The jobs provided on campus give students like me the chance to build professionalism and learn new skills. One of the highlights of working on campus is a flexible work schedule to accommodate my studies. I advise any student to take full advantage of the on-campus job opportunities that Southwestern offers.”
