Graduate Assistant Testimonials

 Nick

"I worked in a BAS computer lab for two years. It was a long and pleasant journey, full of new experiences, great opportunities, and amazing people. Being able to constantly learn new things as well as communicate with many different people including students and professors made the job worthwhile. The environment is very friendly and relaxed, and you could have a very flexible work schedule. Personally, I think that working in the computer lab was the best option of all in terms of building new IT and social skills and adding new projects and experiences to my resume. It is a great place to learn new programming languages such as HTML, php, ColdFusion, etc.; develop troubleshooting skills fixing computers and printers; gain sys admin and security knowledge by administering a network of 400+ computers and other devices. Carlos, the Director of labs, is always very helpful and patient with new graduate assistants, making it much easier for you to work there even if you do not have much of previous IT experience."

Zammer "Working with the BAS lab for Carlos was one of the best things that happened to me, the best part about my job was the opportunity to interact with the faculty when assisting them. Apart from the technical knowledge you will also get exposure of working in the technical environment and facing challenges. These experiences helped me to start and grow in my career. This job played an important role in getting an internship during my masters and a full time job when I graduated. Thank you for everything Carlos." -

Jenny “Working in the lab was a life changing experience for me. The lab remodeling project was the first project I worked on. I created many different options, and modeled the final output in AutoCAD. I was exited to create a new space for all the students to use. The final product turned out just like I imagined! I am really happy with the new space.”  - Jenny Braman 2014
   
Lee "While I was there, I was faced with challenges that I have never dealt with before. Many of these obstacles tested my soft skills and forced me to put the things I have learned as a Computer Information Systems student into real life practice. Despite the difficulty of these challenges, I always felt confident that I worked with a team of professional and personable colleagues that would always help point me in the right direction." - Lee M Lester 2014
   
Placeholder "While working with you I have learned quite a lot and I am sure I will take these experiences to my future jobs. I was able to get familiar with troubleshoot technical issues, configure and imaging computers. Although the BAS computer lab always had various and vast projects, we were able to get everything done..." - Mahsa Majedi 2014
