At the end of the Spring 2015 semester, five students received their LAW attribute through noncredit activities while serving as community volunteers or in campus work-study positions. Here are some of their comments.
Monica Iafrancesco: Marketing Coordinator, Chartwells Dining Services
This is an opportunity that allowed me to put my class knowledge into real life experience. It is a position that allows you to be creative and learn from your mistakes. I have recognized my strengths and weaknesses, what skills I can improve, and which ones I have to offer future employers.
Rebecca Jacaruso: Supervising Client Service Representative, Eastern’s Financial Aid Office
My experience in the FAO helped me to understand the connection between theory and practice. I was able to gain a strong work ethic and practice in a professional work environment. Most importantly, it has given me the abilities and values needed for a future career path.
Les Damour: Senior Student Leader, Eastern’s Center for Community Engagement
Being a Computer Science major, I did not initially believe anything I learned in my courses would apply to being a Senior Student Leader with the CCE. However, within a couple months, I realized ways I could incorporate computer-savvy concepts and abilities to my experience. Skills I learned at the CCE are universal and can be adapted regardless of what path I choose for my career.
