"My student employment experience has been one of the highlights of my overall college experience at UM. I am very thankful for both of the jobs I have held at UM as they have not only led to my personal and professional growth, but have also given me mentors and strong support systems on campus. I would absolutely recommend student employment to anyone who is considering it. It will enhance your college experience by teaching you invaluable lessons beyond the classroom that will be useful throughout the rest of your career."
