"I worked at the FRIB during my senior year at MSU. It's a great place full of people with a single goal - building the Linear Accelerator. Everyone is very focused and driven, but are still very flexible when it comes to student schedules. In fact, many of my supervisors were once Student Assistants here themselves, and understand the difficulties juggling a job and full-time education."

QA Supervisor

"I started at the MSU Dairy plant in the summer of 2018 and wanted to expand on what I had learned that summer on the production side, so that fall I asked to join their Quality Assurance lab and was accepted as a lab technician. I worked on various projects assigned by my boss and completed proximate analysis lab work. The next Summer I was promoted to Quality Assurance Supervisor where my responsibilities expanded and I took on more of a leadership role."

"I have been working for two semesters at MSU as a ULA. It is very rewarding to teach people that have heard of programming, but have never thought that they had the ability to do it. Overall, the workplace environment is exciting, fast paced, and gives me a better understanding of the languages I'm teaching as well."
