I started this job first day of my freshman year. I was so confused. People kept asking me questions about the library, none of which I could answer, considering it was my first time there as well. After getting very few hours per week (only about 8-10) and still getting paid minimum wage in my Sophomore year I had decided it was time to start looking either for a new job, or a second job. About a week after applying for several, my boss offered me a promotion to "lead student." This came with a $2.25/ hour pay raise and I was one of the first to have my schedule chosen, meaning I was able to get more hours.
Throughout the day people have been stopping by to say goodbye, and I have to say that it seems surreal that in a mere 2 hours I will officially be done working here forever. I will miss all the wonderful employees, the "interesting" patrons, and most importantly my self-reflection/dancing time in the stacks. It's been a great three years Wilson Library, and while I'm excited to move on to my new job, I'm sad to leave this "second home."
