*Post written by Josh Knecht, student assistant of the University Archives and Special Collections.
My time in the archives has been valuable to me; it provides an atmosphere that allows me to unwind after my classes. It is quiet, relaxing, and affords me the chance to make money as a student without having my grades suffer as a result. Having had jobs in the past that do affect my grades, I value this quality. Everyone that I work with are very helpful, and I never feel like I don’t understand what I am supposed to be doing.
