University of Illinois Campus Recreation is one of the largest on-campus employers with almost 700 student employees, ranging from lifeguards to officials to facility staff to ice skating instructors. Student employees play an invaluable role by providing customer service, safety, and fun to our guests. Campus Recreation will provide you with valuable work skills, life-long learning opportunities, and lasting friendships.
I like working at Campus Recreation because it is exciting and eventful, as well as provides a constant atmosphere for advancement and improvement. As a program assistant for Adventure Recreation, there are always new and different things for me to accomplish to keep the climbing wall running smoothly. I am also challenged to try my best and come up with new ideas to make the department better. I get the opportunity to work surrounded by many of my friends in a place where I am continually spending my time.
