Rubby Nwaluka is a 4th-year student in the Faculty of Social Science and Humanities. Like most students, Rubby works part-time while going to school. What's so unique about her job, however, is that it's right here on campus through the University Works program.
"As a University Works student with Student Accessibility Services (SAS), I am assigned projects that cater to my area of interest. This gives me the opportunity to build and improve on various skills that I need for a future career path in my field. I have had the opportunity to develop resources and workshops on various citation styles such as APA, MLA, McGill and IEEE, and I can work one-on-one with students and help them to learn each part step-by-step and provide simplified resources which they can refer to after the sessions. In my job, I also conducted surveys to gather data on things students want to know about various services provided by UOIT. The information we gathered was used to develop resource packages for new students with valuable information about UOIT. The goal of this project is to help students connect with everything necessary to enjoy their UOIT experience.
