If you're a math major, I definitely recommend reaching out to your advisor to talk about summer research opportunities in the math department. I found it to be an enjoyable and worthwhile experience.

Web Developer

June - August 2018 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I loved the freedom of hours (pick and choose) as well as the people and the environment.

What I wish was different

The work itself was a bit boring.

Advice

Network, network, network! I had no idea I would qualify for this position until I talked to people already working in the office. Also, apply to a few positions outside your comfort zone. This position really stands out on my resume.

Research assistant for the Biology Department

May - August 2018 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I really liked having a longer amount of time to work on my senior research project so that I could really get into detail and read a lot of background information about the subject I was going to do research on.

What I wish was different

Advice

I would definitely say to talk to professors that you think you might want to do your research with and ask them about this opportunity because ultimately the professors apply for the stipend so I wouldn't have known about it if my professor hadn't told me.

Historian Research Assistant

May - August 2018 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

Creating my own hours, being able to collaborate with my professor and pursue a subject that interested me.

What I wish was different

I should have spread the hours more evenly and created a personal schedule for myself.

Advice

Don't let things get away from you! Start your work early so you are able to get through it all. Also, do not feel bad for taking a break. Research allows you to do this.
