Former Professorial Assistant at Michigan State University
over 2 years ago
I have enjoyed experiencing a professional work environment and gaining the trust and respect of my colleagues. I also get very excited to learn new techniques and try new things such as extracting metabolites from cancer cells or grinding mouse tumors for metabolomic analysis. I would say the downside of being a PA is assuming more responsibility as an undergraduate. Especially as a freshman, I occasionaly found myself overwhelmed by my responsibilities or dreading going to the lab at night when I had a long day of class. But overall, I have found the experience very positive.
