I really enjoyed the consistent camaraderie that I felt with all my peers within the Crew. It was very easy to make friends and be sociable at work thanks to the common attitude and desire to pursue it at work. I know it is something I will cherish forever as I continue on in my professional and adult life!
If done with the right mindset and goals, working with the Crimson Crew can create a personal growth beyond what any college courses are going to teach you. My time working in the building and with my peers was something special and probably one of the biggest highlights I will look back on from my college experience. To take my experience as "just a place to work" would downplay the magnitude of what the Crimson Crew has to offer. I am truly grateful for my time working with all of you.
[Because of] the culture of the people around me. I met people who have become my closest friends and who have given me the most impactful feedback. I will always remember the amazing leaders that made working at the SLC the most memorable.
