ASA Testimonies

“Being part of the ASA team has been an exceptional experience. It has improved my public speaking skills and has given me a chance to learn how to present information in a clear, concise way. Being an ASA means being part of a supportive team, and an equally professional environment. I have improved my interpersonal skills by being part of this environment, and also having the opportunity to work with professional staff and faculty on a regular basis."

"Being an ASA was the best decision ever! I’ve built various communication skills that I wouldn’t have if I didn’t take this opportunity. I feel more confident than ever in the knowledge and skills I possess. Also, working with new students is the best! I know starting college can be scary, but hearing that a student feels confident in their academic journey after speaking with me is rewarding. The ASA team and I worked hard to create a positive work environment and also a place where students felt comfortable. The community that we built together is something I will cherish for years to come."

“Working as an ASA gave me great professional experience that I know will be useful to me later in my life and my career. I especially valued how the role strengthened my ability to work on a team. I also found that the knowledge I gained about university programs and academic pathways has been helpful in my own journey as a student at Western. I felt supported by my coworkers and the rest of the AASAC staff throughout it all and would highly recommend this position to other qualified students!”
