GRC Experiences

Read what some of our GRCs had to say about their graduate experiences in student life at Loyola:

GRC training outing with fall 2017 staff

Eta M.

"The GRC position is one that is both challenging and rewarding. Through this position, I believe that I have strengthened my clinical and crisis management skills, which is invaluable in the field of psychology. I have the opportunity to develop some amazing resident assistants through direct supervision and have established connections not only with fellow GRCs and professional staff, but with a variety of key leaders throughout the campus. While on duty, I serve as a first responder who is charged with the task of assessing situations and providing support to residents and sometimes their families when they need it most. It is hard work, but I would not have it any other way!"

Liza B.

"After two years as a GRC, the Housing Operations GRC position provided a great opportunity to maintain a connection with student life and students.. While it's been different to not work as closely with the R.A.s, I have loved working with my four desk coordinators. This is a unique job position on campus - it requires a lot of organization and professionalism to manage a staff of 193 students. Participating in student life's training provided me with a sound knowledge base on topics like giving feedback and managing a staff - skills that this position definitely requires!"

Corey M.

"My experiences as GRC have helped me develop better communication and helping skills as I work with students through a variety of challenges. One of the greatest things about working as a GRC has been the great support system I have gained through my fellow GRCs and administrative staff. Overall, working as a GOC has greatly aided in my adjustment to graduate school as well as provided me with experiences that will enhance my knowledge and skill development in the Psy.D. program at Loyola University Maryland!"
