One of the biggest concerns about coming to college that some of you may have is, how you’re going to pay for it. Having a job and trying to juggle homework and a social life at the same time can be very stressful and difficult at times. Getting a job on campus can make this much easier for anyone to handle. There are a plethora of jobs available all over campus in residence halls, dining courts, food marts, academic offices, libraries, etc.
During my sophomore year, I got a job at CPK (Central Production Kitchen) where all the food for on-the-go is made and sealed. The thing I like best about having a job on campus is being able to go to work during long breaks between classes. Working a couple hours here and there adds up to about 10-12 hours a week without having to work nights and weekends, which gives me time to do homework and still have a social life as well. All in all, getting a job to earn some extra money while going to school is possible, just find something that fits in with your class schedule and isn't too demanding.
Until next time,
