Working a part-time job often proves to be a very important and beneficial piece of student life, both financially and for learning valuable time- management skills. In fact, studies have shown that students who have a job while taking classes receive higher grades because they learn how to effectively budget their time. Many campus positions can be scheduled around your student’s class schedule with a reasonable time commitment; in fact, University Housing has positions available in which students work as few as seven hours each week.
Whether working in a residence hall, food service line, office setting, or a position related to an academic interest, student employment can enhance the college experience. Many campus divisions recruit and hire over the summer for jobs in the following school year, so encourage your student to begin job hunting today.
