Interested In A Job On-Campus?

College life is all about balance. Every day students must prioritize academics, social lives, extra-curriculars, and even work. For many students, working while attending college can range from a necessity to a way to make some extra money.

While it is possible to maintain a job both on and off campus, on-campus jobs typically afford greater flexibility in terms of school work and daily college life. This is not to say that holding a job off campus is overly difficult, it is just that some students may find it easier to work in an academic setting.

I personally have held jobs both on and off campus during my nearly four years of school, and both types have their pros and cons. I typically would receive more hours at my off-campus job, however it was much more difficult to take time off or find a replacement if I found my academic workload to be too much during a given day or week.
