Employment Options

Student Employment Options

Studies show that students who engage in part-time work have a higher grade point average and are more likely to complete college. Students who work part time learn to manage their time effectively and interact in a professional setting, all while creating meaningful mentor relationships and acquiring important job skills.

The Student Employment Center offers students a variety of job listings for on- and off-campus employment in both Work Study and non-Work Study positions, as well as community service opportunities.
