4 Benefits Of Working On Campus

4 Benefits Of Working On Campus

Last year, I had the opportunity to work as a tutor at my school's academic center, and I can honestly say it was one of the best jobs i've ever had. Working on campus had so many great benefits, and here is why I think everybody should work on campus for at least one semester.

1. The convenience.

Last year, I commuted to school, and didn't know what I was going to do with three to six hour gaps in between my classes. Working on campus allowed me to do something productive during my time off, and get paid for it. For those who live on campus, your job is only a couple feet from your room. Consider this a blessing when you need those few extra minutes of sleep Monday morning.

2. Working alongside other students.

This was one of my favorite parts about working on campus. Every coworker goes to the same school as you and around the same age as you. I met two of my really good friends through working on campus (shoutout to Joe and Erica) and I also became familiar with just other students and faculty is general. Working on campus is a great way to meet new people and familiarize yourself with your school.

3. Helping your peers.

This may not apply to every on campus job, but since I worked as a tutor, I directly interacted with new students everyday. I loved being able to help students who were struggling with a certain class, come up to me later in the semester and tell me how much better they're doing now because of my help.

4. Flexible hours.

As college students, we have very little time to get a lot of work done. One of my biggest fears coming into college, was wondering how I would be able to juggle a job and all my school work. If you're working on campus, people understand how important your schoolwork is, therefore are usually more flexible about hours and working around your schedule.

As the fall semester is quickly approaching, I hope you look into getting a job on campus. Most schools have job fairs or online listings the first week of school with all the jobs available to students for that upcoming seamster. Good luck!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
