An on-campus job not only provides a source of income—it prepares you for the real world.
The Office of Student Academic Support Services encourages students to pursue a variety of employment possibilities, from federal work-study positions, to opportunities on and around campus. These jobs offer more than extra cash—they provide you with real-world experience, making you career-ready and enhancing your college experience.
Don’t just take our word for it. A 2019 NASPA report revealed that on-campus employment programs provide several benefits to both students and universities. According to 244 student affairs professionals surveyed, these programs are designed to:
- Equip students with career-readiness competencies
- Improve student financial security
- Increase retention rates
- Build student connections to campus
- Enhance student learning
- Provide opportunities for career exploration
- Increase the number of student opportunities
- Improve academic performance
At La Roche University there are multiple ways for you to jumpstart your career and reap the benefits of working while you’re in college. These opportunities include:
Federal Work Study – This need-based program is for full-time undergraduate students.
On-Campus Employment – Work in the Writers’ Center, Wright Library, dining hall or campus bookstore, or serve as a tutor, test proctor or peer counselor.
Across the Street – McCandless Crossing, a newly developed town center within walking distance of campus, offers a range of internship and employment opportunities.
No matter which avenue you choose, you’ll be able to earn money for personal or educational purposes while actively preparing for life after graduation.
