When you atteneded college how did you supplement your tuition?
I had to work full-time as an administrative assistant during my college days and attended classes at night. What are other options used to supplement college tuition and expenses?
I did almost every job available at the college - cleaning the college minibuses, working as an assistant in the library and being the weekend animal care technician and helping lambing on the college farm.
Right now, I take out loans and, since I commute, I work at wawa to keep pocket money so i don't have to rely on my loan entirely. I know with a Bachelor's degree it can be hard to get grants and scholarships; however, once you go for your masters, you can apply for assistantships, apprenticeships and you have an easier time and many more options to waver your master's tuition.
Very interesting! I had better luck finding undergrad scholarships than I am now with looking for grad scholarships, though this could also be b/c I don't want to go full time. GUess I need to look harder.
Keith, I have seen your hub posts and know that you are a really dedicated, extremely busy and hard working person. It will all pay off for you some day. Hang in there.
I went to school full time and worked part time as a lifeguard and swim instructor. I also was an RA for 3 semesters, which meant free housing and parking plus additional money off my bill. Also applied for numerous scholarships, took out loans, and worked A LOT in the summer (40-60 hours a week) to allow myself a little wiggle worm during term time.
I was fortunate enough to attend college on a scholarship, but as we all know, undergrads have other expenses, like burgers and beer, that need to be addressed. This was back in the mid-Sixties, so we didn't have that many opportunities for jobs, but I fell into a job with a local bank--as an English major no less! That plus a little help from generous grandparents saw me through all the "crises" that popped up.
Good morning teaches.
Many, many many moons ago when I was attending school I worked a full time job to suppliment my expenses. First at a sweat shop then as a security officer at a consulate. S chool was completed with no debt. As well there was volunteer work. Being you it was possable to get by on three hours sleep a day for five days then pretty much sleep the whole days off. It was one of the best times of my life.
God bless you.
In the 1960s when I was an undergrduate, I worked summer jobs with the Racine County Highway Department and the U.S. Post Office on campus. As a graduate student in the 1970s, I received G.I. Educational benefits and also got some money by drilling with the U.S. Navy Reserve.
Hi teaches! I worked on the yearbook for a nominal monthly stipend ( it basically bought beverages for a couple of weeks) and then I was a lifeguard at the college pool and managed pools in the summer months. I also gave swim lessons. I had a great tan by the end of the summer and was fit through the rest of the year because we would all swim in the pool during breaks. That was a great time!
You had a job I wanted badly when I was in college. You must have a lot of fun! Thanks, dear friend, for coming by here today.
These are such great college jobs! I've done all of them except yearbook I still LOVE teaching swimming and wish I could squeeze it in more with my full time job!
