Every spring, that same time rolls around – time to start looking for summer work! While the majority of students go home, there are plenty that stay on campus and work here for 14 of the 16 weeks of summer. There are lots of options for on-campus jobs, most including free room and board! Last summer I worked in the Admissions Office, while my roommate worked for Campus Events. The jobs range from working in Financial Aid, to working in Lottie (the dining hall on campus), to cleaning dorm rooms or academic buildings, to being a lifeguard at the pool, and many, many more! Anyone who is a student at Messiah is eligible to work over the summer, and it’s as simple as finding the job you’d like to do, and applying! It’s a great way to stay local if you’re an international student or live farther away, or to have a guaranteed 40 hour a week job if that’s what youre looking for. It is definitely one of the most fun experiences I’ve had here as a student!
