I hope you are having an amazing day. I do recommend work study. You will gain work experience and you will make money for working. If you are selected for work study, it would be great. See if they can place you with someone in your department so that you are able to learn from the professor.
If not selected, see if the chair of the department has any research opportunities for undergraduate students; however, make sure that you will have the time to study, do homework, and enjoy your college time. So, if you have the opportunity to work, work. Gain work experience and learn as much as possible.
