Very good question! Balancing school and work can be hard. Something to keep in mind is your priorities. Your number one priority is being a full-time student. You'll need the time to study, do homework and write papers. Work study is a great option to look into and has great benefits. You can also consider other campus jobs or off campus jobs if you have transportation. I worked my entire college career and went to school full-time. I would suggest looking into part-time jobs that are flexible to fit around your classes and school work. Make the employer aware that you are student and can only work a set number of hours a week and at certain times of the day. During different times in college, I worked at the college snack bar, a local supermarket and as an office assistant. Find what works best for you and your schedule without compromising your education.
