Jingbo Sun, a sophomore from China, prepares the food at Chartwells before the rush of students come in for the lunch hour. "I like working at Chartwells because I make more friends and meet other employees that are the same culture as me," Sun said.

Being in college doesn’t have to take all your money. Just take a look through 450 jobs available on the UNK campus every year, including both work study and non-work study jobs. 

According to Anne McConkey, coordinator of student employment and scholarships in the office of financial aid, “Many students need the additional income while they're attending school to help pay for books, living expenses, their university bill or a number of other expenses.”  But having a job on campus gives students more than enough money to pay for college expenses. 

“University-related jobs also offer great work experience for students, especially if it's in the field the student is pursuing. They get hands-on experience that looks good on their resume and also provides a learning opportunity that they might not otherwise have,” McConkey said.

 On-campus jobs are also more convenient for many students. Students can walk to and from their jobs without having to worry about finding a place to park their car. 

Any student wanting to apply can visit the Student Employment Services Web site at http://www.unk.edu/offices/ses.
