Student Job and Volunteer Fair

Students who work on campus are more likely to stay in school, graduate within four years and attend graduate school. Plus it’s a much easier commute than racing out of class to get to an off-campus job. The Division of Student Affairs employs 2,100+ students right here on campus, offers 930+ volunteer opportunities and is recruiting for future positions. Students are invited to come explore these diverse opportunities at the Division of Student Affairs Student Job and Volunteer Fair, April 2–3, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Gregory Gym.
