Waking up in the morning was hard for students when they worked and went to school. Many would oversleep for class or work because they were up all night studying. Students experienced this almost daily on the UH campus. Many students paid their own bills. Either they were paying off a car, loans or living on their own away from their parents. Some students were parents. Some students had more than one job so that they could live comfortably. This busy schedule was a way of life on campus. "Working and going to school is hard to do. I have bills to pay, classes to take, jobs to go to. My life is so busy, I hardly have time to sleep," said senior psychology majorjessica Molina. There were many places throughout the city who hired students, since they were willing to work the more odd schedules so that they could go to school. Stephanie Leigh's, a small chain bakery and coffee shop downtown, offered either early morning schedules from 6-12 for students who had classes in the afternoon and 12-4:30 for those with morning classes. They even paid much higher than minumum wage. Kroger offered free benefits for their employees and a more diverse working environment as far as job duties went. Of course, there were the coffee shops. Most shops offered competitive salaries plus tips and the wonderful aroma of coffee floating endlessly through the air. There were also students who took on their own businesses or who already had a degree in something else and were in school obtaining a second degree. For instance, senior media production major Michael Brimms had a degree in English that he recieved while he was still in Germany. He used that degree to help pay his bills by teaching German on campus. "I really love teaching, and the job helps pay for most of my school and living expenses," said Brims. These hard workers knew that working and going to school was a challenge, and many graduates had found that having good grades and a busy lifestyle looked good on their resumes. -Michelle Lehmann Working Stmdc
