Campus employers benefit, too in that they only pay 20% of the student wages, while Uncle Sam picks up the rest. With some luck, students can find a job of their choice in their own college, making it more interesting and workable around their class schedule. Since I study in the Cullen College of Engineering, I was fortunate to get a job requiring the technical expertise I had — at the Engineering Media Center. It was conveniently on the same floor as some of my classes, and my duties included drafting, processing and printing photographs and earning $6.00 an hour. The ususal range for student salaries is, however, from $3.50-$7.50. Work study's advantages include savings in transportation costs, higher pay than equal work off-campus for most jobs, and flexibility for exams and student events. Clearly, the one disadvantage is the bureaucracy involved. First, students have to fill out the ACT forms which evaluate financial needs, taking anywhere from 4-6 weeks to process. If there are any problems, Amelia Romero, Senior Secretary, and Mary Valle and Claudia Olivas, Record Specialist assistants, are ready to help. These three process approxia- mately 1100 students a year. Not all students continue with the program; this Spring only 738 students remained with their work study positions. "Students don't realize the amount of paperwork involved for each person. Some come into the office and expect a problem with their work study to be resolved immediately, and sometimes it just can't be corrected in one day," said Valle. Many students are suprised to find how much work study they can qualify for, and the variety of jobs available. Work study students are from all backgrounds, and work in areas such as the library, optometry, media relations, child care, and science laboratories. The best thing is that after graduation, or when the award is used up, the department may opt to hire the student on their own budget. ► Sunil N.
