Summer Jobs already?!

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Today in the Student Union there were 5 or 6 tables set up for students to explore jobs for the upcoming summer of 2019. I, myself questioned that it was not yet 2019 but went to look at the tables regardless. As an elementary education major, I try to get as much exposure to kids that I can put on my resumé in the future.


New Job on Campus

Monday, September 24th, 2018

This school year, I have a new on campus job! My new job is being an intramural official. I got this job by applying on, then I went in for an interview with our boss, Anna. The interview went well, and now I am an official! For the first block, which runs through October, I officiate basketball and volleyball. Intramurals has multiple sports available for students to play each block, or half of semester. Some sports include soccer, basketball, volleyball, badminton, and new this year, knockerball, where you basically play soccer in a bubble and bounce off of opponents. is where I have applied for all my on campus jobs and where you can find all available jobs.

On Campus Jobs

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

On campus jobs are a great way to make extra money while in college and CSS offers a lot of different jobs for students that work around your class schedules. I have been working as a web developer on campus for about six months now and not only is it a great college job, but it is giving me great experience doing real world projects, as well. Furthermore, I am able to get credits to go towards my major in addition to earning money. If you are interested in an on campus job, you can go to to see what jobs are currently available.

Work Study

Monday, May 28th, 2018

If you are eligible for work study, I would highly recommend looking into an on campus job. There are a lot of opportunities for students to earn some extra cash at a job that respects your busy schedule as a student. I have been doing work study for one semester now as a student web developer in the college’s IT department and it has been an awesome experience. I worked 10 hours a week last semester and will work 15 hours a week next year. As a college student, you can plan out your class schedule to fit your needs and you can typically make your work schedule the same way. For example, next year I will have three classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and then I will work on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Work study jobs allow you to still be a student first, but you get to make some extra money for school too! Here is a link with more information about on campus jobs:

S-STEM Scholarship Program

Monday, May 28th, 2018

There is a great opportunity for St. Scholastica students who are thinking about pursuing a STEM major. St. Scholastica offers a scholarship program called the S-STEM Scholarship that gives CSS students an additional $6,500 per year. It is more than just a scholarship, however. If you apply for and receive this scholarship, you will have access to a ton of different resources to help build your resume and help prepare you for life after college working in the STEM field. Some of the opportunities you will have access to include job fairs, seminars, workshops, employer visits, research, grad school visits, and career counseling. I have been a part of this program for the past year and it has been a great experience. I will be continuing with the program until I graduate! Typically, the program only accepts second year students and up, but this past year, they accepted freshmen students for the first time so I think it is definitely something to look into. The majors that qualify for the program are Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Information Systems/Computer Science and Mathematics (except for clinical fields such as pre-med). If you are interested in more information about this scholarship, here is the link on the CSS website:
