    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Work…Another Day in the Life?

Summer is always the time that college students make all of their money.  We work as much as we can during the summer, hoarding away our money like chipmunks storing acorns.  However, most of us students also need to make money during the school year to have cash to live off of.  The question is, how can you attend school as a full time student but also find time to make some money?  Here are some pointers:

  • Before you decide to dedicate yourself to a job, first look at scholarships and grants that you can simply apply for.  Not only does Scholastica offer many, but websites like Fastweb and Scholarships.com can also offer some interesting financial aid options for college students.
  • If you do decide that a job is the way to go, look into working a job for the school.  There are many different work study programs through Scholastica that will pay you to work on campus and not rob you of all of your time…and energy!
  • When and if you are forced to look into an off campus job, use your resources!  There are so many at your finger tips!  Sites like Craigslist and even Duluth News Tribune can provide you with job opportunities in the area.  Also, the employment center on campus and the display boards near the Union always are full of flyers advertising jobs.
  • Finally, one small word of advice (which I have learned from many friends who have tried to do this!), DON’T try to win your money by the lottery or gambling.  DO go out and have fun at the casino from time to time, because it is a blast.  However, put limitations upon how much you plan to bet and how often you go…otherwise it can hurt you a lot more than it can help you!!

Again, good luck and happy $$$ hunting!!
