Money for College Project: Exam Week

I work on a college campus, so naturally my work ebbs and flows with the college schedule. This week has been particularly slow because it is the dreaded Exam Week!

Exam week is much different as an employee than as a student. As an employee I welcome exam week because it always gives us a much needed lull before Spring registration starts up again. I’ve been able to catch back up on my work after being out for a week on our cruise.

Exam week also means that Christmas is still rapidly approaching. Students will leave to go home, and faculty and staff will have the campus to ourselves until Christmas. A college campus is always a little weird without students….but I will welcome the slower traffic! With that, here is the best of the best from this past week!

I believe this may be the measure by which all degrees are measured in the future.

    Thanks for the mention.

    I was a student employee in my school’s financial aid office. Christmas break was actually a really busy time for us processing last minute FA applications for spring and getting money distributed. The first year I was there, all student loans still came as paper checks. The second year, you could opt in to EFT, but paper checks were still the standard.

      @Shanendoah — The financial aid office is a tough place to work as a student worker. You get to deal with unhappy parents and students and don’t get paid above minimum wage! I feel for you.

      With that said, I was a student worker in financial aid as well and as tough as it was, I learned a lot. It actually helped me understand how the system worked and helped me avoid student loans. Not a bad trade off really.
