Most summer jobs are  40 hours per week. Positions are available in buildings and grounds, dining services, heavy cleaning, Marbeck Center, technology center, library and various other offices.


To be considered for campus employment, students must submit a summer application.  Students interested in working in a certain area on campus should contact that supervisor to let them know of their interest.
