Break the “K” Bubble, Make More Money
A recent study done at Kalamazoo College shows that students that work off campus make significantly more than those that work on campus. The “K” bubble really is limiting students’ opportunities and most students are falling into this trap. According to the study 93% of employed students work on campus, and all on campus jobs make only minimum wage. Those students who do work off campus make more money and work more hours. The same study also indicates that there is no correlation between employment and academic performance; the study claims, even after accounting for random error, that 90% of students do not find their employment to have any adverse effects on their studies. This means that for students who want to make money they should look off campus for jobs and proves that it really is worth it to get out of the “K” bubble.
