Wow, I am an upcoming Senior graduate planning to go to Prince George's Community College for two years and transfer to University of Maryland, College Park studying Psychology and Computer Programming. So basically, I researched and found these statistics 7.3 percent of students who have worked in every previous semester drop out, compared to 5.7 percent of students who have never worked. Cumulatively, this means that a never-employed student has a 37.5 percent chance of dropping out before graduating, and an always-employed student has a 45.5 percent probability of dropping out.
Survey evidence lends further support to the notion that working may be an important cause of dropping out. When college dropouts were asked to cite their main reasons for dropping out, 20.8 percent reported part-time employment as a reason, and 11.5 percent reported full-time employment.16 The study also finds that students who work continuously take somewhat longer to graduate than non-workers: Student workers took an average of 9.2 semesters to graduate, compared to 8.9 semesters for those who have at least one non-working semester.
However, I still think I can manintain my grades and have a job on campus. What are some jobs typically held on campuses. I want all any one can give me.
