For many of our students, having a job on campus is part of the Bethany College experience. Whether you are tutoring other students, working in the library, doing research for a professor, planting flowers with our groundskeepers, editing the school paper or working in Admissions, we hope you find your position to be a valuable way to gain important work experience and earn money toward tuition and other expenses. Studies show that students who work while in college actually do better.
