Catering
Working for University Catering allows for me to be involved with fun events around campus and be involved in the community. Not only is the flexible schedule nice, but the people and friendships I have made within catering have allowed me to flourish. Working in catering has also saved me money by providing food after events."

The job has let me have some very rewarding experiences and helped me to meet a lot of great people. It also allows me to create a schedule around my classes, so my work never gets in my way of academics."
