A Review of Research Literature on College Students and Work

by Tina Tuttle, with Jeff McKinney & Melanie Rago

College enrollments have continued on an upward climb for decades, as more and
more people recognize the value of a college education, especially the tangible value
of the diploma in the marketplace. The past few decades have witnessed growing
diversity in higher education, but with that diversity we also see dramatic changes in
how students are funding their college educations. Adult degree seekers, first-generation students, students of color, and students from low-income backgrounds
have become a mainstay in the growing mix in college today. This new mix chal-lenges the persistent image of the of the “traditional,” direct-from-high school, white,
middle-class college student on a residential campus, who may work part time, is
dependent on parents, and graduates within four years. In fact this picture represents
less than 27% of college students today (Choy 2002).

Today’s college students face a complex set of dilemmas about whether to attend
college, where to attend, how to pay, how much to work, how many jobs to take,
how to pay credit card bills and car payments, how to juggle family and children,
and how to balance these competing priorities while in school.

The amount of time students spend working has been of increasing concern for the
educators that serve them and, in some instances, the students themselves. Recent
data would indicate that 80% of American undergraduates worked while attending
college in 1999-2000 (King, 2003).This represents an 8% increase over the class less
than a decade previously, among whom 72% worked (Cuccaro-Alamin & Choy,
1998). Further, there appears to be a strong body of literature that points to the posi-tive effects of not working versus working while attending…...

...Chapter I Problem and its Setting Introduction Restaurant is an eating place where meals and drinks are sold and served to customers. It is also refers to any wide variety of establishment in which people may buy and prepared meals. A restaurant may be manage by a restaurateur, who is the owner or either the manager of the restaurant. The service of the business can be full service and may stand alone or can be accompanied with other facilities such as bar and hotel. A bar is a retail business establishment that serves alcoholic drinks  beer, wine, liquor, and cocktails  for consumption on the premises. Bars provide stools or chairs that are placed at tables or counters for their patrons. Many bars have a happy hour to encourage off-peak patronage. The term "bar" is derived from the specialized counter on which drinks are served. Customers may sit or stand at the bar and be served by the bartender, or they may sit at tables and be served by cocktail servers. The "back bar" is a set of shelves of glasses and bottles behind that counter. In an economy, it contributes greatly to the progress because it provides employment and healthy competition. It also satisfies the needs of the society and other business as well.  Customer satisfaction is the main goal of a restaurant that is why they aim to discover unique menus and serve quality of foods and services that would make their customers satisfied. Customers have different lifestyles and they will eat in a restaurant that...

Working Capital Problem

...Working-Capital Management ORIENTATION I. Managing current assets A. The firm’s investment in current assets (such as fixed assets) is determined by the marginal benefits derived from investing in them compared with their acquisition cost. B. However, the current fixed-asset mix of the firm’s investment in assets is an important determinant of the firm’s liquidity. That is, the greater the firm’s investment in current assets, other things remaining the same, the greater the firm’s liquidity. This is generally true, since current assets are usually more easily converted into cash. C. The firm can invest in marketable securities to increase its liquidity. However, such a policy involves committing the firm’s funds to a relatively low-yielding (in comparison to fixed assets) investment. II. Managing the firm’s use of current liabilities A. The greater the firm’s use of current liabilities, other things being the same, the less will be the firm’s liquidity. B. There are a number of advantages associated with the use of current liabilities for financing the firm’s asset investments. 1. Flexibility. Current liabilities can be used to match the timing of a firm’s short-term financing needs exactly. 2. Interest cost. Historically, the interest cost on short-term debt has been lower than that on long-term debt. C. Following are the disadvantages commonly associated with the use of...

...These deeply American themes are present in all the eras of student employment. The Colonial Period Admission to the professions (law, medicine, ministry, teaching) had traditionally been via lengthy apprenticeships in which the training was employment, albeit at steadily increasing levels of responsibility. Universities added a classroom component, but because of transportation difficulties and geographic isolation of the period, much training was still in the form of apprenticeships or on the job training . While apprentices were supported financially by their masters during the period of apprenticeship, universities had no such arrangement. Universities even expected the student to pay them. But the quality of education, the opportunity to be exposed to a wider community of scholars, the desire to emulate Europe, the increasing population and improving transportation all worked toward the rise of universities. They attracted young men of ambition but not always of means. In the earliest cases, these students often just hired themselves out. Many well-to-do families sought private tutors, particularly for daughters. Lawyers hired clerks. The jobs provided welcome extra money, and less need to be dependent on family. But many students either arrived at the university without means, or illness or other factors interrupted the support of the family. In these cases, faculty at the university often became involved. Small jobs, such as maintenance or...

Factors Affecting the Academic Performance of Bsoa Working Student

...Theoretical framework People say “Education is a greatest treasure that can achieve”. Education is all around us. Education is everywhere. It is not just about the lesson that can get in schools and textbooks; it’s also about the lessons of life. It gives us knowledge and changes into something better. It builds the character of a person. Excellent education leads to the success of life. The learners cannot learn simply by being told what to do or by watching others, they have to practice and practice frequently. Successful students employ time management systems to create study patterns that work and use active learning methods to add meaning and interest to their study time and maintaining their motivation by connecting reasons for study to their life goals and values. Learners must develop and established good study habits in doing school work, which can raised their academic performance. It is a common knowledge that many students fail in studying; even those who work hard often study in ways considered unproductive. Several others are just contented with barely passing grades, never developing their skills and abilities to the highest level attainable. What to study, where to study and how to study are indispensable to every student in class. In fact, proper study habits are the tool for acquiring deeper understanding in different subjects. 3.

Academic Performance of a Working Student

...Factors Affecting Part Time University Students By Jagg Xaxx, eHow Contributor • • • • Print this article Related Searches: • Students at Risk • Gifted Math Students 1. o [pic]Part time students face special challenges. Students who attend university part time face challenges and benefits that are different than full-time students. According to Salme Harju Steinberg, president emeritus of Northeastern Illinois University, most people who enroll as part-time students rather than full time do so for financial reasons (see References 1). Most part-time students are working, many of them full time, at the same time that they are attending school. This can create severe time shortages, and the student requires highly developed time-management skills in order to handle school and work. 2. Balancing Work and Study o The balance can be tricky particularly for students who are working full time while they are enrolled in a university. Even when there is time to get to all required classes, additional time is needed to complete assignments and research. If either work or study are excessively stressful for the student, the quality of both may suffer. Due to these stresses, the drop-out rate among part-time students is higher than the rate of other students. For a student who already has a job and not enough time to study, the temptation to simply give up on graduating can be great. Families and...

...ETYMOLOGY The legend behind the legend of the municipality of Siniloan is closely incorporated within a popular story handed down by the forefathers during early times and it also constitutes the legend of the nearby municipality. Long time ago, there was a group of men who concocted to trap a wild pig in preparation for the incoming merrymaking. They started by following the trails leading to a mountain. After hours of long walk they were fortunate to spot a wild pig eating grass and fallen ripened fruits under the tree which they called “LUMBANG”. They tried to catch the pig with a net but was able to escape. The men were so frustrated that they named the place LUMBAN. They continued to ran after the wild pig until it enter into a thick forest. They named it place San Juan which is presently part of the town of kalayaan. Their eagerness prosper and they follow the wild pig searching left to right and they luckily spotted the wild pig hiding in shrubs. They were able to tie the snout of the wild pig but still wasn’t able to capture. They called the place longos, still part of the municipality of kalayaan. After the failure to tie the pigs snout, the pig ran towards a plain area. The group of men had an idea of trapping the wild pig with a coral. They build a coral using their chisel (paet) from the word paet, emanated the name of the municipality of PAETE. Still the wild pig remained at large, but they don’t loose hope, the plan to sharpened their arrows using...

... considered most at risk in this respect - that is, those who had been the lowest achievers during their earlier years of secondary school - there was no strong indication that working part-time was seen by them to be any more of a problem than it was for other students. However those working more than 10 hours per week were relatively more concerned about juggling the competing demands on their time, and were more likely to feel that their schoolwork suffered as a result. The Measured Effects of Part-time Work on Schooling The hypothesis that a part-time job could adversely affect school performance was tested by examining the associations between in-school employment and school completion and Year 12 results. œ In general, employment status did not have an adverse effect on the likelihood of students completing secondary school or on their academic performance in Year 12. However, Year 11 students who spent more than 10 hours per week in their v jobs were slightly less likely to finish Year 12 than were non-workers. This is consistent with the conclusions from some American studies that intense involvement in employment is associated with an increased probability of dropping out of school. However, it is not definitive evidence that longer hours of work per se cause students to leave school before completing Year 12 - other aspects of a student’s school experiences could contribute to a process of disengagement from school that is also expressed......

...Domestic Administration An introduction from the Home Bursar The menu choices in this section of the website provide information about the people who run the backup services and systems that life in College relies on. To a new student, and even one who has been here for a while, a college can seem to be impossibly complex. The hope is that this section will give you an overall impression of how these services and systems work and fit together. It will also tell you how you can make contact with the right people to deal with enquiries so that you get the most out of your time at St Catherine’s James Bennett The Home Bursar, Mr James Bennett, is responsible for the College grounds and buildings, health and safety matters, the general management of the College’s services and the staff who provide those services. Email: james.bennett@stcatz.ox.ac.uk The Home Bursar also acts as a point of contact for representatives of the student Common Rooms, the JCR and MCR, on what are called ‘domestic’ matters – the areas covered by this section of the website. The way St Catherine’s works means that good ideas and comments on how things are done can usually be very quickly acted on if they are raised directly with the appropriate member of staff. However, there are situations when a more formal approach might be required. In these cases, matters can be raised with one of the Home Bursar’s departmental Managers (Accommodation, Maintenance and Accounts), either directly or through...

Academic Success of Working Student

... are not employed. Working teaches students about responsibility and can also reinforce what they are learning in school. They also learn how to manage time wisely while they are working. However, students who have jobs have less time to keep interpersonal relationship, stay healthy, and study. In this concern, the researchers wants to find out how work affects students in terms of their academics. Also, the researchers become interested to conduct a study on how working students who are enrolled in the university are able to carry out their work in school and at home. Furthermore, this study will give opportunity for the researchers as future teachers to gain insights on how to interact with other people, in the workplace, and how they balance their time in school and work. Statement of the Problem This study aimed to find out the academic success of working students in Batangas State University (Main Campus 1).2014-2015. The main purpose of this study was to determine the academic success of working students in Batangas State University Main Campus I. The study attempted to determine the constraints experienced by working students and how they managed their time in work and at school. Specifically, it sought to answer the following questions: 1. What is the profile of working students in terms of: 1.1 age 1.2 sex 1.3 nature of work 1.4 working hours 1.5 working time; and 1.6 performance as to General Weighted Average (GWA). 2. To what extent do the......

Factors Affecting the Academic Performance of Selected Working Student

...Factors Affect the Academic Performance of Selected Working Student Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction / Background of the Study Student jobs have become a sort of trend among students around the world, who want to work while they are studying. In short, the term that suits this trend is 'Earn and Learn' policy. Other reason why student jobs are popular among students is they help to cope up with the constant increase in tuition fees, and a way to afford further educations. The problem has been developed with the question as to how the corresponding workloads and required working hours of working students affect their academic performance at University of Caloocan- Camarin Campus. As a researcher, the main purpose of the study is to know the factors that affect the academic performance of working students. In addition, this paper aims to provide encouragement and motivation to all students especially those who are financially distressed to pursue and finish a college degree in order to be competitive in the future and be able to realize their goals and aspirations. It may also provide learning experiences and information to other students who are not working. In order to accomplish our objectives, we adopted several methodologies in obtaining data and information such as conducting surveys by providing questionnaires to our subjects, getting information in the internet and conducting interviews personally and honestly with our target subjects......

... of successful countries, especially in the Asian region – the service sector followed suit in this framework of industrialization. Time and time again, this research paper will dwell on the two proposed causes: the policy of the government and the property of the governed. This synoptically explains the question of whether our economy should be agriculture-based or industry-based, and the question of how successful is the agrarian reform program in terms of proper (formalistic) land distribution and ownership. For a clearer perspective, let us have a look-see first on where the country economically stands right now, and why we have to constrain our use of the term “fail or failure” as presently the means and not the end of this paper. The statement of the problem also reveals that it is actually a two-part question: the success of capitalism in other countries, and the failure of the former in the Philippines. Before we begin, however, in giving out a brief description of the Philippine economy today, the researcher would like to indulge the reader in explaining the metaphor used in the title of this introductory chapter. Its importance will be unraveled since the fire metaphor will be alluded to by the researcher time and time again. Comparing capitalism to a spark of economic endeavor and industrialization to its fruition sets the Philippine experience as a running torch-bearer who suddenly lost his pace and stumbled economically into the oblivion of poverty and...
