For students who are a part of the work-study program, the added element of work can provide help with bills and give students extra spending money for a few hours outside of class per week.
Federal work-study requires the college to pay students federal minimum wage, which is currently $7.25 an hour. Students cannot earn more than their work-study award in a semester. Baylor also offers jobs to students who do not receive federal work-study, but they must wait three weeks after the school year begins to apply for student worker positions.

Baylor students have a chance to turn their trash into someone else’s treasure at Mu Phi Epsilon’s “End-of-the-Year Yard Sale” fundraiser.
The event will begin at 4 p.m. Friday outside the McCrary Music Building and the entire Baylor community is encouraged to not only shop around but to sell their own items.
