NEW COLLEGE Page 2 Not every student who works off eampua, however, found his job through the student employment service. Earlier in the year two third-year Rtudents joined a construction trade union so they could do day-labor when their cla a schedules permit. Others bava worked as waiters, waitresses, and busboys, and ome have de livered furnitur Another student, whose family fled Cuba sev ral years ago, teaches Spanish two hours a week to a woman who lives ne r the college. Several coeds regularly find baby-sitting jobs without the help of the service. A big probl orking students must overcome is the limited amount of t1 they have available to work. Depending on their clss schedules, ny students find it impossible to work for long, uninterrupted periods. Instead, they must and wicb jobs in b tween classes. Students who have on-campus jobs may work no more than 15 hours per week and the college recommends that no stud nt work ore than that at any 1ob. Communiaating the existence of the servie and the fact that there are ny students who want to work is another big problem. With no chance to dvertise their willingness to work studants have to depend on fro their satisfied eDployera. Aronoff described tbe eoat of student labor as "moderate" and said anyone interested in hiring students can contact hi by phone at the Reception Center on the !aat Clulpua of New College. Be said students do not liadt themselves to working only for individual but will work for a busineaa aa well. -3o-
