I remember one of my favorite jobs in college. I was in charge of taking minutes at the Student Government meetings. Yes, I got paid for that. It’s pretty amazing that you essentially are being paid to eavesdrop. Considering that debates would get pretty heated this was certainly a more interesting pursuit than swiping people into the physical fitness center. Plus, I spent enough time there.
Living in the dorms and being on the meal plan kept my costs low. Not everyone has that opportunity. At my college over 90% of people lived in dorms all 4 years–it may or may not have had something to do with the fact that I went to school in Manhattan, so exorbitant dorm prices beat out exorbitant rent prices. I remember scrounging for change to get snacks from the vending machine, going to any meeting involving pizza, and illegally hoarding food from the cafeteria and other Animal House-style boilerplate college money-saving antics. Still, rent and food are another aspect of college you have to consider–especially since the average rent in London is $400-$950 dollars a month–depending on whether or not you have roommates.
My least favorite job was probably stuffing envelopes for a doctor in his apartment with his family members. It was a part-time job offered on the school’s website, even though it was for a role not exactly at the school. He was pretty cool, it was just a bit weird to be sitting at a stranger’s dining room table folding papers. However, it DID allow me to make a few extra bucks which I’m sure I promptly spent on enormous pizza slices or maybe I splurged and bought a roast beef sandwich from the fancier deli–or even a wrap! There was a heavenly wrap store nearby my campus that is now sadly closed. Clearly, my priority is food, not booze; I was not the most exciting college student. You never know, maybe I spent a bit of my part-time job money on a plastic bottle of alcohol; thanks for the memories, Georgi!
