Alice Lloyd College

Student Work Program

Work Study 7

Hide Alice Lloyd is one of the nation’s seven work colleges. Students who attend ALC work for their education. They are the receptionists, the computer technicians, the groundskeepers, the gardeners, the lifeguards, the dorm supervisors, the secretaries, the bookstore salespeople, and more.

Opportunity to Work and Learn

Work has been a central part of the Alice Lloyd College experience since the College’s founding in 1923 when Alice Lloyd developed her own financial aid program that required all students to work. Students worked to provide needed services for the College community and also to provide the opportunity to pay for their education. Today, the Student Work Program is intended to be not only an earning experience, but a learning experience as well. It is designed to teach students the meaning of responsible leadership, self-discipline, and self-reliance. It also enhances the total educational program through the teaching of skills, responsibilities, attitudes, and habits associated with work.

Requiring students to work is truly a distinctive feature of Alice Lloyd College, and so committed is the College to the concept of student labor that successful completion of the work requirement is a graduation requirement.

The program requires every full-time student to work a minimum of 10 hours per week and 160 hours per semester at an on-campus or off-campus job.

These jobs are varied and all students are paid at the prevailing minimum wage rate. All on-campus jobs are necessary to the normal operations of the College, and the off-campus jobs help provide needed services in the surrounding communities.

Hide Graduates of work colleges report that their college better prepared them for their current job as compared with their peers.

Some of the areas in which students work are the Hunger Din (campus dining facility), grounds, maintenance, intramurals, the library, Student Services, and community services. They also serve as academic and administrative assistants, public building janitors, dorm janitors, Resident Advisors, and lifeguards.

Students are assigned positions as freshmen, and usually serve their first year in basic services such as campus maintenance, food service in the Hunger Din, and janitorial duties. Before their arrival on campus, new students will complete a form that provides information about their previous work experience, as well as any special skills they may possess. This information is useful in filling positions that may require prior experience. After the freshman year, students may seek positions of their choice by filling out a Job Preference Form and attracting the attention of the supervisor of the area in which they are interested. Providing there is a vacancy and not extenuating circumstances, returning students will be allowed to work at the job of their choice the following school term. Students are encouraged to seek positions that relate to their majors.

The Student Work Program will:

1. Promote a sense of dignity through work.

2. Promote a sense of service to others.

3. Enrich the educational program through experiential learning opportunities.

4. Provide students with monetary means to help finance their educational expenses and help gain a sense of accomplishment.

5. Enhance students’ career opportunities.

Job descriptions for all positions are available in the Student Work Office, which is in the Brown & Green Building.

Operation of the Student Work Program

The Program is supervised by the Director of the Student Work Program with the help of Student Work Supervisors who are in charge of the 14 different departments. Together they are responsible for assigning, scheduling, and evaluating student work, the weekly recording of hours, and the assessment of penalties for work rule violations.

A student’s job will be determined prior to registration week. Work begins the first day of classes. However, some assignments will begin on Monday of registration week; in such cases, those involved will be notified. Jobs are assigned on the basis of class schedule (when a student is free to work), the student’s preference and skills (a questionnaire helps determine skills and experience), departmental demands, and the availability of the various jobs remaining after the upperclassmen are given their jobs.

No student or group of students is exempt from any position in the Student Work Program at Alice Lloyd College. However, every effort will be made to place students in positions that enable them to fulfill their Student Work Program obligation to the College. Wherever possible, the College tries to provide experiences that help students to qualify for careers after the completion of their education. Please refer to the Student Work Program Handbook for rules and regulations.

Work Awards and Olympics

One outstanding worker from each work area is given recognition for his or her accomplishments. He or she is presented with a plaque at the annual Student Work Awards Convocation. The work areas include: academic aides, administrative assistants, ALC Admissions Team, Campbell Arts Center janitors, The June Buchanan School janitors, computer lab workers, computer technicians, craft shop workers, daycare, campus maintenance/grounds, guest house janitors, gym janitors, Hunger Din workers, intramurals, June Buchanan Alumni Center janitors, Andersen Science Center janitors, library assistants, lifeguards, maintenance workers, men’s and women’s dorm janitors, men’s and women’s Resident Advisors, WWJD-FM Radio Station/Marketing & Communications workers, Davis Student Center janitors, and library janitors.

In addition, a work award is given for each of the following categories: Outstanding Student Worker of the Year, Outstanding Supervisor of the Year, and Senior Work Award. The Senior Work Award is based on the performance of a student worker’s entire time at Alice Lloyd College.

The Student Work Olympics, a series of fun games among competing work groups, begins immediately following the Student Work Awards Convocation. At the end of the day, scores for each event are tallied and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams are determined. These teams are recognized at the evening meal (generally a picnic when the weather permits). The first place team is given an award, which is usually a pizza party for all team members that participated in the Olympics. This event is organized with the help of the Student Work Committee, Student Work Supervisors and assistants, the Director of the Student Work Program, the administrative assistants, custodians, and many other volunteers.
