says, “The money I earn covers the
tuition that I have to pay for on my
own.” Weber also has a work-study job.
John Trollinger works at Camp
Tekoa in Hendersonville on the
weekends. John earns $100 a weekend
(Friday-Sunday). John instructs groups
in rock climbing, ropes, and leads with
activities and discussions. He uses the

Another BC student who currently
works at the new Brevard Food Outlet is
on his seventh job in Brevard. Jay Ford
is a waiter at Saffron’s. Jay works an
average of 25 hours a week, including
weekends. Most of the students who
have off campus jobs say that it was not
difficult to find a job.
Many students on campus have
jobs known as “work-study” jobs. The
students who have these jobs are usually
under financial aid. Lisanne Masterson,
the Director of Financial Aid, is in
charge of the Work Study program.
There are 60 jobs available to the
students on campus.
The hourly wage for students is
$4.50 per hour. The students work an
average of eight hours a week. The
students get paid once a month, and the
money comes from the Federal
Government and Brevard College. The
Federal Government puts up most of the
money, while Brevard College matches a
percentage of the money. Students can
earn up to one thousand dollars per year.
There are certain disclosed limits.
Students must qualify for financial
aid in order to be eligible to have a
work-study job. Masterson said,
“students think they can just walk in
and get a job, but they must qualify.”
Jobs on campus range from
working in the computer lab, the Office
of Public Information, the music library
in Dunham, the Transfer Office, and
many more. The jobs in the cafeteria
and lifeguards at the pool are not run by
“work-study”. It is hard to find students
who are certified lifeguards on work-
study, so students can ask the person in
charge of the pool in the gym. The
cafeteria is run by a separate company.
One can ask the manager in the cafeteria
if there are any openings.
Resident Assistants are run by the
Student Affairs Office, and students may
inquire about an RA position with their
There are no jobs available right
now. At the beginning of each semester
students who want work-study jobs are
put on a waiting list.
This year’s Health Fair presents
new theme: ‘The New You
by Josh Adams
Clarion Staff Writer
The health fair this year will have a
different face. In fact, it will not even
have the same atmosphere as past health
fairs. This time it will be titled “New
You Day”. Pat Jenkins, the campus
nurse, is the director of the fair, and
explained what the new concept will be.
“The New You” will take place on
April 21 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in
the Rutherford Room adjacent to the
dinning hall. Several local
