Benefits spawn from work study

Jontinued from Page 1)
Some stdents get jobs related
to their majors. One such
student, ,ori Hyde, holds two
jobs: Oneat the Central Campus Rec-
reation Bilding, and one at the School
of Specie Education working for a
A STUENT IN the School of Special
Educatir herself, Hyde finds the ex-
periencC invaluable. "I know
professo:now and it helps me know
where I gant to go," she said. She star-
ted out sing general office work and
later bean to work independently
doing resarch.
TOM IMMONS, a senior in the'
School I Dentistry, worked as a
regular mployee in the Oral Histology
Lab at tb Dental Building for over. a
year befre going on work study as an
assistantin research. He has a work
load of 4-36 hours every week, spen-
ding 15 othose hours on the job. "You
really hae to press yourself," he said.
"The wok study office doesn't believe
that a detal student would even want
work stuy."
Many aidents are not attempting to
gain exprience in their concentrations
in theirjobs. McMullen is an
engineerig student who works in the

-i w

Histology lab also. "It's interesting
work," he said. "Work study allows me
to work for my expenses, so I can use
my savings for tuition."
WORK STUDY IS a profitable
program for both employer and
student. "Because they only have to
pay 20 per cent of the work study per-
'son's salary, employers regard this
progran as one of the best bargains on
campus," Tatum said.
"I think it's great," Hyde exclaimed.
"Most departments would just as soon
hire a work study student."
Reactions to work study students
from other students are varied. "Many
students looking for work don't think
it's fair that work study students get all
the work, so I try to explain to them that
work study is a form of financial aid,
but it doesn't always satisfy them,"
Hyde said.
SIMMONS SAID, "Around here (the
Dental School) people would say,
'Where do you get the time?"'
Sobering, he said, "One bad aspect is
that employers rely on work study for
cheap labor, which might cause hard
feelings from someone who wants to
work, but can't because the employer
can't afford to pay a lot."
Students interested in off-campus

jobs apply at T-C (Township County)
Urban Corps in Ypsilanti. The Urban
Corps finds students jobs off-campus in
non-profit agencies or in government
agencies. At the Urban Corps, the
federal government still pays 80 per
cent but the employers must pay 30 per
cent, 20 per cent of which goes to the
student, with the remaining 10 per cent
going toward overhead for the Urban
Corps for such operating costs as:
" Liability insurance
" Coverage under Worker's Compen-
" Payroll and bookkeeping costs
" State and federal withholding state-
" Plus auditing and processing costs
Jobs are offered in the fields of ac-
counting, management, and law
clerking, with a pay rate of $2.75-$8.10
per hour. "We try to place anyone in-
terested in their field in a job, like nur-
sing at free clinics, for nursing studen-
ts," said Roger Tomlinson, coordinator
of the Corps. "We match students to
jobs related to their majors. Our offices
run by students. We produce our own
publications and are entirely self-
THE URBAN CORPS is a depart-
ment of Ypsilanti Township. They

have contracts with the University and
Eastern Michigan University to keep
the program running. During the spring
and summer months, they also act as
coordinators for Michigan State
University. "We are trying to expand
the program because there is potential
to grow. We always have jobs we can't
fill," Tomlinson said.
Robert Beson is a senior with the
Corps working for the Consumer Action
Center as Consumer Mediator. He start-
ed his job through Project Outreach
last year, then received a work study
grant. "I'm learning a lot," he said.
"There's no better way to gain ex-
perience in any field than to calm
people down and have them put their
trust in you. Working in something like
this you get a feeling of community and
friends. You're not dealing with the
microcosm of the University.
"I've had no problems with T-C Ur-
ban Corps. They are business-like. It's
better than business administration
because there is no red tape to deal
with. Yet you're working within the
"Overall, the experience I'm gaining
is more valuable than just the regular
