Highest-paid campus jobs often stay unfilled

In the "real world," high-paying jobs are usually among the most sought-after, but Dartmouth student workers don't appear to be lured by the same incentives. While Dartmouth Dining Services offers the best-paid positions on campus, many of these positions remain unfilled. No students currently work at the Courtyard Cafe in the Hop, and only one student is working in the dish room in Food Court.


Celebrated scientist speaks on space exploration

While there is a chance that humans are alone in the universe, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence will continue, famed scientist Jill Tarter said Thursday in a speech at the 13th annual Karen E.


Student workers give high marks for Collis

Editor's note: This is the fifth in a multi-part series on employment conditions for students at the College. Whether they are making smoothies in the cafe, taking orders in Lone Pine, answering questions at the information desk or striking a stage setup in Common Ground, student employees at Collis are almost always interacting with others. Unlike some other jobs on campus, human interaction is a major aspect of any student position in the Collis Center.


The Blend, Topside attract student workers at DDS

Editor's note: This is the third in a multi-part series on employment conditions for students at the College. Thayer Dining Hall, home to several campus dining facilities, is a place for those looking to make money as well as for those looking to spend it. The Blend and Topside convenience store are two of the most popular spots for student customers, as well as for a disproportionately high number of student employees who choose to work there. The unequal distribution of student employees within Dartmouth Dining Services stems from student preferences for less work-intensive jobs rather than a product of DDS efforts to match the nature of the work with students' qualifications, employees said. "They pick that because there is less to do there," full-time DDS employee Joska Reid said.


Gym's student workers praise monitoring jobs

Editor's note: This is the second in a multi-part series on employment conditions for students at the College. Not all students frequent the Alumni Gym to fight for elliptical machines or tone their biceps. Sean Furey '04 is one of those rare students who find themselves in the gym not to work out but to get paid for monitoring activities and ensuring the safety of others. Sitting at the front desk of Kresge Fitness Center, Furey answers the phone, collects College ID cards of people rushing through the door and checks out sports equipment. In another section of the gym, Michael Hipps '05 sits with a life float in his lap, watching swimmers make laps up and down the lanes of the Karl Michael Swimming Pool. To ensure that they are prepared to act in case of an emergency, all student employees are required to take a CPR test as part of their formal training. "It's a pretty safe pool," Hipps said.


Student employees at Hop praise its variety of job opportunities

Editor's note: This is the first in a multi-part series on employment conditions for students at the College. Selling tickets, stage managing, monitoring an art exhibition, wiping tables or washing dishes in the cafeteria -- many jobs, one location. The Hopkins Center is not just a site for esoteric Scandinavian dance ensemble performances.
