Any work that has not been picked up from the Gallery storage room from earlier shows will be disposed of if not picked up by Monday August 13 in order to make room for incoming pieces.

Four local high schools participate in this program. You MUST be Federal Work Study eligible in order to be a mentor. The rate of pay is $12.00 per hour. Attendance is mandatory at either one of the two meetings—even if you have worked as a mentor in the past. If you absolutely cannot attend one of the sessions due to class conflicts, contact Lacy VanCourt, 626.396.2468 or Elias Gonzalez, 626.396.2369 in Admissions.

Work Study Student Assistants Needed in Student Life

Are you looking for meaningful work on-campus to help pay your bills? Do you need the convenience of not leaving campus to avoid looking for a parking spot and to save more time for studying? Do you want to enjoy a job that gives you an opportunity to meet other students, be involved in fun events, and provide important programs and services to your peers? If all of this sounds ideal, apply for the Office of Student Life Assistant position. If you are work study eligible, please stop by to see Jeffrey Hoffman, Director of Student Life, or the Financial Aid Office to find out if your skills and interests match the job. You can also call
626.396.2325 or email jeffrey.hoffman@artcenter.edu to
express your interest.



On-Campus Recruitment
