Top 10 Jobs on Campus

3 of 11

Resident Assistant

Free housing and a single room aren't the only perks this job offers. RAs are usually offered a stipend that gets dispersed over time, so they receive a paycheck every two weeks or so. RAs also have the luxury of returning early from break, and are sometimes allowed to park for free on campus!

However, this gig isn't all fun and games. RAs often encounter difficult situations over the course of a semester, such as dealing with underage drinking and disgruntled residents. Candidates for this job need a thick skin and good people skills, and need to be prepared to deal with tough situations.
