      The point of this lesson is to make your "work study" assignment (if you get one) into your "study hall" (a time when you do some of your studying). For example, if your work study is running a service desk somewhere (like, to check people into and out of a gymnasium), when there are no clients to serve, read your homework. Don't just sit around playing video games on your phone.

Video transcript

- I wanted to look for jobs that I could work every single day but that I could study and work at the same time. And I found a great front desk position which allowed me to do that, and it was like a work-study program that just saved my life, so all of those things helped me pay for college.
