“I take the shuttle into Boston on the weekends with my friends. A lot of them haven't been to Faneuil Hall and I've lived close to the city all of my life, so I'm always the one to show them around. So it's really fun to go away on the weekend with the girls.”

Federal Work-Study Campus Employment
Overview and guidelines
This program provides part-time jobs for eligible undergraduate students and is administered in accordance with federal and state laws and regulations. Work-study students have an opportunity to work on campus to help pay for educational related expenses. Work-study is a great way to build a resume and recommendation/references, and to gain valuable work experience while contributing to Curry College's operations, student life, and the campus community.
If you have a Work-Study Award included on your Financial Aid Award Letter from Curry College issued by Student Financial Services then you are eligible for Work-Study positions. For information on how to apply for this type of financial aid contact Curry College's Student Financial Services.
