More college students are working while studying
Working through college won’t cover all of a student’s education expenses. It can lighten the debt burden, though, and pay off in other ways — good news for the growing number of students who work while attending school.
A new study from Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce finds that, over the past 25 years, more than 70 percent of college students have worked while attending school. And the number of working students has grown as college enrollment and tuition have increased.
