The Creighton Student-Worker: A Study of Fifty Students Who are Working their Way Through the Creighton College of Arts and Sciences
A number of popular fallacies have clustered about the problem of student employment. Many offer criticisms that the students who work are deprived of time for diversion, that they are forced to neglect their lessons, and that they have no time to participate in campus activities. It has been stated, too, that the work is a menace to health. The writer, with the thought that all such notions on the subject might be subjective, endeavored to investigate the problem by a sufficient body of objective data. The study described herein was undertaken in order to determine, (1), whether or not working while attending college was a handicap to scholastic attainment, (2), whether or not it impaired the student's health, and (3), whether this self help prevented the student from enjoying a normal college life. Briefly, the writer's objective is to answer the question, "Just what is the condition of the working student?"
