The ACC is an open lab located within the Evans Library.
The University offers faxing services to the students at the Student Activities Department (second floor of the Student Union Building) during normal business hours. Additionally, faxing services offered at the Copy Center.
Students have several opportunities to work on-campus with many departments, whether for academic or employment experience.
On-campus job positions will be posted in Workday. Federal Work Study positions are listed as 'FWS Eligible' or 'FWS Only'. College Role positions are listed without this type of indicator.
Once a student secures an on-campus position, be sure to review the Workday Student Employee Resources page for information about updating your profile, accessing training resources, and submitting hours worked via timesheets.
Additionally, Career Services has resources to assist students with their job search for off-campus positions.
