Many students at Grossmont College may find themselves wondering how they can make a bit more money. Paying for new classes, supplies, as well as gas money to commute to the campus, can rack up the average student’s bill.  Fortunately, there are plenty of on-campus opportunities this semester for work, including some that may apply for experience in the subject a student is majoring in.  Students may consider the idea to pursue an on campus job which could be a wise choice for any student attending Grossmont.
