Be a VIP

The school year is approaching, so beat the rush and begin prepping for fall. As a student dining employee, you can start working by moving in on August 17 with VIP status and have all early move in fees waived. Not living on campus? No problem. You too can beat the rush and begin prepping for fall by working prior to the start of the fall semester. 


  • Early move-in fee waved (for those students living on campus)
  • Receive a VIP college essentials swag bag
  • Beat the rush of move-in by arriving early
  • Meet other student employees and dining staff
  • Complimentary meal for each shift worked
  • Performance based wage increases
  • Consistent and flexible work hours
  • Advancement opportunities to be a student lead or manager
  • Attend the early move-in event at Hubbard Park with food, music, and fun activities

How to Qualify

  • Must work two full pay cycles or you will be required to pay back costs.
  • Between August 18, 2019, and August 25, 2019, students must work a minimum of 20 hours per week (maximum of 40 hours) to qualify for early move-in. Hours for the remainder of the semester are determined by agreement between supervisor and employee, not to exceed 20 hours per week.
  • Complete employment paperwork and I-9 information prior to being cleared to work. Located on the following link is a list of I-9 acceptable documents. The form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. You will need to bring one item from List A - OR - two items: one from List B and another from List C when you move to campus to complete your paperwork. Originals are required - no copies, laminated documents, or faxes are accepted. F1 students will need to bring their I-20 as well.
