Growing Number of Students Stay On-the-Job over Break

Forty-five students were hired by our Corporate Work Study Program partners to work throughout the Christmas break, almost a 50 percent increase over last year, when 30 students were hired, and a significant increase over 2014, when 10 students were invited to work over the holidays.
