Can a student work more than one job on-campus?

Yes, students can work more than one position on-campus at Pepperdine.  IMPORTANT: Students cannot work more than 20 hours per week during the school year and no more than 29 hours per week when classes are not in session.  For example, during the school year a student can work 5 hours a week in the Payson Library, 10 hours a week with Athletics Office, and 5 hours a week in the Weisman Museum (which is a total of 20 hours a week.)
