    How to Make Money in College?

    Just looking for any random help. I'm trying to find a way to make money while at college. I know you all are thinking, get a job. (I get that a lot from my parents), but I'm taking 24 credit hours and need to find a way to make my next few school bill payments. I tried the whole ebay thing, somewhat unsucessfully though. Is there any legitimate online jobs out their, or any other idea anybody can think of. Any help would be incredibly appreciated. Thanks guys!

    Sports official.

    I've refereed soccer at one level or another since I was 12. Once I graduated HS, I obtained my High School license. I was able to earn enough in the fall soccer seasons to pay cash for each spring semester's tuition.

    A buddy of mine does youth rec basketball on the weekends. Makes $20 a game for elementary-aged kids. Figuring 5-6 games each on Saturday and Sunday, that's quite a bit of dough. And, it's all cash...tax free.

    There are also magazine scanning routes that pay well.

    You go around and scan bar codes of magazines in grocery tores to make sure the current editions are on the racks. Most of the time you just stop in at you leisure and make copies of all the magazines and then scan them at home.

    My friend makes $800 a month doing this part-time.

    Take fewer classes and get a job working on campus.

    Also, get a job durring summer, winter breaks, spring break, etc. Work as many hours as you can and sock away the cash. I did double shifts, over time, closed, picked up shifts, etc. On spring break (which is only 1 week) I'd work open to close 7 straight days. I was a cook in a resturant and since I worked hard, had 1/3 of a brain and had worked there since I was a sophmore in highschool they let me come and go as I please and would feed me all the hours I could stand. I made pretty decent money.

    Then I didn't have to work as hard durring the school year.

    Also, consider living on campus and being an RA/floor superviosor. That usually gives you free room and board which cuts down on expenses. It's not hard work at all, and at Wright State you got a much nicer room for being an RA.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Decide to *ahem* "donate" certain creatable fluids to certain repudible organizations which collect said fluids.

    You won't be making money hand over fist with that plan - or wait, I take that back, you will be. But it'll help pay for a nice meal every now and then.

    Paint apartments. Lots of turnover in apartment community of college towns. Students always trash the walls of places they reside. Some leasing agents/apartment owners will be painting an apartment somewhere each and every week.

    Mow lawns. Work on your tan while you make beer money. Every once in awhile, you may even have to break out the weed eater. But for the most part, is it strictly riding mower work.

    You're telling me they don't have jobs on campus for athletes? My job was to "watch" the weight room. There was a couch, a desk and a TV, so I laid on the couch and watched TV, studied or talked to girls. Occasionally I had to spot someone, but for the most part it was an easy job, and pretty much all other athletes had similar easy jobs.

    You'll have to check with your compliance officer to see what jobs are acceptable per the NCAA.

    When I was at Syracuse on their crew team for a year, all employment had to be ok'd by our CO.

    When I was at Ohio State for 1/2 a season of golf, I was told we weren't allowed to have jobs during the season.
