HSSP and biology or neuroscience double major, member of the varsity volleyball team, active participant in her off-campus church and devoted Waltham Group volunteer—this student scholar, Grace Krumpack ’19, finds peace in her work-study job at the info booth in the Shapiro Campus Center (SCC).

“This has been a really awesome getaway,” said Krumpack. With such a busy schedule, Krumpack has felt her work-study has helped her balance school work with all her other co-curricular activities she tackles. “Even though I’m busier, it makes me stay on top of my work,” insisted Krumpack.

After her first year on campus, Krumpack knew she wanted to take advantage of work-study and get a job for the upcoming year. “I wanted to support myself more. My parents have given me a lot … and have done so much for me to get me where I am. I want to be able to support myself and give back to them in any way that I can,” she said.

Krumpack had no trouble getting an on-campus job. After browsing available jobs online, she applied for the Campus Center Team last spring and was able to secure the info booth job for the fall.

Much to Krumpack’s surprise, the community she has found in her job has been the most rewarding component. “We are so diverse,” Krumpack explained. “I think I’ve met AAAS majors, econ majors, WGS majors, English majors.” In just three weeks, Krumpack feels she has grown close to her co-workers and cannot imagine being on campus without them and their support.
