  • Description of work study / co-ops:

    The student employment office hires students part time during the academic year and full time in the summer. Hundreds of work study jobs are available on and off campus in community service organizations. The office also offers an employment referral service for students looking for employment on or off campus but who are not eligible for Federal work study funding.

  • Is study abroad available? Yes
  • Description of study abroad programs:

    The University has partnerships with more than 70 foreign universities and colleges in approximately 40 countries for student undergraduate exchanges. More than 50 percent of the Class of 2014 will have studied abroad by the end of their junior year. Each year nearly 80 McDonough students participate in our summer programs in Spain and England.

  • Is community service or volunteering available? Yes
  • Description of community service/volunteering:

    Students often volunteer through the Center for Social Justice, taking part in tutoring, mentoring and community projects. There are also seasonal fundraising efforts like the Relay for Life, which are organized and led by McDonough students. In addition, students volunteer with Year Up, an area non-profit which provides training for disadvantaged youths. Our students also participate in a Sophomore Service Project and have recently contributed to improving conditions for Nicaraguan children.
