Did anyone else have a "Campus Job" while at LSU? Do they still have them?

I had one in the late 90's in accounting department and got paid $5.25. Part of my duties were to scan documents in Microfiche and notate breaks in the documents. The best part was when I would got to take the department car and bring boxes to storage which happened to be in the old tiger stadium dorms. I had keys to get in and once you were in there you could wander through the whole stadium. Some of the dorms looked like people moved out in a hurry...they left all kinds of personal items like pictures, text books, notebooks, clothes, test papers etc. After burning a few hours wandering in tiger stadium I'd drive around campus and find buddies that were going to or from class and pick them up and drive around campus in the campus car and harass chicks. Those were the good old days.

Worked at the front desk at The Cox Center about a decade ago. Basically just checked guys in for tutoring appts and did whatever they asked. Forget what I got paid but it wasn’t much 8-9 bucks an hour or something. Pretty easy job.

They do it as a way to give a scholarship without having to give a scholarship.

Not at LSU, but I did have a school job to se up the Lab for Physics experiments. Occasionally I stayed overnight and slept in the supply room connected to the Lab on an air mattress with a sleeping bag on it. CSB.

Back in the 60s I had a student job at Records and Registration. I boxed and moved old records out of the very dusty and hot attic to put them on microfiche. Every day I would go into the mens restroom next to the R&R office. Years later, we moved back to BR after I got out of the Air Force, and my wife got a job at R&R. One day, I went to pick her up and walked into the restroom out of habit. I thought something was different as I walked in, but did not panic until I saw someone in heels walk into the stall next to me. I then realized that they had converted this room to a womens room. I quickly pulled up my pants and prayed as I walked out that no one would be in the hall. I was lucky....I still laugh at that close call.....and I always check before I go into a restroom.

I supervised the loading dock and dry good/cold storage facilities for the Student Union '79 & '80 (makes me old as dirt). One of the perks was free meals from the cafeteria. When you're 21 and cooking for yourself that's gourmet food! How's the food in the cafeteria these days?

I had a job at Audio Visual Services where I delivered overhead projectors or tv's around campus. Best job in the world. Only had to deliver one or maybe two over a 3 or 4 hour period. Rest of time was my study hour. Never had to do homework otherwise. Got it all in and got paid in the process. We also set up the 19in TV's in Tiger Stadium on Friday's. That was cool because we got to steal ice-cream in the club section. That cooler was never locked.

Better hire your asbestos attorney if you put items in storage in Tiger Stadium

Officiated basketball games and umpired softball games in the intramural leagues - paid $4.00 / game. Hourly rate for other campus jobs was less than a dollar.

Helped set up track meets.

Had a job as basically a secretary in the Theater Dept. I was not a theater guy. I got chewed out by the head theater guy for spelling “professor” with two Fs and one S. On a typewriter. In 2003. He chewed me out like Saban does on a guy that misses a block. That was my last day there.

I worked in the office of parking traffic and transportation.

They had a couple of jeeps that I would drive around campus running errands and listening to Jim Rome. It was a sweet gig.

Yes, they still have them. I'm a student and work at the library. A friend of mine works with the football team for recruiting.
