Student Employment

Body: 
The Student Employment Office (SEO) was created to provide a “one stop resource” for Delaware State University students concerning all matters of student employment.  We are dedicated to helping students locate jobs on campus and ensuring that students maximize the value of their employment experiences. We believe that having an on campus job helps students become more involved with DSU community, provides valuable work experience, and helps build transferable skills and habits that will benefit future career options.  The Student Employment Office, an integral part of the Office of Career Services, is based on a philosophy of providing valuable work experience for degree-seeking students through the performance of jobs on or off campus and providing employment venues that assist with financial support to the student’s academic studies. Student employment on or off campus gives students the opportunity for practical experience in the world of work comparable to emerging occupations. Practical work offers knowledge, skills, and abilities attractive to future employers and complements their academic credentials. Financial assistance in the form of on and off campus work should be responsive to the student’s class hours and schedule. However, a student’s financial need should not override relative merit and qualifications when departments make hiring decisions. To enter the start your job search, click here.

Campus Dining Facilities The Department of Housing and Residential Education collaborates with University Food services, which operates the University's food service facilities. The staff of the University Food Services works in each dining location to offer a variety of balanced and high quality meals to students. The goal of our Delaware State University food service program is to provide a variety of high quality and nutritious foods in a pleasant dining atmosphere. Menus include a wide selection of popular foods. There are several dining locations throughout the campus. Serving hours vary by location, with some options available from early morning until 10 p.m. each day. Being part of a residence hall community allows students to meet and interact with others while enjoying their meals in any of our dining locations. For more detailed information about our food service, please refer to the Dining Services Guide that is provided in your room, or visit www.desu.campusdish.com University Village Cafe is an all-you-care-to-eat dining facility. The Village Cafe offers a wide variety of menu options including home-style entrees, fresh salad bar, made to order deli sandwiches, grilled sandwiches, homemade soups, pizza and fresh baked desserts. To keep the menu interesting, we include a number of special dining events and monotony breakers, but we never miss Soul Food Night, every Thursday dinner.   Conrad Dining Hall is a newly converted all-you-care-to-eat residential restaurant featuring a smokehouse BBQ concept, a full-service grill, a brand new salad bar, delicious sandwiches at our deli counter, soup and desserts. This location also is host to dining events, including its own Soul Food Night every Tuesday.   Grille Works at the MLK Jr. Student Center is located on the ground floor of the MLK Jr. Student Center and has a wide menu that includes mouth-watering burgers, grilled and fried chicken sandwiches, turkey and veggie burgers, French fries and mozzarella sticks.   Montague's at the MLK Jr. Student Center is located next to Grille Works, where you can purchase a made-to-order salad or a fresh pressed Panini sandwich. Montague's will be replaced by Chick-fil-A, beginning in January 2013.   The Hub at the MLK Jr. Student Center is DSU's campus convenience store. Here you can purchase a meal on the go, a quick snack, cold beverage or a bottle of detergent - whatever you need, you can probably find it here. Beginning January 2013, The Hub will include a brand new SUBWAY location.   The Market Place is located on the first floor of the Administration Building and offers freshly prepared sandwiches, salads, snacks and Starbucks Coffee.     How Meal Plans Work DSU offers several different meal plans to accommodate each student's needs. Meal plans are based within 7 days with 3 meals offered Monday thru Friday, and 2 meals on Saturday and Sunday - brunch (combination of both breakfast and lunch) and dinner. Flex dollars are added to a student's DSU ID card with each meal plan. Students living in traditional residence halls are required to sign up for a 19-meal plan, 15-meal plan, or 10-meal plan; students living in University Village Apartments must choose at least a 10-meal plan; and students living in University Courtyard Apartments are not required to sign up for a meal plan.   19-Meal Plan A 19-meal plan offers all 3 meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week (Sunday-Saturday). This is the largest meal plan that DSU offers.   15-Meal Plan A 15-meal plan offers 15 meals throughout a 7-day period (Sunday-Saturday), which means a student can eat any combination of breakfast, lunch or dinner which totals up to 15 meals during this period.   10-Meal Plan A 10-meal plan offers 10 meals throughout a 7-day period (Sunday-Saturday), which means a student can eat any combination of breakfast, lunch or dinner which totals up to 10 meals during this period.   Commuter Meal Plan DSU commuters can opt to have a commuter meal plan - which is 5 meals within a 7 day period (Sunday-Saturday). How Flex Dollars Work At the beginning of each semester, every student with a meal plan receives 100 flex dollars. These flex dollars are "loaded" onto a students DSU ID card, and can be used at all dining locations during all regular business hours. When items are purchased at the above locations, the student presents their DSU ID card and the cashier deducts the cost from their flex dollar account.  You may purchase additional flex dollars to be added to a student's account by calling the Cashier's Office at (302) 857-6220.
