Pauline Ortiz is a senior officer for a banking union, and a graduate - life was not always so good. She left school at 17 and by 31 she was divorced with two children and no job. Then she heard about Ruskin.

Founded in 1899 Ruskin was the first residential college for working people and for those who had little or no educational opportunity when young.

Every autumn since then, men and women have arrived at the college from a variety of communities and backgrounds, ethnic, industrial, and trade union, to study full-time for the first time in their adult lives.

They will leave with a degree and go on to further study, on return home to make their careers. Few have any recognised educational qualifications when they arrive.

All have a common interest in a society and a desire to improve it. Entry to Ruskin is by interview and is only for students who are 20 and over.

The college is residential and full state grants are available.

If you are motivated to improve society this is your opportunity to gain the education you always wanted - but missed.

Think of where it could get you.

Do You Need a Job?

When I first came to Gainesville, I realized that it is a relatively inexpensive place to live, but I still needed to find a job so I wouldn't have to worry about spending money when going out. Even though my parents helped support me, it was never enough. I felt that a job would give me spending money and allow me to be independent. While there are plenty of things to do without spending money, in order to experience college life to the fullest, it helps to have some extra cash. I have worked throughout college, both on the territory of the university and in town, and have found that there are a lot of jobs in Gainesville for students who may be interested in finding a job that relates to their field of study. As I specialize in advertising, I wanted to find a job that relates to the field, so I looked around and got a job at one of the campus radio stations. I thought that if I had to work while going to university, it might as well be interesting.

One of my friends, a former pre-medical student, worked at Shands Hospital while at university so that he could make some extra money while learning something valuable. He realized that he had no wish to go into any aspect of the medical field and he decided to try something else. Another friend of mine was interested in theatre and got a job at the Hippodrome State Theatre. She said she wasn't sure if theatre was a good field to study. Since she has been working, she has grown to love the theatrical field and would like to someday become an actress.

All of us have gained valuable experience from our jobs. A job can help you find out if you want to go into the field, or if you'll absolutely hate it.

If you are interested in getting a good job on the territory of the university or in town, you need to stop by the Student Employment Office in Criser Hall before the semester begins.
