Introduction
Many college students work part-time.  Does this affect their school performance?  Employment during school could improve grades if working fosters attributes that are complementary with academic success, such as industriousness or time management skills, or instead reduce grades by constraining time and energy available for schoolwork. Alternatively, working might be correlated with academic performance, yet not directly impact it, if unobserved student differences influence both labor supply and grades.   Most college students face many challenges in their already busy everyday lives. Some students work full or part time while attending college. Others also support families of their own in addition to working full time while furthering their education. The strain of this extra Workload can be overwhelming at times, causing the seemingly easy things in life to become a struggle. Unfortunately, the consequence of this responsibility to one’s education is the additional stress at home, work, and school.

Yet another involves working through the stress physically which also has the benefit of improved health.   A number of people may deal with stress in harmful ways. Some students are endangering themselves trying to relieve stress. Some may engorge themselves on junk food, eating relentlessly as a pacifier for the stress. Others gather by the ashtray with their nicotine sticks, smoking the stress away; knowing they can get addicted to very harmful substances that could eventually cause them health problems later in life. Many people keep the stress bottled up inside, this keeps their nerves on the edge.

Background of the Studies
