The tuition at Hofstra University, the largest private university on Long Island is close to $40 thousand dollars, but Jane Doe, equipment room manager and student, manages to defray that cost by working a few hours each night. She also gets to learn more about the media equipment and meet new friends.


Jane Doe is the face of the equipment room for any Hofstra Communication student who wants to borrow media gear.



“I find it incredibly rewarding, and I get to learn about the equipment, too,” she said about the benefits of her job.
