For many people, the college years turn out to be some of the best and most memorable of all. Youth and freedom often combine in ways that make each day exciting and engaging, something that cannot always be said of those that follow later on. As a result, a great many college students struggle with how best to fill their schedules in order to maximize the considerable rewards that result. For students who are committed to combining work with studies and time for relaxation, the demands can be especially impressive.
At Stanford University, for example, many students take great pleasure in working at the school’s unique, student-run shop. With the ability to sell Stanford-branded merchandise to the general public, the store has a guaranteed draw and never lacks for business. Staffed and managed entirely by students, it is also a source of support for many activities and groups on campus, as its profits are passed on to the student body at large.
That alone would make the student shop an interesting, popular part of campus life, but there are ways by which it stands out even more. While it might normally be expected that running such a serious business would be more than a group of students could handle, that turns out not to be the case. An advanced software system called ShopWorx helps Stanford college students manage a busy retail operation while still having time for their studies and other responsibilities.
Why this works has quite a bit to do with the nature of the software in question. The mission of the store at Stanford is to provide branded apparel and the like, and these accessories entail a very specific set of demands and duties. With the ShopWorx system being designed from the ground up to accommodate exactly this sort of business, students find that they can get quite a bit done in a short amount of time.
What could otherwise turn out to be simply too demanding for full-time students to contemplate therefore ends up being entirely manageable and more. As a result, students who work at the store have another fascinating way of making their college years that much more enjoyable, rewarding, and exciting.
