Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

The Veterans Administration also provided a subsidence allowance of $50 a month for veterans without dependents and $75 for those with dependents. That money did not go far for veterans supporting a family and many took part-time jobs on campus. In this 1948 photograph, veteran students are cleaning up the student cafeteria. Veterans also cleaned windows, swept out the Hive, painted buildings, and delivered mail to various buildings. Veterans who needed additional cash could also apply to the FJC Veterans Memorial Loan Fund, established after World War II.
