This may be a late response, but I wouldn't recommend working at all if you are going full-time your first year. I don't know if TSU has a part-time evening program, but if they do, you can work and go part-time. The first year really is all-consuming and in order to make it to 2L, you'll need to work your @$% off. A job will just add more stress. I suggest looking into work study program so you could work on campus and be able to study. Hope that helps.
