Getting an on-campus job has new meaning at Boston’s Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology, where technology support company PlumChoice has opened a call center staffed exclusively by Ben Franklin students.

The call center opened in early August and, at the moment, 15 students are working there part-time, fielding calls from PlumChoice customers who are having problems with their PCs. The students earn between $13 and $15 an hour and receive paid time off, tuition reimbursement and some other benefits, according to PlumChoice, which is based in Lowell.
