National Student Employee Appreciation Week

Celebrating student employees

Every year during the second full week of April, the Office of Student Employment hosts National Student Employee Appreciation Week. Students on and off campus are recognized for their hard work and efforts to support their workplaces. 

There are many ways that you can get involved during appreciation week as an off-campus employer by celebrating with us or on your own. See the various involvement opportunities below.
