Student Employee of the Year Program
Our student employees provide a valuable service to the University, and we like to express our appreciation to our student workers by providing this annual event. The Career Center coordinates the Annual Student Employee of the Year Program, including a celebration to honor all student employees at the University.
This event takes place during the second full week in April (this date coincides with the National Student Employment Association(NSEA) Student Employment Week), and includes a reception for our Student Employees. The reception inlcudes a lunch and give-a-ways from local vendors. The Student Employee of the Year Award winners are presented their awards individually.
