Gear Up for Student Employee Appreciation Week

Update | Tuesday, April 6, 2021

Student Employee Appreciation Week is a time to celebrate the accomplishments of our student employees and to raise awareness of the student employment experience. It will be held April 12-16. If you have College Work-Study or Federal Work-Study students in your department, consider showing your appreciation to them directly. Here are some example activities: 

  • Send their favorite lunch via delivery
  • Mail a handwritten thank you note
  • Hold a virtual team lunch and allow everyone to share thanks
  • Drop off a treat/snack bag 
  • Anything else to let them know you appreciate them!

Career Services has several virtual events planned for the week, including a Netflix Watch Party, mini Job Fair, and Student Employment Awards. View event details and RSVP on Cougar Connect

We are still accepting 20-30 second videos from staff sharing brief thanks and appreciation for our student employee to be featured in a Daily Dose special issue. Submit here by Friday, April 9.

Contact Amanda Perk at for questions.
