National Student Employee Appreciation Week

Last week from April 11 to April 15 was the annual Student Employee Appreciation Week. During this week, colleges and universities all over the United States recognize the work of the student workforce on campus.

Working on campus gives students the opportunity to develop skills and to be prepared to enter the job market after graduation. Student employees perform invaluable services with enthusiasm, dedication, and initiative.

I was unaware that Embry-Riddle employs more than 1000 student workers on the Daytona Beach campus. That’s a high number!

Students could enjoy different food options throughout the week. On Monday, the student employment office offered donuts, fruits, and granola bars for breakfast. Meatball subs were available for lunch the next day and Subway subs were offered on Wednesday. On Thursday, the student community could enjoy a slice of pizza. On the last day of the week, ice cream was served in cups.

During the week, student employees were also able to select an item from an “everybody wins gift basket.” Other gifts such as hotel vouchers will be¬†awarded to random winners this week. Student workers, don’t forget to check your email to see if you won a prize!

I have been a student employee for almost a year writing blogs for Admissions and Recruitment. I enjoy sharing some of my life events with you, the ERAU community!

Until next time!
