National Student Employment Week

National Student Employment Week is celebrated on the second full week in April every year. Colleges and universities across the country take time to recognize the importance of student employees. Student employees perform invaluable services with enthusiasm, dedication, and initiative. Setting aside a special week to draw the awareness of others, both on and off campus, is the perfect opportunity to show your appreciation.

Nearly one-third of Iowa State students work on campus. Studies show that student employment is a powerful tool for students – helping with time management, connection to campus, and development of career readiness skills. We also know they have a huge impact on the work we do on campus.

Check out this short appreciation video for our student employees.
