Celebrate Student Employee Appreciation Week

Multiple Locations

By Hannah Wagner and Luke Armour

Kent State University's Career Exploration and Development, in collaboration with the Regional Campuses, is celebrating Student Employee Appreciation Week on April 9 to April 16 to recognize Kent State’s 4,300 student workers across the eight-campus system.

Kent State will celebrate this national initiative to give back to students and draw awareness to the contributions student workers make while highlighting the career-enhancing opportunities and skills these jobs give them.

Departments and offices are encouraged to appreciate and honor their student workers throughout the week in addition to the campus events. Stay up to date by following Career Exploration and Development on Twitter for daily reminders of activities next week and use the hashtag #FlashesAtWork to share your own appreciation and events.

Throughout the week, campuses will offer free food, giveaways, mascot visits, luncheons and raffles to thank all the student employees for the hard work they perform throughout the year. All students from any campus are welcome to attend other events at the Kent Campus.
