Student Employment Office
Student Employee Appreciation Days
Each year, GVSU celebrates the National Employment Appreciation Week by engaging student employees in a variety of activities to promote and appreciate all of their hard work.
The Student Employment Office hosts a weeklong celebration to thank student Employees for all that they do, in a variety of ways. It is once again time to show GVSU's 3,500 plus student workers how highly they are valued. This year the annual Student Employee Appreciation Days will take place April 8 through April 12, 2013.
We've layed out all of the details for each event below. Help us spread the word about this celebration by posting information in your office, encouraging your student workers to attend events, & planning an event of your own! Departments are encouraged to celebrate their student workers on Monday, don't be afraid to get creative!
