Student Employee Recognition

National Student Employment Week

National Student Employment Association (NSEA) has declared that the second week of April each year be set aside to celebrate National Student Employment Week. This year, National Student Employment week is April 8-12, 2019.

Washington College recognizes the value of student employees and the important role in student development that working provides.

Our student employees are a vital resource providing a work force supportive of Washington College’s function and mission. Their efforts go far beyond assisting with day to day administrative duties.  They also make significant contributions in terms of energy, creativity and enthusiasm.  

Please take advantage of this opportunity to recognize the outstanding student employees at Washington College.  They are indeed essential to our success. At the same time, thank yourselves for providing the guidance and supervision that assists them in obtaining the skill set they will need to compete in the job market after graduation.
