Student Employee Appreciation Week Written in chalk on a chalkboard

National Student Employee Appreciation Week is April 13–17, 2020. Each year universities and colleges across the country take time to recognize the substantial contributions of students who work on campus. We at the Center for Entrepreneurship are happy and proud to work with students who dedicate time in their busy academic schedule to assist our faculty and staff in a variety of ways. Their help provides a successful experience for all those who engage with the CFE. So we wanted to acknowledge them and say thank you.
