Campus Rec is proud to honor the many contributions and accomplishments of its student employees. The Recreation Center could not function without a team of over 350 students working in every aspect of the organization--customer service, facility services, security, programs, marketing/outreach and business operations.
THE PROGRAM. The Student Employee of the Month program looks to recognize those students who go above and beyond the duties of the job. Outstanding students are nominated by professional staff members each month. Nominators advocate for nominees to the full professional team and one student is selected to be Employee of the Month (EOTM). The EOTM is awarded a signature backpack, recognized with publicity on TV screens within the Rec Center and on the website, and treated to a lunch, at a location of their choosing, with the Rec Director and their champion. The EOTM is also in contention for the Juliette Moore Director scholarship granted at the end of the academic year.
MEMBER SUPPORT. Do you know a student employee who deserves to be recognized? Complete a Letter of Support form (coming soon) which can be sent to the Campus Rec Director for consideration.
The Student Employee of the Month program is sponsored by KIND Snacks.
