Contributed by Barbara Barnes

The Ithaca College student employment office is preparing its eighth annual celebration of National Student Employment Week.

The National Student Employment Association (NSEA) has declared that the second complete week in April each year be set aside to recognize the value of student employees and student employment professionals.

The purpose of this week is threefold:

1) To enhance awareness of student employment and its important role in the higher education experience.

2) To recognize students who contribute to the campus and community through their work while attending college.

3) To thank the employers who hire students for part-time positions.

To celebrate the occasion at Ithaca College, the student employment office has designated Tuesday, April 12, 2005, as Student Employee Appreciation Day. Student employees and their supervisors are invited to the Klingenstein Lounge, Campus Center, between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. for refreshments, music and door prizes.
