National Student Employment Week recognizes working students
UConn enjoys the many talents of its students in a variety of areas throughout the University. It is estimated that more than 5,000 students are directly involved in the University through part-time jobs while attending school..

Students work for a variety of reasons, such as skill development, enhancing career decisions, making new friends and helping develop time management skills. For many students, working while attending college is a financial necessity. For others, working is a voluntary choice to enhance their development. Whatever the reason, working while attending college demands initiative and self-discipline. Working students deserve recognition for their extra efforts, along with the employers who support them. "Achievement through self-help" is the theme of National Student Employment Week, April 6-10.

The staff of the Student Employment Office invite the University community to join in congratulating UConn's student employees and their employers for their contribution to our school, our community and our state.
