Student Employee Appreciation Day on the 10th

There are many reasons why we should be thankful for student employees. As Student Employee Day was April 10, there are many ways to say thanks to all the students that work on campus. Here at West Liberty University, we have multiple positions students can take to be employed on campus. Being employed on campus can be much easier for students who don’t live close to home and still want to have the opportunity to work. At WLU, we have multiple places to work like the WOW Cafe, the Marketplace, Mail Room, internships and many, many more! Student employees do a lot of things to make us students go through our days more smoothly.

Student Employees have to do tasks such as feed us, make sure we get our mail, entertain us and much more. The benefits of working on campus are really nice as students can work with their class schedules easily and be super close to work from their campus living. I think that working on campus is a wonderful idea. If I didn’t already have a job, I would definitely be working on campus. I have an internship here, and I absolutely adore it. It is convenient to work with professors and staff that you already know that can help when you run into problems.

Angelica Rogers is a student employee that works in Jazzman’s Cafe and said that she wanted to work on campus because it was more convenient. “My favorite thing about working on campus is the people I work with. Becky and Sandy are the nicest people you will meet!” Angelica says when I asked her about her experience here at West Liberty. “What I would tell someone that is looking to work on campus is that it is definitely worth the experience!” she adds. Another worker, Annalise Murphy, who is the editor-in-chief of The Trumpet, also says she loves working on campus. “My favorite thing about working for The Trumpet is meeting and interviewing new people,” Annalise says. Annalise’s advice to anyone wanting to join The Trumpet is, “Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone a bit. The Trumpet would love to have a variety of different people and majors involved.”

As applications are going out for Summer and Fall of 2021 jobs on campus, I think it would be a great experience for anyone! The campus is a wonderful place, and working here is so convenient for people who live in student houses, apartments and dorms. Make sure to thank your student employees and all they do for us! Student Employee Day is to recognize students who perform wonderful work while attending college.
