UGA Student Employee of the Year

The University of Georgia Student Employee of the Year competition is co-sponsored by

The University of Georgia Career Center      AND      The University of Georgia Division of Student Affairs


Each spring, the National Student Employment Association coordinates a selection process and chooses the National Student Employee of the Year to recognize the outstanding contributions and achievements of students. Working students and their employers provide immeasurable contributions to their institutions and to their community. This week was established to honor the students working on campus and their respective employers.

In coordination with the National Student Employment Association, the UGA Career Center and the Division of Student Affairs invite you to express your appreciation for your student employees by nominating a student for The University of Georgia's "Student Employee of the Year."
