National Student Employment Week

Pepperdine University 2019-2020 Celebration

2020 National Student Employment Week


"Student Employment Week was a blast! Receiving little treats everyday and getting surprised by candygrams from my supervisors made me feel so appreciated!"

-Mia Shinseki


Each year colleges and universities across the country recognize the importance of the student work experience during National Student Employment Week (NSEW). Student employment offers students career-enhancing opportunities, the ability to develop skills relevant in any career, and better preparation for the job market upon graduation. Student employees perform invaluable services with enthusiasm, dedication, and initiative on campus and throughout the community. Indeed, most schools and surrounding businesses depend on the contributions of this reliable workforce for the efficient operation of the campus and community. Each year Pepperdine University celebrates National Student Employment Week during the second full week of April. National Student Employment Week enables us to recognize and thank Pepperdine students for the contributions they make as employees to the University and the Malibu community. 

Last year, over 725 students participated in National Student Employment Week. This year's National Student Employment Week will surround the theme of the 2020 Olympics! From trail mix to Diddy Riese to freshly made Churros and coffee & donuts, students will not only be thanked profusely for their work but will also be given snacks that they can take and enjoy during classes or their workday. This is a wonderful time to celebrate you as student employees and a small way to say thank you for all that you do. The Student Employment Office will be celebrating student employees with free treats all week long and chances to win awesome prizes from our local Malibu Community and surrounding areas.

To further honor our student employees, supervisors are encouraged to nominate their deserving student employee as the Student Employee of the Year.

How To Participate 

To participate in Student Employment Week, you will need to bring your Student ID which will be scanned at each event. The more you participate, the more chances you have to win raffle prizes. If you cannot make the main events, stop by TCC 210 during the week of April 13-17, 2020 to receive a treat and scan in for the raffle. More information will be emailed to current Pepperdine Student Employees prior to April 2020. Must be a current Pepperdine Student Employee to participate.
