Student employees at Rollins provide valuable services that help the College meet its mission. We encourage supervisors and staff to recognize student workers for their outstanding work throughout their employment. 
Below are some resources and ideas for recognizing student employees for their hard work:
  • Give praise publicly. If a student did something great, share praise in staff meetings involving the student, via a department-wide email, or in other creative ways.
  • Make and frame a certificate of appreciation for your student and hang it in their work station.
  • Post a picture of your student at work, along with kind words of recognition, on your office Facebook page. 
  • Nominate your student employee for the annual Student Employee of the Year competition (nominations accepted each Spring).
  • Collect thank you notes and cards from members of the department and present them to your student employee.
