Student Job Opportunities

“I’d have to say my favorite thing about Campus Rec was the culture and learning environment that the administrative staff maintained… Having the opportunity to work and learn at Campus Rec significantly impacted my attitude and my ability to succeed overall. You, in particular, were always incredibly kind and patient. You, and the rest of the administrative staff, fully acknowledged the incredibly impactful role you play in helping all student employees learn and grow as individuals. So, thank you! 🙂 “
– C. K. – Graduating Senior, Class of 2020
