Student Employee of the Semester Award

The Student Employee of the Semester (SOS) Award recognizes the efforts of System Offices student employees each spring and each fall semester.

Each award winner receives a certificate signed by the Chancellor, an engraved pen set and a $250 check.

The award recipients will be announced in conjunction with the announcement of recipient of the Employee of the Quarter Award during the spring and fall semesters (typically in March and December). A System Offices executive will present the certificates and engraved pen sets.
