TESTIMONIALS “I love working for the SCCA because once I step into the office I feel at home. I’m surrounded by other students and professional staff who are dedicated to enhancing the Rowan experience through facilities, common spaces, and awesome events. I joined SUP and the SCCA to make friends, build my resume, and to have fun! You should join the SCCA for the amazing opportunities!” – Camryn Hadley Student University Programmers

"Working at the SCCA has been the greatest part of my Rowan experience. It gave me a community and people who I know will be there for me, along with friends that I hope to keep long after I graduate. I got involved simply to get a bit of extra money, but instead I got experiences, development, and opportunities I never thought I was capable of being able to do." – Bashira Khan The Game Room

"After being an SCCA staff member, the experiences and knowledge I have gathered is something unimaginable. The SCCA has offered me so much more than just a job. It has helped me with connectivity, relentless support, and motivation. It is truly an awesome opportunity for me as a student to work and learn at the same time with the SCCA." – Sarwatejas Rana Rowan After Hours “Working in this department has allowed me to grow in ways that I would not have expected. When they say that this is more than just a job, it’s not an understatement. Working at the Information Desk has exposed me to many experiences, leadership development, and allowed for personal growth that has completely changed my college career. It is the cherry on top of my college experience and I would not trade it for anything.” - Sha-faye Scott Building Manager

93.8% of our student employees who responded to the 2018–2019 2:1 Evaluations were able to recall the important phrase “safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment” from the SCCA’s mission statement.
