Student Employment

The department of student activities offers a wide variety of employment opportunities for students.

Our student employees are vital to the daily operation of our department. Without competent people in these positions, we would not be able to offer all our great programs and services to the campus community.

All new hires to Radford University will be subject to E-Verify, as of June 1, 2011.  E-Verify is administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, USCIS - Verification Division and the Social Security Administration and allows participating employers to electronically verify employment eligibility.
