The purpose of this quantitative study was to investigate the relationship between student employment in the college union and student success at public universities in the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The study focused on the success of student employees as it relates to satisfaction, persistence, student learning and personal development. The study also focused on the relationship between college union working conditions and student satisfaction. The subjects in this study were 166 student employees who work in the college union at public SEC institutions during the 2016-2017 academic year. A survey was used to collect demographic information and information on how student employees within the college union describe their success and satisfaction. The results of this study generally confirm that student employment in the college union yields student success through satisfaction, persistence, student learning and personal development. The results also confirm that there is a positive correlation between working conditions and satisfaction with the college experience.
