The sounds of Lake Mendota, the smell of the grill and a sea of colorful Terrace chairs is one of the most quintessential summer experiences in Madison. Now imagine being paid to be a part of the magic! We’re currently hiring students for summer jobs at Madison’s favorite hangout. 

Students are an integral part of the Wisconsin Union team. In fact, the Wisconsin Union is one of the largest student employers on campus! Without our amazing team of students, we wouldn’t be able to offer our array of artistic and musical experiences, outdoor activities, delicious dining, and other memorable events. And out of all our amazing job opportunities, one of the most iconic is working on the beloved Memorial Terrace.
