Make our campus beautiful!

cbd 1 Pull on your work boots and roll up your sleeves! It’s time to spruce up our campus and the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood. On Wednesday, June 11 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. all faculty and staff are invited to participate in the first-annual Campus Beautification Day.

Staff Senate members initiated the clean-up day to give staff members an opportunity to participate in service work while also tending to projects like “spring cleaning” and painting. The work day will be followed by the annual staff picnic in Murphy Park at 1 p.m. Campus Beautification Day is a joint project of the Augsburg Staff Senate and the Facilities Management department.
