The Grounds team received the award for keeping our campus beautiful. Some of the responsibilities of the crew are: maintaining all outdoor areas, trash pickup, recycling, snow removal, maintenance of University-owned vehicles, and set ups for special events. The crew has divided the campus into zones which allows them to customize areas that normally would have been a small part of a massive project. The quality of their work, is witnessed by the entire community and the thousands of visitors to our campus each year.
