Campus community gets hands dirty at Milligan Campus Work Day

Dozens of students and faculty members gathered at Milligan College on Friday to spruce up the campus on Campus Work Day, an annual tradition at the college. 

Faculty members like education professor Tausha Clay, Admissions Recruiter Rebecca Banton, Instructional Technologist Kelly Griffith and even Milligan President Bill Greer took to the campus early in the morning to beat the rain and assist with landscaping, cleaning the creek and painting campus signs and benches. 

They said the event allows the campus community to put finishing touches on the campus before new and returning students begin their fall semester classes. The annual event also helps foster a sense of community by showing thanks and appreciation for the campus landscapers whom Greer said “work all the time, all year round” to keep the campus pristine. 

“There’s always some final things we like to do to make it shine for families moving in,” Greer said. “It’s also just a chance to get everybody out of their offices and just do something outside, and it does build community. That’s one of the things that’s unique about Milligan – that strong sense of community.” 

Milligan will begin its first day of classes on Aug. 28.
