University Day 2015 is set for Thursday, May 21st
About University Day
University Day is a campus-wide beautification event that takes place each spring. Hundreds of students, staff and faculty gather together to plant flowers, spread bark dust, and enjoy live entertainment provided by campus groups. We also invite community members to join us! The tradition dates back to 1905 as part of Junior Weekend, when projects included things such as laying the walk to Deady, followed by a "feast" given by the University women. It has always been a spirited event to prepare the University grounds for commencement ceremonies, and even though it has greatly evolved since 1905, our roots still lie in campus spirit and community service.
Committee applications are now closed for the 2015 year but look back soon to be involved in next year's planning!
In honor of University Day the planning committee chooses to contribute something to the campus each year. Examples of past projects include new bike racks, updated benches, renewed courtyards, planted trees, new light posts, a beautiful sidewalk mosaic, and many more.
