Many look forward to the coziness of fall with the colorful fall foliage, apple picking, hayrides, pumpkin lattes and the cooler temperatures.
During this time of year when there is much to enjoy about the outdoors, The University of Toledo is inviting the UT community to assist in working toward a cleaner, greener campus.
A Fall Clean Up Day will be held Wednesday, Sept. 26, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. when students, student organizations, faculty and staff are asked to volunteer for an hour to pick up trash and cigarette butts around campus. All participants will receive trash bags and gloves, along with a free T-shirt for volunteering. Just stop by the tables set up near the steps in front of the Student Union.
Last year’s Fall Clean Up Day brought out 291 students from nearly 50 student organizations that removed 50 pounds of cigarette butts and trash from campus.
The 2012 event will coincide with the Ohio College Health Association’s “Just Ask” campaign that encourages faculty, staff and students to remind smokers to use designated smoking areas on campus.
Fall Clean Up Day is organized by the Division of Student Affairs, Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drug Prevention Program, Eta Sigma Gamma, and Students Against Destructive-Making.
