It’s difficult to establish what the students, faculty and staff relished most about the latest Spring Spruce Up: The camaraderie, the food or the fun.
One thing’s for sure: the Jacksonville University campus is looking dapper – thanks to 300-or-so Dolphins who rolled up their sleeves, donned color-coded bandanas based on their work assignment, and planted, raked, mulched, sodded and picked up trash from the campus entrance to the riverfront.
Some areas just off campus also were targeted during the annual event held Friday, Feb. 22.
“There so much to be learned and so much good to come out of this – the teamwork, the networking, the fun,” said Miami native Sonia Leggs, a senior business administration major. “I saw what was going on, asked about, and I’m glad did.”
From students to professors to JU President Tim Cost, there were plenty of participants to share the toils – and the fun. Everyone received Spring Spruce Up T-shirts, bandanas, lunch and an opportunity to win door prizes.
