LOCK HAVEN - April 25 marked the beginning of a new Lock Haven University tradition. All the Greek organizations on campus came together for an all-campus cleanup.
The groups met by the Jury Fountain at 4:45 p.m., donned disposable gloves and took plastic bags across the campus to their designated areas and picked up papers, butts and trash.
"The campus looks really good, for the most part, but when we started looking for trash and butts they were there," said John Murphy, vice president of IFC, a member of Alpha Sigma Phi and one of the coordinators of the event. "We were really pleased with the turnout from the student-Greek community and how quickly we cleaned up."
"The grounds crew and maintenance do a great job with our university we just wanted to show our support and put a united community service together with pride in our university," said Jennifer Laffan, senior Alpha Kappa Psi member and also a coordinator of the event.
More than 100 students participated in the event, which was deemed a huge success.
"What a day!" Student Life Coordin-ator Wendy Walsh said.
She added, "We are hoping this will be an annual happening at LHU."
