Campus Beautification Day

Volunteer with American University faculty, staff, and students to beautify our campus

Just Announced: Campus Beautification Day April 9th 2019

Join us in celebrating our 26th Campus Beautification Day (CBD) on April 9th, 2019

Every year CBD focuses on building community with staff, faculty, students, and neighbors, while making campus beautiful. CBD is a university tradition which incorporates campus beautification and sustainability goals through greening the campus. All you need for the event is close toed shoes and a reusable water bottle; an event t-shirt, and gardening equipment will be provided to you. The CBD always closes out the event with a BBQ in the amphitheater where participants will be entered to win a raffle prize!

CBD also encourages participants to bring your personal and office e-waste to be recycled. The Office of Facilities Management American University Zero Waste will be collecting e-waste next to the registration desks. E-waste will be recycled, and data will be wiped according to Department of Defense standards. Please remember, AU owned surplus e-waste must go through AUSurplus@american.edu and not through this drive.
