Campus Beautification Day 2017 | April 18

This year we will be celebrating our 24th Campus Beautification Day (CBD) on April 18th (Rain date: April 19th). You can register for CBD at the flagpole area opposite MGC entrance on the Quad starting at 8:00 a.m. on the day of the event. CBD is a university tradition which incorporates campus beautification, sustainability goals, and strengthening the AU community through bringing together staff, faculty, students, and neighbors.

Activities include planting trees, installing new beds, and landscaping. Be sure to bring your reusable water bottle and wear comfortable clothing and closed toe shoes. T-shirts and gloves will be provided. The gardening activities wrap up at 11:45 a.m. at the CBD BBQ in the amphitheater. Fill out a raffle ticket at registration to be qualified to be entered to win a raffle prize at the BBQ! Simply fill out a raffle ticket at the registration desk and be present to win at the giveaway during the BBQ.

Join us Outside

You can register on the day of the event to participate in activities across campus. Registration tables will be on the quad by the flag pole and Brandywine. We also encourage volunteers to tweet throughout the day and connect with your fellow AU peers #BeautifyAU. Whatever the activity, please dress for the outdoors, bring your own garden gloves if you have them, and be sure to remember a reusable water bottle.
