MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (August 4, 2017) —Each year, Milligan College faculty and office staff leave their desks to assist physical plant staff with some final campus beautification before students arrive the following week.

The college’s annual “Campus Work Day” took place this morning. Milligan students begin moving in on Aug. 12, with classes beginning Aug. 16.

“Whether we’re painting benches or mulching a flower bed, this annual tradition brings faculty and staff together as we prepare for students’ return to campus,” said Milligan President Dr. Bill Greer. “It also is our chance to thank Milligan’s housekeeping, landscaping and physical plant staff who work to make this campus as beautiful as possible every day.”

The work day kicked off with a continental breakfast at 8 a.m. in Milligan’s McCormick Dining Center located in Sutton Hall. After breakfast, employees divided into groups and completed a checklist of indoor and outdoor projects, including landscaping and cleaning, culminating with an employee lunch at noon.
