The Grounds and Automotive Department is responsible for campus-wide landscape maintenance; sports field maintenance; irrigation renovation, maintenance, and repair; solid waste management; hazardous weather condition response; and maintenance of campus vehicles.
The grounds department spent the month of August working on Commencement Hall to get ready for move in. All the plant material was picked out and planted by your grounds crew. We also did a rework of the old landscape at Wyatt’s patio and major tree work on Lawrence St. New sprinklers were added on the baseball field with Baker stadium to be completed by mid-September. The garage rebuilt transmissions, starters, and several other large projects to keep the fleet working and added several new utility carts.
The Grounds and Automotive Department is constantly looking to improve campus sustainability as it relates to landscaping, irrigation, and campus-owned vehicles.
