A cleaner campus

Students give back by picking up around campus

It doesn’t take much to clutter campus, but some students are taking steps to keep Ferris looking nice.

Every Monday evening, Ferris’ American Marketing Association (AMA) holds their Adopt-a-Campus program, which aims to clean up the campus and keep it looking beautiful.

“Ferris gives so much to us, and it’s a good way to give back,” Ferris advertising junior Emily Hamner said. “It’s a great and easy opportunity to give back to the community.”

AMA Vice President of Community Service Kayla Jordan said the program runs year-round and provides an opportunity for students to keep the campus clean. The event is open to all students and those wanting to join can arrive 6 p.m. Mondays outside the Interdisciplinary
Resource Center (IRC).

“I volunteered because I needed community service for the AMA, but it’s also a great way to hang out with other AMA members,” Ferris
marketing senior Veronica Cousino said. “I really like [the program]. I’m really busy, but it feels like I can help out in some way.”

Students can check Ferris’ web calendar for any further details about Adopt-a-Campus. The AMA and its members are more than willing to volunteer for the program and are grateful for the opportunity to keep Ferris clean, according to Jordan.

“[We do] this because we love to volunteer and provide community service in any way possible,” Jordan said. “Not only to serve the community but in our own personal environment every day, where we live and where we learn.”

Many AMA members appreciate the program to help keep the areas students use every day clean.

“It’s a great way to get in your hours for community service,” Ferris marketing senior Zach Ineson said. “We walk on this campus
every single day, so it’s important that we keep it clean.”
