I'm one! Clean Campus Crew

Hi, I'm Nicole Poag-Wilson, a sophomore entrepreneurship major from Culleoka, and I'm One! I'm a member of the Clean Campus Crew.

As part of the Tennessee's Best program The Clean Campus Crew students will walk selected areas on campus helping to pick up litter and removing signs that are posted on lampposts, trees and other areas not approved for signage. We were selected for the team when we responded to a request from the Financial Aid office asking students who had work-study scholarships if they wanted to be part of the Clean Campus Crew. A big reason I am doing this is because I care about our environment. I want to make people aware of how nice our campus is and how easily we students can help keep it that way. Simply by participating in this program, I hope to encourage other students to do their part to keep our campus clean and help protect our environment. Every little bit helps, so why not dispose of trash properly?

Our campus is pretty clean, but we can make it better with this new program. When others see us out there, hopefully they will think twice before dropping a plastic bottle on the lawn or leaving cigarette butts on the sidewalks. There are plenty of trash cans and recycling bins on campus, all it takes is walking a few extra steps.

I'd really like to get more people involved in this campus beautification program. The more people we get out here, the more everyone will be aware of the concerted effort being made to keep campus looking great. The more people are aware, the more likely they will be to do their part.

I hope to see you out there! Join our efforts to help keep MTSU's campus clean. You can be one, too—an honorary member of the Clean Campus Crew!
