Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The campus is impeccably maintained. All of the buildings, new and old, are kept in great condition. Classrooms, hallways, and other campus spaces are always clean and look like new. Maintenance and repairs are always completed promptly.

Outdoor spaces are beautifully landscaped. As soon as the weather starts to get warm in the spring, the grounds staff is out planting flowers, clipping shrubs, or cleaning fallen flower petals from the sidewalk. The campus is really beautiful, and the maintenance staff takes pride in keeping it that way.
