The SUNY Cortland Make a Difference Day campus cleanup tradition has been revived, just in time for Arbor Day on April 26. Students, staff and faculty will gather for the first time in about a decade to beautify campus as Commencement draws closer. Volunteers will register with Facilities Operations and Services, and receive T-shirts, coffee, donuts and personal satisfaction for their efforts.

Project sites will include the Stadium Complex, the Alumni House, and planters located around campus and the Student Life Center. Gloves and equipment will be provided for individuals and teams who sign up.

“I’m thrilled that this Arbor Day celebration is returning to campus,” SUNY Cortland President Erik J. Bitterbaum said. “The event provides a wonderful opportunity to spruce up campus as the semester winds down, but more importantly it reaffirms our campus commitment to sustainability and the well-being of our natural environment. Everyone has the ability to make a difference on Arbor Day, and this event is proof.”
