UAlbany Students and Neighbors Participate in Pine Hills Clean-Up
ALBANY -- On Sunday, University at Albany students joined neighbors in the Pine Hills section of Albany for their annual spring clean-up.
"It is amazing how this cleanup has grown into a time-honored tradition," said Kimberly Smith, director of Community Engagement and Outreach of the UAlbany Student Association. "It's extremely rewarding to see students come out and clean up the area so many of us know and love."
The event, sponsored by the UAlbany Student Association and the Pine Hills Neighborhood Association, illustrates the cooperation between residents and the many students who live in the popular neighborhood.
"It is a wonderful opportunity for UAlbany students to work side-by-side with their neighbors to improve the quality of life in the local community," said Thomas Gebhardt, director of Personal Safety & Off-Campus Affairs at the University Police Department, and chairperson of the Committee on University & Community Relations.
