Clean sweeps are always open to anyone who would like to help us keep our Buffalo State campus clean.

Those who wish to participate: We will be meeting outside of the Weigel Wellness Center 3pm to distribute supplies, review the program, give quick tips to educate others on the purpose and history of the clean sweep and set up teams for multiple locations.
