Beautiful Campus Grounds the Work of Dedicated Staff

Grounds Crew Group 0072 (1).jpg
The beautiful campus grounds can be attributed to the hard working facilities and grounds crew at the University of Minnesota Crookston.

At the campus entrance gardens alone, members of the staff planted 5,676 flowers and plants this spring. Along with maintaining the plantings at the entrance, the staff has been busy with the many other campus gardens and improvements around UTOC, Selvig Hall, Owen Hall, the Early childhood Education Center, Kiehle Building, Skyberg Hall, and in the Kiser Building. 

Thank you to these outstanding members of the staff for their dedication and hard work and for making and keeping the U of M Crookston campus beautiful!
