Bash for Trash

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- A few UNI sophomores organized a bit of spring cleaning today.

Despite the rainy weather, 50 students and community members picked up trash in the neighborhood around UNI.

The pick up was part of a UNI honor program called Presidential Scholars.

Students called the event "Bash for Trash".

"So we feel that since our mom's not here in college to clean up for us, why not take some responsibility, take some action, and clean up the area and get the community members involved as well," UNI Student Organizer Eva Andersen said.

This was only half of the UNI presidential scholars.

The other half held a 2K run for flood relief a few weeks ago.

Both of these projects were meant to demonstrate service learning.
