Clean-Up Day

Clean-up Day

Clean-Up Day was a long-held tradition at Pacific University. One day a year in late fall, students and staff would gather at Marsh Hall before repairing and beautifying the campus. Students would often dress as hobos, farmers or cross-dress. Greta McIntyre Sheeley's photograph album documents the Clean-Up day at Pacific University in 1917.
