▲ A student cleaning a glass door at Student Hall
On May 8, in celebration of Parents’ Day, students of the UOS extended a helping hand to some of the most alienated members of our university community ? the janitors. To express the gratitude to the janitors, students joined them in cleaning buildings. Students first gathered at Student Hall between 7 and 11 a.m., with about seven or eight students attending.

There were no benefits to be gained apart from personal satisfaction, but every participant worked hard alongside the janitors. It was an opportunity to understand how janitors work and to experience first-hand how hard their work is. One volunteer, Chi-hwa Seong (Dept. of Philosophy, ’10), said, “We should keep in mind that there are many workers laboring in shady places, cleaning up our messes. We should use school utilities in a clean and careful way, being more conscious of those who clean after us.”

The purpose of the event was laudable, but promotion was too late and narrow, a mere two days prior, leaving most students unaware. The early morning schedule may have discouraged students, as well. With more advance notice, more students would certainly have participated, making this a truly important event.
