The Associated Students of the University of New Mexico’s Community Experience hosts its annual Fall Frenzy on Friday, Oct. 18 in an effort to clean up campus right before The University of New Mexico’s Homecoming Week.

Fall Frenzy is ASUNM’s Community Experience’s largest event of the Fall Semester giving students, staff and faculty the opportunity to give back to their community by cleaning up different areas around campus. Previous years projects around campus have included raking leaves, planting flowers and trees, laying mulch and recycling materials.

For the 2019 Fall Frenzy event, participants will meet at the Cactus Garden—across from the Duck Pond by Zimmerman Library—at 9:15 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 18 for check-in. Following check-in, participants will be spread out across various designated sites around UNM to help clean-up campus. At 1 p.m., all participants report back to the Cactus Garden to enjoy a lunch and celebrate the amazing work they have done across campus.

“Fall Frenzy really is a special time here on campus where the UNM community comes together to celebrate this university and the beauty within it before Homecoming week,” says ASUNM Community Experience Executive Director Lynn Midani. “If you are wanting to meet new people, this is the perfect place to bond over UNM, food and service. I really encourage signing up and even stopping by in between class because it was at these events that I found a passion for service and involvement.”

Students, staff and faculty are able to sign up as individuals or through an organization. All participants receive free breakfast, free lunch and a Fall Frenzy T-shirt.
