Campus Cleanup

aboriginal smudging ceremony

Each April, UOIT and Durham College (DC) hold a Campus Cleanup event at the north Oshawa location in celebration of Earth Day, and to help spread awareness about the environment. This year's Campus Cleanup took place on April 22. Faculty, staff and students were assigned specific areas of the north Oshawa campus location to clean.

The event also included a smudging ceremony! This involved medicine plants being burned to make a smudge or cleansing smoke to erode any negative energy, feelings or emotions.
