ALBANY, GA (WALB) – It's almost the end of the school year and many college students are getting ready for finals but one group of students is getting dirty for a good cause.

More than 100 students gathered in the courtyard between three Albany State University dormitories Friday morning as part of a week of festivities on the campus. The students planted flowers and picked up trash.

And after the hard work they enjoyed a cookout and music. While the students are making the campus look nicer now, they're also benefiting students who won't be on campus for years to come.

"It starts with the small things like taking care of our campus. But the small things we're doing today may help ASU last 10 to 20 more years," said William Wright of Albany State University.

School officials say that all of their efforts are designed to increase the amount of green space on the campus and to get ASU a LEED certification, meaning that the school is environmentally friendly.
