Maine Day: From Local to Global
April 29, 2020
In 1935 President Arthur Hauck inaugurated Maine Day, a day set aside for “spring clean-up” of the campus. The entire campus community — students, faculty, staff, and alumni — pitches in to spruce up the campus. Historically, Maine Day is set on Wednesday of the last week of classes of the Spring semester.
For the first time in 85 years, Maine Day looks different. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to celebrate Maine Day like in years past, but this does not mean we are not celebrating a UMaine tradition. In years past, Maine day has served the local communities of Orono and Old Town. In 2020, Maine Day is going global.
Due to students being spread across several continents, with stay-at-home orders and lockdowns in place, Student Life has developed Maine Day service projects that can be completed from home. Keeping with tradition, we want to recognize all those that serve during this day, with a fun surprise.
