Posters were put up across our campus and pamphlets distributed to spread awareness about cleanliness, hygiene and sanitation. Awareness about the significance of cleanliness was also spread through multiple means including ' Nukkad Natak" performed by students of BGSBU, various competitions, quizzes and interactive sessions etc.
Students from each department initiated the drive by starting with cleaning their own departments and then pitching in to clean other areas of our university. The student/teachers volunteers not only cleaned the campus area, but also carried out a cleanliness drive by spreading awareness about hygieneity and sanitation among the villagers. Another drive was initiated in our univesity's hostel with all Wardens and students coming together to sweep the hostels clean.
