Students, Neighbors Adopt a Highway

Cleaning up the adopted stretch of Furrs Mill Road.

Seinfeld fans will no doubt remember when Kramer adopted a stretch of highway and caused chaos by repainting the lanes. It was his highway, after all. The W&L Campus-Community Coalition didn’t paint new stripes on Furrs Mill Road Sunday, but more than 50 members of the coalition spent several hours cleaning up the two miles of highway that the groups has adopted. In addition to beautifying the roadway, the avowed goal of the Campus-Community is to bring students and neighbors together to get to know each other better. The adopted highway is one element of the program that includes open forums where students and neighbors talk about common issues.

W&L Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Dawn Watkins talks about the effort in the video below:
