San Francisco State garnered a national 2006 Green Star Award for best maintained grounds of an urban university. Awarded by the Professional Grounds Management Society (PGMS), an organization of park, playing field and campus grounds managers, the award recognizes aesthetic and technical skill. Director of Campus Grounds Phil Evans accepted the award on behalf of SF State at the annual PGMS meeting held Nov. 4 in Columbus, Ohio.

“The campus grounds are the first and last impression of the University for all visitors,” Evans said. “We strive to maintain the quality of a personal garden, giving each visitor a sense of ownership.”
