Grounds Department

The SJU Grounds Department consists of the Grounds Director (Tony Webber) and four full time groundskeepers (Chris Pflueger, Gary Pflueger, Aiden Shoberg, and Dawson Torborg).  Aided by an energetic and dedicated crew of student employees, the grounds department maintains 118 acres of lawns and playing fields; 16 ¾ acres of parking lots; 6 ½ miles of sidewalks; 7 miles of roadways; and, in the winter time, hand shovels nearly an acre of stairs, ramps, and loading docks.

The grounds crew takes justifiable pride in the appearance of the campus.  Association with the Abbey's logging operation allows grounds personnel to be assigned to logging if snow removal is not required in the winter time and vise versa - logging personnel can be brought over to assist in a snow emergency.
