Throughout much of Springfield College's history, students worked on campus and helped build the campus and their community. Sidewalks were commonly constructed by students. This may have been because one of the long standing traditions on campus is that students should not walk on the grass of the main campus; therefore many sidewalks are needed.Today this tradition of students working to improve their community is shown in the school's Humanics in Action Day, where the staff and students at Springfield College go off and work within the community.
