As part of a team of 24, Testa takes care of Pennís grounds and buildings by removing trash, cleaning out drains, sweeping up leaves, disposing of snow—anything that keeps the campus clean and beautiful.
Why he likes being on the early shift: “It lets me get a jump on things, especially if students have been partying the night before.”
How much ground he covers on foot: “Maybe two miles a day.”
