Green River College Green Day!

Was there any better way to celebrate Green River College and St. Patrick’s Day, then by going green for Green River? Of course not! Join the Human Resources team as we helped spread joy, cheer, and…chocolate. Go GRC Green Day 2015!

HR Green Team

The official HR Green Team getting ready to surprise campus!

It’s not too late (for next year that is)! If you haven’t already purchased your official green gear, head on over to the Paper Tree Bookstore and snag anything with the Green River logo on it! Then wear it on GRC Green Day 2016 (aka St. Patrick’s Day) and get ready to strike a pose with the HR leprechauns.

Wearing Green

Yes, this totally counts even though green is part of her uniform.

Wearing Green

We flagged down Theresa from across the courtyard when we spotted her in green!

Walking around campus, searching for anyone wearing green, we quickly ran into friendly faces of Green River employees. It really was nice seeing folks in their environment and getting out of our own offices for a quick break.

We even found folks who wanted to try on our beards!

The excitement of seeing HR…or free chocolate, can barely be contained!

Pinching for Luck

As it turns out, it really is good luck to pinch a leprechaun…although not a recommended practice by HR.

During our little adventure we encountered many employees across campus. Some instantly wanted to be a part of the silliness, some were willing to trade a chocolate for a quick photo, and some only agreed if they could actually pinch the HR leprechaun.

The greenest department on campus!

But wait…of course, there’s more!


Holiday Candy Bars!

What better way to celebrate the holiday season than with…more chocolate? Join the HR adventure as we spread joy and cheer around campus this holiday season.


We started by brainstorming creative ways in which we could engage remaining faculty, staff, and students. Did you know that renting real reindeer costs a fortune? Out of our own pockets we designed and purchased boxes of candy bars as an alternative. Chocolate always makes people smile, right?


Of course, dressing the part didn’t hurt either. HR staff got into the spirit by sporting Santa and reindeer hats.



The result was smiling faces across campus. We surprised a few folks, cracked up others, and found friendly faces wherever we went.



Thanks to all the faculty, staff, and students who laughed along with us, posed for silly photos, and helped spread joy and cheer this holiday season.
