The Big Event will occur virtually on April 17, 2021. Students are encouraged to serve where they are by finding their own service site or to sign up for a volunteer opportunity organized by the Office of Civic Engagement & Social Responsibility.

Residential Service Sites

Due to Covid-19, The Big Event is focused on a “serve where you are” virtual model. Unfortunately, this means we will not be accepting any resident requests this year. We sincerely appreciate your understanding and look forward to continuing serve with our neighbors in the future.
