The Big Event will take place on Saturday, April 8, 2017. UNL students, faculty and staff are encouraged to volunteer with a group or as an individual. The volunteer registration form is now available on The Big Event website. Volunteer registration closes on Friday, March 17, 2017 (the Friday before spring break) at midnight.

The BIG Event team is excited to announce that over 3,000 UNL students volunteered for The BIG Event last year on April 9, 2016. Come join our Big Red family as we look to serve our community again this year! It is going to be the BIGGEST event yet!

The mission of The Big Event is simply saying "Thank You!" to the residents of the Lincoln community. This initiative is meant to uphold the University's core value of service. The ASUN Student Government is passionate about keeping and improving the relationship between our University and the Lincoln community. This event gives students the opportunity to show their appreciation to the community they call home while they are at college.

On the day of the event, students will arrive at the City Campus Recreation Center at 8 AM for a pancake breakfast provided by the TBE Exec Team. Following breakfast, volunteers will be released to their job sites to serve from 9 AM to 1 PM. After volunteering, volunteers are invited back to the Rec Center for a FREE lunch provided by the 2017 Big Event Sponsors.

The Big Event Exec Team has been working hard to make this year the BIGGEST and best year yet! They hope to recruit over 3,000 students and staff to serve over 300 private residents and community organizations in Lincoln.
