It’s that time again…THE BIG EVENT 2010! Are you ready? Join students in the community service project on April 10th 2010. This year, the annual St. Edward’s service project is bigger than ever! The event, which is sponsored by the Student Government association, is expected to bring in around 200-250 students to help improve and cleanup neighboring areas. Each year, students participate in The BIG Event to give back to communities and neighborhoods surrounding St. Edward’s University. St. Edward’s was founded on a mission statement that reflects giving back to others and having a positive impact on one’s community.
“The BIG Event is so important to the university and the student body, as it is a reflection of our commitment to being good neighbors. People in the community look forward to The BIG Event each year, and truly appreciate our help,” says Krista Heiden, director of Service for Student Government Association and main coordinator for The BIG Event.
This year also marks the 125th year anniversary of St. Edward’s University. Part of the yearlong celebration includes the 125 Service Challenge, a campus wide goal of achieving 75,000 service hours by the end of the year. Students are encouraged to participate in various campus service projects to help reach this goal. This year, The BIG Event service hours will be counted into the 125 Service Challenge.
Sign up for The BIG Event today by registering online or by stopping by The BIG Event table in the Ragsdale lobby.
