Community Engagement

The Big Event

The Big Event is coming to SMU!

The Big Event is coming to our campus in full swing in March 2019.

The Big Event is the largest, one-day, student-run service project in the nation. The Big Event was established at Texas A&M University in 1982 and continues to impact communities 36 years later. Each Spring, tens of thousands of students nationwide gather to service their communities through acts of service. On this day, college students are able to unite as one to be a part of something bigger than themselves. Simply put, The Big Event serves as a way to give back to your local community and to ultimately say “Thank You”. 

Stay tuned for more information about this nationwide day of service. But for now, mark your calendars for:

 
  • January 18th - March 1st: The Big Event Registration Period

  • February 11th - 15th: The Big Event Awareness Week

  • March 30th, 2019: The Day of The Big Event
