UPDATE: In response to the global outbreak of COVID-19, Virginia Tech has cancelled all student organization campus events. In an effort to keep the university community and residents of the New River Valley safe, The Big Event at Virginia Tech, originally scheduled for April 4, 2020 has been cancelled with no rescheduled date.

Virginia Tech presents their annual The Big Event on Saturday, April 4, 2020.

The Big Event at Virginia Tech is a student-run day of service that has grown into the second largest event of its kind in the nation. Every spring, thousands of students, faculty, and staff come together to complete nearly 1,200 community service projects throughout Blacksburg, Christiansburg and the New River Valley with the purpose of saying Thank You!

Projects are completed regardless of need or socioeconomic status instead, it is The Big Event’s goal to simply say, “Thank you.” Seeded in our university’s motto of Ut Prosim (That I may serve) students and community members come together for a truly unparalleled experience.

Examples of previous projects including washing windows, indoor cleaning, mulching, raking leaves, trimming trees and bushes and indoor or outdoor painting.
