Big Event

Save the Date! The 19th Annual Big Event is Saturday, March 27, 2021.

Big Event is a student-led service opportunity held every spring by the Big Event student organization. The mission of Big Event is simply One Big Day. One Big Thanks. One Big Event.

UCO students head out into the community to say thank you to residents through service. Students can clean up trash, do yard work, paint, garden and various other light labor activities inside or outside. Big Event averages between 600-800 students and 100 service sites each spring.

This means we need your help! So please consider being a worksite, volunteer or team leader this year. We look forward to seeing you in March!
