The Big Event


Mission

Through service-oriented activities, The Big Event promotes campus and community unity as students come together for one day to express their gratitude for the support from the surrounding community. The Big event offers students the opportunity to gain valuable community service hours, while submerged in a healthy safe environment. This initiative allows student to serve and give back to the surround Clarksville community.

Purpose

The Big Event is different from other service projects because it is not based on socioeconomic need. The Big Event is an outlet for an entire student body and campus to express their gratitude to residents who support them during their college career.  Local residents attend athletic events, put up with traffic and everything else that comes with living alongside college students.  Whether it is painting houses, raking yards, or working a carnival, the type of job is not important.  The Big Event is not about the type of job or the number or jobs completed or the number of students that participate.  Rather, it is the interaction with the residents and the resulting unity in the community that makes The Big Event so BIG! 

Goal

Ultimately, we hope to establish a single day where students at campuses across the world come together for One big day, One big thanks, One Big Event.  Though we may not be working side by side, the spirit of selfless service will be apparent across the globe
