Virginia Tech's The Big Event

Powered by Truist
RSS XML FeedBackground Active Feb 20, 2008 to Apr 5, 2008

The Big Event is Virginia Tech’s largest community service project.  It is one day where Virginia Tech students come together to say thanks to the surrounding communities in the New River Valley for being a gracious host to us for nine months out of the year and for their continuous support of the University.  On this day, more than 3,000 students will complete over 450 service projects ranging from painting to yard work to trash pickup for residents of the surrounding communities.  Through The Big Event, Student Government Association aims to strengthen the relationship between Virginia Tech and the communities we impact throughout the year.    

All residents of the New River Valley are welcome to participate in the event which will be held on April 5, 2008.  Jobs should last about 3 to 4 hours and cannot require power tools.  Jobs in the past have ranged from painting to yard work to trash pickup.
