Simply Serving.

Big Event is OU’s largest day of community service.  Over 5,000 OU students, faculty and staff volunteer for this day of service every spring.  I have served on the Executive Committee for The Big Event for three years and am in love with it! Big Event is OU’s way of saying “thank-you” to the Norman-Oklahoma City area for the support that the area continues to show our university.  There are so many things that you can get involved with at OU, such as Campus Activities Council, University of Oklahoma Student Association (UOSA), Greek Life, or many other organizations… but  those of you who love community service will love the Big Event.

Every year, the Big Event is getting more community service locations and more volunteers. Students can do anything from picking up trash to working on home improvements for senior citizens.  I personally like working on the executive side of the committee in order to get everything ready for the big day; however if that doesn’t interest you, you can just volunteer the day of!
