The BIG Event

About Us

The BIG Event is a one-day, student-led service project sponsored by Auburn University’s Office of Student Involvement. Since its beginning in 2003, the program has served as an opportunity for Auburn University students to give back to the Auburn and Opelika communities by performing basic community service tasks for households, businesses, churches, and organizations as a way of saying thank you for making Auburn a great community to live in. Each year, we have around 1,000 students go out into the community and serve through The BIG Event. We are so thankful to all of our wonderful volunteers that truly make Auburn one big family! We believe in work, yard work!
