Excuse the Mess!

As we are migrating from our old conference website, there may be some broken links or empty pages throughout our website. The site should be up and fully functional in a matter of days!

Please direct any questions to the Outreach Executives at outreach@bigevent.tamu.edu. Have a great week!

Committee Apps Now Closed

On behalf of the directors and executive team, we would sincerely like to thank all who applied to be a part of this incredible organization. The passion for leadership, selfless service, and unity unique to everyone who applied is a testament to the student body and their desire to give back to their community.

All applicants will be contacted via e-mail on Monday (Sept. 14), and those who have been selected to interview will have the opportunity to sign up for a time slot this week. 

Be on the look out for staff assistant applications coming out in October, as we are looking forward to bringing on over 250 students with this same passion of leadership and service to our organization. More information on the staff assistant role can be found here: bigevent.tamu.edu/staff .

In the mean time, connect with us on social media to keep up-to-date with Big Event news and happenings! Links are at the footer of this page. If you have any questions regarding committee interviews or the staff assistant application, please email development@bigevent.tamu.edu .

Big Event Wins Governor's Award

Each year, the Governor and First Lady of Texas select 9 recipients for the Governor's Volunteer Awards. This year, The Big Event at Texas A&M has been awarded the Higher Education Community Impact Award, given to the "college or university that supports and encourages civic engagement and volunteering as a core value." As an organization that embodies A&M's core value of selfless service, the Big Event's mission is to "simply say thank you" to the residents of the Bryan/College Station community for their overwhelming support of the University and student body.

Check out the University's press release regarding the award here: http://today.tamu.edu 

As well as this page from the OneStar Foundation: http://onestarfoundation.org/2015-governors-volunteer-awards/

We are truly humbled by this recognition, and give our sincerest thanks to anyone and everyone that made this happen!

Thank you, 2015 sponsors!

Each year The Big Event is only possible due to the generous support of our sponsors! Without corporate and local business sponsorship The Big Event would not be able to be what it is today. Below is a graphic of our 2015 sponsors:









See you in 2016!

The Big Event is excited to announce that nearly 22,000 Aggies signed up for The Big Event on March 28, 2015. Come join a unified Aggie family on April 2, 2016 as we look to set another record for the largest one-day student-run service project in the world! 

Our mission is “simply saying thank you" to the residents of the Bryan/College Station community, regardless of his or her socioeconomic status. This act of “simply saying thank you,” is how we as Aggies live out our core value of Selfless Service.

Our gratitude and service is NOT based on the actions or socioeconomic status of the people we serve. Rather, it is simply a result of our desire as an Aggie Family to serve our community!
