The Big Event at Virginia Tech is a student-run community service effort that has grown into the second largest event of its kind in the nation. Every spring, thousands of students, faculty, and staff come together to complete nearly one thousand community service projects throughout Blacksburg, Christiansburg and the New River Valley.

Thank you to everyone who made April 11th, 2015 the biggest Big Event in Virginia Tech's history.

8,050 volunteers completed 1,043 jobs.
