This year’s Big Event is on April 11, 2015. With the anticipation that the students of Virginia Tech may be able to say “Thank You” to as many community residents as possible, we encourage you to request a job here: https://registration.vtbigevent.org/jobrequest.

Projects are completed regardless of need or socioeconomic status; instead, it is The Big Event’s goal to simply say, “Thank you.” Seeded in our university’s motto of Ut Prosim (That I may serve) students and community members come together for a truly unparalleled experience.

Last year, The Big Event completed 878 projects with the help of 7,806 volunteers. We hope to continue the tradition of setting our goals high, and are aiming to complete 1,000 project in Blacksburg, Christiansburg, and New River Valley on April 11.

Share your great experiences with The Big Event by telling your neighbors and friends about this opportunity so that we can make April 11, 2015 the most impactful “One Big Day. One Big Thanks.” to date. If you have any questions about the sign-up process, please contact bigevent@vt.edu.
