Meet in the Student Recreation Center to check in and then get sent to your site.

For more information, visit the BIG event site page.

The BIG Event is the largest, one-day, student-run service project at The University of Toledo where students come together to say "Thank You" to the residents of Toledo, Bancroft Hills, and Secor Gardens for their continued support throughout the year. Each year, over 1,500 students provide over 7,000 total hours of service.

Students participate in this annual event to show their appreciation to the surrounding community by completing service projects such as volunteering throughout the community and in those neighborhoods that are closest to us.  Although the BIG Event has become the largest one-day, student-run service project in the nation, the message and our mission remains the same: to simply say, "Thank You."

Are you or your group interested in participating?

The first 1000 students who sign up receive a free Big Event shirt!
