Virginia Tech will be holding its 11th annual Big Event on Saturday March 31st. The Big Event is a student-run community service effort that has grown into the 2nd largest event of its kind in the nation. Every spring, thousands of students, faculty and staff come together to complete hundreds of community service projects throughout Blacksburg, Christiansburg and the New River Valley.

Starting in 2002, The Big Event at Virginia Tech has grown exponentially. Rooted in Virginia Tech's motto Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), The Big Event has provided an opportunity for the entire Virginia Tech community to join together and thank the surrounding communities of Virginia Tech. Last year, The Big Event 2011 saw 6,731 volunteers complete over 950 projects.
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, students and community members come together for a truly unparalleled experience.
The Big Event Opening Ceremonies will begin at 10:00 AM on the Drillfield at Virginia Tech.
