One big day. One big thanks. One big event.

One big day. One big thanks. One big event.

Through service-oriented activities, The Big Event promotes campus and community unity as students come together for one day to express their gratitude for the support from the surrounding community. 

If you're going to be part of a community, you need to do your best to be inclusive and help others who can't help themselves.

Service is at the heart of citizen leadership, and The Big Event makes it easy to get involved in a spring service project right in Longwood’s own backyard. Each year hundreds of students volunteer for a variety of projects, spending the day giving back.

Service projects include:

  • yard work
  • cleaning siding
  • painting
  • light construction
  • trash pickup

And many more!
