Students ready to help community for March 31 ‘BIG Event’

MTSU students are gearing up to step off campus and into the community to help neighbors on March 31 in the fourth annual “BIG Event” service project.

Sponsored by the University’s Student Government Association, the event is part of the largest one-day, student-run service project in the nation.

“Participants of all majors, classifications and ages will show their appreciation to the surrounding community by completing service projects such as yard work, trash pick-up, window washing, painting and many more projects for community members,” said Courtnei Secrest, philanthropic coordinator for the campus SGA.

“Last year we had more than 200 participants, and we want to make sure this year is bigger!”

Student volunteers will be registering at 9 a.m. Saturday in the Murphy Center parking lot. The service projects will be performed between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
