Welcome to the Big Event, the University of Oklahoma's official day of community service.  Mission Statement: The Big Event strives to unify campus and community through one big day of service and gratitude.

Community Through Service with The Big Event

On April 11th, 2015, nearly 6,000 volunteers from the University of Oklahoma went to over 150 different jobsites around the Norman and Oklahoma City metro. These energetic volunteers completed over 20,000 hours of community service on this day, making it the largest single-day community service effort in the state of Oklahoma. Thank you to everyone who made OU’s Big Event 2015 a success!
