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.

The Big Event 2017 Executive Team Application



What makes The Big Event so big? Over 6,000 OU students, faculty, and staff volunteers. Almost 160 jobsites in a 40-mile radius. A budget exceeding $40,000. Ladders, shovels, and paintbrushes to supply a small army. This is all in one BIG service filled day!

The Big Event is OU’s official day of community service and the largest student event on campus— and the largest community service event in the state of Oklahoma. As a member of The Big Event Executive Team, you will be responsible for the planning and execution of the 18th annual Big Event. This is one of the most respected groups of student leaders on our campus, and relative to the size of the event, one of the smallest, which means a great deal of work--- all contributing to a challenging and ultimately rewarding experience.
Are you up for the challenge?

This application is due Thursday, September 8th at 5 p.m.
