Nothing shows the Aggie tradition of service like the Big Event--the largest one-day student-run service project in the nation. Big Event began unceremoniously in 1982 with six Aggies volunteering to clean up a local cemetery. Since that time, an ever-increasing number of Aggies have volunteered their time in order to create, as they say, "one big day, one big thanks, and one Big Event." In 2015 more than 22,000 Texas A&M students, faculty and staff came together to say "thank you" to the residents of Bryan/College Station for supporting and hosting them while they attend Texas A&M. Spreading throughout the community, Aggie Volunteers worked on approximately 2,500 community service jobs.


Big Event has expanded to 110 other schools across the nation and, in 2014, it went international for the first time, with schools participating in Spain, Australia, Germany, Pakistan and Italy.
