The Big Event at Virginia Tech is a student-run community service effort that has grown into the second largest event of its kind in the nation. Every spring, thousands of students, faculty, and staff come together to complete nearly one thousand community service projects throughout Blacksburg, Christiansburg and the New River Valley. We’ve started our own tradition here in Charlotte to participate in local community service projects and extend the reach of our Ut Prosim! This year we’ll have two projects on Saturday, April 7th in conjunction with Blacksburg’s event!
