Millersville University will take part in its first ever Big Event on March 24. The Big Event is the largest one-day, student-run day of service in the nation. The project started at Texas A&M University in 1982 by their Student Government Association and now takes place at multiple colleges and universities across the nation.
Millersville University’s Student Government Association (SGA) decided to take on this event to give back to the Millersville community outside of campus. The Millersville Lion’s Club, The HUB and The Campus Cupboard are just a few of the places that students will be going to do things like paint, clean and rake leaves throughout the day.
Olivia Stoner, vice president of Advocacy and Outreach for SGA, brought the idea to Millersville and hopes to one day have the The Big Event be as successful as it is at Texas A&M. “I’m looking forward to seeing the students of Millersville directly impacting their community.” she said. “The Millersville community has given so much to this University, and it will be amazing to see students returning the favor.”
The event will be kicking off at 9 a.m. in the Quad. Students can sign up as an individual or as a team. Students can also sign up the day of the event. Those who sign up before March 22 will receive breakfast and a t-shirt. If you have any questions about the event contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
