The BIG Event

What is The BIG Event?

Date: Saturday, April 14, 2018

Mission Statement: SFA's The BIG Event promotes unity between campus and community as students come together for one day to express their gratitude through service for the support from the Nacogdoches community. Students work in teams to complete projects across Nacogdoches County as a way to say "thank you!" to the community for their support of SFA students.

Throughout the years, the Nacogdoches community has shown endless support to the students of Stephen F. Austin State University. For this reason, The BIG Event strives to reciprocate that appreciation to all residents. Each year, SFA students spend one day performing various service projects all across Nacogdoches County.

The BIG Event is focused solely on saying "thanks." Therefore, projects for this event are not based on need or socioeconomic status - ANYONE can apply for a project to be completed by our students!
