This is big …. REALLY big!

SFA’s The Big Event brings student volunteers together for one BIG day of service to express our gratitude for the support of the Nacogdoches community. Small teams of students fan out across Nacogdoches County to complete projects for local residents and tell them “thank you.” Projects include painting, yardwork, cleaning, trash collecting, window washing, and more.

Local residents are encouraged to request a service project for The Big Event each year. The BIG Event is for everyone—projects are not accepted based on need or socioeconomic status. Absolutely anyone in Nacogdoches County can apply for a project to be completed by our student volunteers!

Take on a leadership role

We're always looking for student staff members who share a passion for service and want to take on greater responsibility in planning The BIG Event. If you are interested in becoming a staff member, contact the Office of Student Engagement Programs at (936) 468-3703 or .
