The Big Event

Saturday, April 7, 2018

Spring is here and so is the Big Event held by the Community Government Association (CGA)!

The Big Event is BU's largest single-day community service event held by students. This event gives Huskies a chance to give back to the town they call home nine months out of the year. This is also a great chance for students gain community service hours and bond with their peers in a specific organization or as a university.

This year's Big Event will be held on Saturday, April 7. Registration forms must be filled out front and back with all participants' signatures returned to the Community Activities Office in KUB 428 by March 27. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact the Community Activities Office at 570-389-4462.


The Big Event

Huskies came together again this year at the Community Government Association’s annual Big Event! With more than 2,000 student volunteers tackling more than 225 job sites throughout the town of Bloomsburg. Making The Big Event, well B-I-G in more ways than one!

Among the locations served were The First Presbyterian Church, Children’s Museum, Kocher Park and more than 100 local residences. Student volunteers tackled a host of chores such as raking, gardening, mulching, removing debris, digging and various spring-cleaning duties.

Sponsored by the CGA, the single-day community service event gives students the opportunity to say “thank you" to Bloomsburg area residents and show appreciation for the community they live, learn and work in. CGA works hard each year to ensure that the LARGEST student-run community service project on campus continues to grow each year. They coordinate this one day event by combining campus, town and student officials and volunteers...focusing on aspects, such as: town recruitment, fundraising, transportation and student/organization/club recruitment.
