Sign up to be a part of The BIG Event 2016!
The BIG Event is a day of service each year that gives Southwestern University students, faculty, staff, & alumni the opportunity to spend a day volunteering with local nonprofits and community partners. It is organized by Sustain and sponsored by local businesses.
The BIG Event aims to engage Southwestern students with the Georgetown community that surrounds and supports our university. The intent is three-fold:
- To raise awareness about a variety of social, political, and economic issues in Georgetown
- To strengthen partnerships
- To empower students to engage with their community
While The BIG Event is only a single day, we hope that it will support the development of a more sustained and active relationship between Georgetown and the SU campus.
