We’re so excited for The BIG Event 2017!
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, an on-campus organization, 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.
