The Big Event is a student-based, community service day designed to say thank you to the community of Chadron. Starting at Texas A&M University in 1982, The Big Event now occurs at 72 campuses across the nation.
April 20, 2013 marked the beginning of this tradition at Chadron State college. Over 400 CSC student, faculty, and staff volunteers helped at 15 job sites in Chadron and surrounding areas. Volunteers interacted with residents at retirement communities, beautified city parks, painted in several buildings, and much more.
The Big Event is returning to CSC in Spring 2015!
