as part of the Ole Miss Big Event on Saturday.
This is the university’s fifth year to have a day dedicated to community service. The Big Event committee organized the various service projects that ranged from helping Oxford residents with their yards and working in the community garden to working with the Oxford Humane Society.
One Big Week was held in the Student Union Plaza this past school week and the Big Event Committee took the opportunity to sign up new students and spread information about the day through item give aways and a photo booth with the big Event logo plastered on the background.
A total of 1,700 students participated in 213 projects as part of the Big Event last year. This years Big Event will be held on March 28th, 2014.
