Service Events

The Big Event

Get ready for The Big Event, the biggest student-run, one-day service project in the nation!

The Big Event is an incredible way for LU students to come together for one day to say "Thank You!" to Southeast Texas through community service. Our Lamar University event is modeled after The Big Event created by Texas A&M in 1982.

Come to The Big Event and...

  • Show your Cardinal Pride.
  • Have a fun and fulfilling volunteer experience.
  • Earn service hours for your organization.


Big Event 2024 will take place on Saturday, March 23rd!
