What is The Big Event?
Throughout the years, the community of Laramie has shown endless support to the students
of UW. The Big Event’s goal is to reciprocate that appreciation to residents.
Through service-oriented activities, The Big Event promotes campus and community unity
as University of Wyoming students come together for one day to express their gratitude
for the support from the surrounding community.
The Big Event is an event that strives to uphold the ideals of unity and service.
This one-day event is not based on socioeconomic need, but rather a way for the student
body to express their gratitude to the entire community which supports the University.
It is important to remember The Big Event is not about the number of jobs completed
or the number of students who participate each year. Instead, it is the interaction
between students, and residents and the unity that results throughout the community
that makes The Big Event such a unique project.
The Big Event is an opportunity for UW students to say thank you to residents of the
greater Laramie community for the support they provide to college students. Our goal
is to make this a BIG EVENT so we can say a BIG THANK YOU. We encourage all students
and faculty to participate in The Big Event. Students may sign up as individuals,
groups of friends or as organizations (RSOs, ASUW, Greek Life, etc.) Starting in 2023, volunteers can register in groups of up to 5 people. Group registration
closes October 8, 2023.
Are you looking for students to help you with a project around the house? Jobs requests
could include raking leaves, cleaning gutters, painting, yard work as well as a variety
of other tasks. Student crews will be available to volunteer from roughly 10 a.m.
- 1 p.m. on the morning of the event.
Job requests are currently closed. Check back next fall!
