The UNL Big Event is back after a
two year absence!
Since its introduction in 2006, The
Big Event at University of Nebraska
- Lincoln has become the largest,
one-day, student run service project
in the state of Nebraska. Each spring
3,000 UNL students will enter the
community to serve the people that
allow them to call Lincoln home. Could
you use some help for that project
that you are just not able to do on
your own, maybe spring yard clean-up?

to request volunteers, the Big Event
coordinators will assign students
to come to your home and help with
your job. Please note, students are
restricted from using power tools.
Examples of jobs they can do include
painting (exterior or interior), plant
trees or flowers, trash pick-up, 1st
story window cleaning and interior
