(Neb.)-Momentum Builds For The Big Event At Chadron State

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 03/27/2013 08:50 AM

(CHADRON)-Momentum for “The Big Event” is building at Chadron State College. The new CSC tradition will take place April 20th. Hundreds of CSC students, faculty, and staff will team up to give back to the community for their continual support of CSC throughout the years, according to assistant professor of communication Shaunda French.
CSC volunteers will perform several different tasks around town, including planting trees, visiting nursing homes, clearing brush, painting, and participating in a food drive.
So far, the wrestling, football, volleyball, track, and men's basketball teams plan to participate in The Big Event. Student organizations that have committed to helping include the Social Work Club, Cheer Club, Ag Club, Student Alumni Counsel, International Club, Health Professions Club, NAFME, Blue Key, Cardinal Key, NOCS, Revive, Public Relations Club, Social Science Club, Psychology Club, Legal Studies Club, Residence Life Association, ROTC, Omega Phi Rho, Allies Club and FCS Club.
CSC junior Samuel Parker, an intern for The Big Event explains, “We want to make a lasting impact in our community, and it all starts with being a part of something that is bigger than ourselves.”
The Big Event was founded at Texas A&M University in 1982. Since then it has spread to over 75 additional colleges nationwide. As noted in Texas A&M University’s mission statement, The Big Event is designed as a way to give back to the community. “Through service-oriented activities, The Big Event promotes campus and community unity as students come together for one day to express their gratitude for the support from the surrounding community.”
For more information on how to become involved with The Big Event at CSC, contact Samuel Parker at samuel.parker@eagles.csc.edu or Shaunda French at 308-432-6302.
