Join your fellow Hokies for our annual day of service! We’ll embody Ut Prosim while we help sort and pack food at Food Lifeline, a nonprofit food distribution center that provides nutritious food to hungry, low-income people. The Big Event at Virginia Tech is a student-run community service effort that has grown into the second largest event of its kind in the nation. Every spring, thousands of students, faculty, and staff come together to complete nearly one thousand community service projects throughout Blacksburg, Christiansburg and the New River Valley. Alumni chapters around the country participate with service projects in their local communities!
