The Fort Hays State University Student Government Association is hosting the annual BIG Event on April 2. The event will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., with an after party for volunteers at 4:30.

The BIG Event is designed to help all community members of Hays. It is the studentís way of saying thanks for all the support received from the community towards education.

Last year, the BIG Event had nearly 200 participants and 26 different projects throughout Hays. The projects included painting, gardening, community clean-up, sorting clothes, etc. This year SGA hopes to reach more people and increase the amount of projects in the Hays community.

The Student Government Association wants the community to get involved as well.

Registering a project can be done online on the SGA website,
