FHSU’s Annual Big Event is April 24

Community groups interested in partnering with Fort Hays State University students to accomplish service projects are encouraged to sign up for the Student Government Association’s 10th Annual Big Event, which is scheduled for Saturday, April 24.

“The Big Event 2021 is all about ‘serving smiles’ in a safe way. The purpose of the Big Event is to give our students the opportunity to say thank you to the community that supports them throughout the year in a ‘big’ way,” according to a news release.

Students this year will be working in four 2-hour-long shifts throughout the day. SGA is also allowing community groups to provide service projects that can be done from a distance.  

“The Big Event is an opportunity for our students and community to witness the unique relationship that they have with one another, and this year they are even more excited to bring joy and happiness during these hard times,” the news release said.

Other on-campus sponsors are the FHSU University Foundation and the Office of Student Engagement. Community groups may register at sga.crd@fhsu.edu or call (785) 628-5311.
