The Big Event

The Big Event started at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX, in 1982. Since its inception, The Big Event has expanded to other universities across the country. Texas A&M University - Texarkana hosted their first annual version of The Big Event in April 2017, and added the tag line - Eagle Pride City Wide (EPCW). The inaugural event boasted over 200 volunteers that clocked nearly 1,000 service hours. This year's Big Event is scheduled for April 9, 2022.

The Big Event is one big day, one big event, and one big thanks to our community, Texarkana USA. This is simply our way of giving back to the community that supports our University. Our campus community of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and families unite to extend a helping hand for one day. We rake yards, clean streets, rebuild parks, visit nursing homes, walk dogs, read to children, and much more. 

The mission of The Big Event: “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.”
