Aggie Yell Leaders Cardo Walthall and Bo Wilson held a yell practice just before stu dents dispersed to their assigned job sites. Big Event has changed from past years. The biggest change this year was the increase in the number of students who partici pated, McAlpine said. Big Event began in 1982 when six Aggies planned to clean a local cemetery. Big Event has always been a way for Aggies to thank the Bryan- College Station community each year, McAlpine said. “[Big Event] is a thank you to the entire community that sup ports A&M, not just lower-level income areas,” McAlpine said. Students and student organiza tions are recruited to work on all of the community projects planned for the day. A computer program randomly assigns students and organizations to service sites. “We will not turn anyone down unless [the service event] is an unsafe environment,” said Allison Qualls, assistant director of Big Event. McAlpine and Qualls said the entire community is grateful and thanks all the students who participated in Big Event. Big Event has evolved into the largest single-day, student- run service project in the coun try. At last count, almost 40 col leges and universities across the U.S. have created their own ver sion of Texas A&M's Big Event. Other schools, like Oklahoma State University, learned about the event through a student government confer ence held each year at A&M. Big Event is sponsored and [Big Event] is a thank you to the en tire community that supports A&M, not just lower-level in come areas. — Ashley McAlpine Big Event director organized by Texas A&M’s Student Government Association. The students are responsible for raising the nearly $40,000 needed for Big Event and also for gather ing tools and supplies needed for the various projects. Big Event is funded on a year-to-year basis through stu dent allocation fees as well as donations from the community, former students and Aggie Mom’s Clubs. Some goals that Big Event organizers want to fulfill are the establishment of an endowment fund, an increase in jobs and stu dent turnout on the day of Big Event and expansion to more universities across the country.
