More than 1,000 University of Louisiana at Lafayette students and faculty members have already signed up for The Big Event.

Which event, you ask?

“It’s one big community service project where students and faculty volunteer to give back to our community and say thank you,” explained The Big Event’s executive director Lindsay Lejeune. It’s a student initiative, and it’s only UL faculty and students that will be volunteering that day.”

Volunteers involved with the inaugural event will be beautifying schools, churches and local businesses on Saturday, Oct. 19, by painting walls, planting trees and even working with the Lafayette Consolidated Government to mark drainage routes.

The Big Event is a partnership between UL Lafayette and United Way of Acadiana that’s modeled after the program started at Texas A&M in 1982 that’s since “been sweeping universities across the country,” Lejeune said.

Those interested in volunteering or becoming a site can visit The Big Event’s website.
