The Big Event is a citywide service day led by University of Florida students. The day kicks off with an opening ceremony, followed by UF students performing three-to-four-hour service projects across Gainesville – all “For The Gator Good!”

There are four main goals of The Big Event:

  1. Build a better Gainesville through creating stronger bonds between University of Florida students and faculty with all parts of Gainesville.
  2. Revolutionize the term “community service” to represent giving back to not just one aspect of the community, but the entire community.
  3. Physically build a safer, more beautiful, and ultimately better community through various projects around Gainesville.
  4. Give students the opportunity to show their appreciation for the City of Gainesville and all the support it shows the University of Florida.
