Big Event gives back to Tahlequah community

Derek Dandridge

     Attention Northeastern State students, spring means it is time to do a little bit of cleaning. NSU presents the Big Event Saturday, March 26. The Big Event is an annual one-day community service, where the students, faculty and staff can give back to Tahlequah.
     In 1982 Joe Nussbaum, vice president of Student Government Association at Texas A&M University, started The Big Event for students and faculty to give back and say thank you to the town of College Station, Texas.
     “I love coming to the Big Event. This will be my second year being able to volunteer,” said Nick Tims, Owasso sophomore.
     NSU is currently in its fourth year of holding the event.
     “It just feels good being able to help out the community and clean up Tahlequah,” said Tims.
     So if any students are interested in getting involved with the Big Event, just make sure to pick up a form for volunteering at Student Affairs before March 1. For more information, e-mail or call 918.444.2526.
