Multicultural Students

The Big Event is a one-day service event bringing UNL students, faculty, and staff together to meet the needs of the larger Lincoln community to say "Thanks" for the continual support of UNL. The Big Event is held in late March or early April each year.

At the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, more than 2,500 students, faculty and staff are expected to volunteer and give thanks to Lincoln this spring as a part of The Big Event.
