"Our commitment to Carolina's ongoing environmental, social, and economic challenges is more relevant than ever. While we have come a long way in addressing campus sustainability, there is much more that we can do."
- President Harris Pastides, University of South Carolina Sustainability Report, 2015

The BIG Event
The BIG Event is an annual event that takes place on college campuses nationwide. Basically, it’s community service that is not “need based;” rather it is an opportunity to develop working relationships between the students and community members who live near the University. After looking into it, the Community Service and Wellness Team of Sustainable Carolina, in collaboration with Student Government, decided it would be a good fit for our campus. Students can help with various tasks like raking leaves, painting, moving furniture, general cleaning, etc. The University of South Carolina’s inaugural BIG Event will be held on
Saturday, April 21st from 9 AM-1 PM.
