Myer Schine Student Center, where a free breakfast will be provided. Volunteers will be given free t-shirts and transportation to the various sites at which they will be working.

This year marks the fifth annual Big Event and will include 27 separate service projects at Syracuse nonprofits. Twenty first-year students, called OrangeSeeds, have been organizing the day’s activities since late January. OrangeSeeds is a leadership empowerment program that cultivates first-year students’ community values and leadership skills. Their training culminates with the planning of The Big Event.
