Call to Register: OrangeSeeds Big Event and Community Service Day
As the University’s largest student-run day of community service, The Big Event is an annual opportunity for students to support local nonprofit organizations within the Syracuse community. Each service day is organized and hosted by the OrangeSeeds, a first-year and transfer student empowerment group. Interested students are asked to complete the registration form by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9.
“The Big Event is empowering for students and the Syracuse community alike,” says Natalie Pazmiño, program coordinator of the Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs. “This year we have confirmed 17 partnerships and counting. Examples include Vera House, the Rosamond Gifford Zoo, Rahma Edible Forest Garden, Habitat for Humanity and more. There truly is something for everyone.”
The Big Event will be hosted on Saturday, April 13, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., starting with registration and breakfast at Hendricks Chapel. T-shirts will be available for the first 100 volunteers to check-in.
