More than 1,500 students gave back to the community by participating in the Big Event March 25.

Crews provided approximately 4,000 hours of service at 35 sites throughout Toledo.

The annual Big Event is the largest, one-day, student-run service project at the University when students come together to say “thank you” to the residents of Toledo, Bancroft Hills and Secor Gardens for their continual support throughout the years.

“The Big Event is a great way to let the Toledo community interact with our students and to see what a wonderful resource our students and UT are to the community,” said Dr. Page Armstrong, associate lecturer in the Jesup Scott Honors College and faculty adviser for the event.
