Time to Volunteer for Aggie Law Big Event

February 21, 2017

Texas A&M University School of Law students, faculty and staff can now sign up for Aggie Law’s fourth annual Big Event on Mar. 4. This service project is an opportunity for Texas A&M Law to say "Thank You" and give back to the community.

The Big Event is organized and run by students.big-event-2016-sba-nature-center (1)

Shawna Smith, Program Coordinator for Student Affairs, said more than 100 students, staff and faculty have already signed up. But it’s open to more.

“It is a family friendly event, and we encourage everyone to bring their families,” she said.

The volunteers will serve at several sites around Fort Worth—Morningside Children's Partnership, Fort Worth Botanic Garden and the Salvation Army to name a few.

The 2016 Big Event was Smith’s first, and she said she’s excited for another year.

“Big Event provides our law school community an opportunity to engage and connect with the Fort Worth community,” she said.

Smith added that the Big Event is an opportunity to live out the Aggie core value, Selfless Service, and to enjoy fellowship outside of the classroom. It’s also fun!
