OU will host The Big Event March 28, an annual event at over 60 universities in the nation. Awareness Week will take place February 16-20 to raise awareness about the event.
Awareness Week is scheduled at OU Feb. 16-20 to educate the campus about Big Event,the largest student-run community service effort in the nation, according to the event's official website.
Various activities will be provided throughout the week to promote the event scheduled for March 28. Applications for group and individual volunteers will be provided this week.
"I think that Awareness Week is a good idea because I feel like Big Event is such a helpful day," OU student Kaitlyn Dekalb said. "Big Event already has such a great turnout, and the more they prepare for it the more people will show up for it and the community will benefit."
Registration deadline is Feb. 20, and applications can be turned in at the Oklahoma Memorial Union.
