Hey there!

It’s been a crazy past few weeks (although the best weeks are always the craziest, right?) so I have been procrastinating on blogging!  To be honest- I was planning on writing a post about Spring Break in Florida! And it may happen later but this post definitely take precedence.

My junior year at the end of Spring Break my parents and I visited Virginia Tech for the first time to take a tour and see what it is all about! I had an amazing time because my tour guide was fabulous- at least three of the organizations he mentioned on my tour I ended up being apart once I started here in the fall.  If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have even known about the RLC- something that has made an unbelievably HUGE contribution to my college career so far!


I remember he mentioned something about a huge community service event called “The Big Event” that was happening the day after my tour.  When people asked about it he explained how much a difference this one day makes in the Blacksburg community.  He went on to explain that thousands of students go into the surrounding community to do whatever work families that have signed up need!  The whole point is VT giving a “BIG” thanks to whole community for being so supportive of us Hokies!


The motto of “Ut Prosim” (“That I May Serve”) at Virginia Tech is VERY strong, that giving back culture was the main factor that attracted me to the university! When I finally arrived in August I knew that one of my main priorities was somehow getting involved in TBE because it was part of why I fell in love with VT on my tour!

I ended up getting on The Big Event Committee back in the fall and have loved being involved so far…but I best part, the actual day that students go out into the community on April 11th, is what I am really looking forward to!

I have two motivations for writing this post! One is just to share how much I love that Virginia Tech is founded in a culture of giving back to the community.  The second reason is for VT students…

APRIL 5TH is the LAST day to sign up for The Big Event 2015. Our goal is about 8,000 and we are SO close!


I promise that you will not regret signing up to do GOOD in the Blacksburg community on April 11th! You also get a pretty awesome t-shirt.  Between the “doing good” and “t-shirt” I don’t see how you could say no.

So- jump on over to this site and sign up RIGHT NOW! http://vtbigevent.org

I hope everyone has a wonderful day full of (hopefully) great weather and lots of Hokies signing up for The Big Event 2015! 🙂


Much Love,

Hadley Carter {happy hc}
