Student Volunteerism

Since its inception, Texas Aggies have demonstrated a strong commitment to serving others within their ranks, as well as throughout their community, state, nation and world. The entire graduating classes of 1941 and 1942 enlisted to help their nation during World War II. Now each spring the Big Event, the largest single-day student-run service project in the nation, is a small reminder of the countless ways thousands of Aggie students give of themselves every day to help others.

Texas A&M University's Vision 2020 plan includes as a goal to "attain the highest rate of student participation in volunteer service activities in a national research university." That's not hard to do when the students have already been personally committed to this goal. The Virtual Volunteer Services Center can help you find a way to join in helping others.
