The most important part of the BIG Event is the volunteers! Without them, there wouldn’t be anyone to do work on the big day. Why should you be a volunteer? 

Community Involvement

Being a member of the University of North Dakota means that we are members of the Greater Grand Forks community. The BIG Event is our way of saying ‘Thanks’.

Service Hours

Need service hours for a scholarship or your major? Being a part of the BIG Event typically gives 4 or more service hours, all in one day!

Work With Your Friends

Want to work with your roommate? Or your dorm floor, sorority, fraternity, or student organization? Sign up together and we’ll send you to the job sites together! But make sure you have a group leader!

Free Stuff


Every volunteer gets a FREE T-shirt (mint green & black this year) as well as breakfast and other goodies such as sunglasses, water bottles, etc.
