The Big Event at SMU

What We’re All About

The Big Event at SMU started out in 2018 with just a few people coming together to do what they love. Little did they know that it would grow into the thriving Student Organization it is today. Our dedicated members enjoy meeting often for different events and activities. Passion and enthusiasm go hand-in-hand with everything we do.

Our door is always open to new volunteers, no matter their experience level. We are proud to bring together people from all over Dallas and beyond. Come join us at our next event — we’d love to share all that The Big Event at SMU has to offer.

The Big Event 2024

April 6th

Mission and Vision!


Our mission at The Big Event is to empower and unify the SMU student body and greater pool of volunteers with impactful service experiences that foster personal growth and community betterment. Through fun and engaging opportunities, we aim to cultivate a culture of compassion and awareness, leaving a lasting positive impact on the Dallas community. As a cornerstone of SMU's broader mission, we strive to inspire a generation of Mustangs dedicated to making a difference, embodying the spirit of world-changers, and ensuring our city thrives long after students' departure.


It takes a lot to make a community. In light of that, The Big Event aims to touch each part of a community’s struggles – homelessness, malnutrition, and environmental cleanliness are just some of the many pieces of the community that we aim to impact to improve the whole of Dallas.
