What's The Big Event?

The Big Event is the only student activity that unites all seven Health Sciences Center colleges in an effort to say “thank you” to the Oklahoma City metro area. Our goal is to maximize applied learning in service to the HSC community. We will be going out into the immediate community to help different organizations with health-related tasks like screenings, health eduction, and just sharing our time and knowledge. HSC students, faculty, and staff are excited about putting their skills to use and invite you to join in our enthusiasm.

Examples of jobsites from past Big Events are:

  • Children's Hospital
  • Downtown YMCA
  • Edwards Redeemer Nursing Center
  • Grace Living Center
  • Tolliver Alternative Care
  • YWCA

On April 9th 2016, OUHSC students, faculty, and staff will unite in an unparalleled effort to say thank you to our community, one that provides constant support to the University of Oklahoma. The Big Event will impact hundreds of community organizations throughout the Norman and Oklahoma City Metro area. As the largest student-run community service effort in the nation, The Big Event is one-of-a-kind in that it unifies the campus with the surrounding community in a showing of gratitude through philanthropy.
