Auburn University SGA Big Event: Saturday March 26, 2011  

The Big EventAuburnVoices is participating with the Auburn University SGA Big Event, Saturday - March 26th. The Big Event began in 2003 as a way for Auburn University students and staff to give back to the communities of Auburn, Opelika and Lee County. AuburnVoices has identified projects associated with Notasulga School and community/school-based programs in Lee County. Our biggest project at the Notasulga School will include projects to improve the school such as working on classroom and school spaces, outside landscaping, working on the playground spaces, and athletic field spaces.

We are working with College of Education student organizations to create teams to participate in this outreach project. We are also looking for students, faculty, and staff who would like to participate. Our teams will primarily be working at Notasulga, but if you know of other community programs or schools who might need the assistance please let us know. If you are interested in your student organization participating or simply want to join us on Saturday, March 26th, please contact any of the coordinators listed below. Looking forward to having a strong showing among faculty, staff, and students in the College of Education.
