Bobcat Build

What is The Big Event?

The Big Event - formally Bobcat Build - serves as one of Texas State's well-recognized traditions and the largest service project on campus. Hosted by Student Involvement and Engagement, The Big Event serves as a one-day event for the university community to come together and volunteer their time to engage in various service projects throughout the community at residents’ homes, local schools, parks, churches, and neighborhoods.

3,000 Volunteers

The BIG Event started with approximately 700 volunteers and has grown to accommodate over 3,000 volunteers consisting of students, staff and faculty.


Over the past 20 years, the BIG Event has grown from serving 50 jobsites to over 200 service sites, many from our amazing San Marcos residents!
