Ten students from the Aggie Forensic and Investigative Sciences Organization helped a resident in Bryan in the cool late March air during The Big Event on March 30.
The students were among 19,000 Aggies that participated in the largest student-run community service event in the nation. During the day, they helped a resident in Bryan with several chores including cleaning both front and back yards, raking leaves, and cleaning brush and other leaves from the flower beds.
This was freshman Forensics major Abigail Drago’s first year to participate in the event.
“I think it’s cool that we are doing this for the community and I love doing volunteer work,” she said.
Forensics major Andreana Rios loved the fact that she is giving back to the community.
“It’s fun and personally a great way to give back to the community,” she said.
For Rachel McNeal, the event also is a great way to get to know the people in our community.
“It’s nice to get to meet the people in our community and to hear their stories and to get to know them,” she said.
Junior forensics major Mary Brown said that her favorite part of The Big Event was the fact that she is also helping out the community with her fellow students.
“I think the fact you are helping people out is my favorite part of doing The Big Event,” she said. “It really makes me feel good that I’m helping people in the community.”
