UT Arlington students, faculty, staff, and community came together like every year for The Big Event. Students participated in volunteer work all over the DFW area, not only Arlington. Students who decided to stay near UTA, participated at Mission Arlington, Animal Shelter, and the Community Garden on campus. They helped sort clothes, supplies, and food for those citizens who stopped by to look at what Mission Arlington had to offer. At the shelter volunteers helped care of the animals, folded newspapers and cleaned windows and a storage room. As for those in the community garden learned about different ways to take care of the garden as well as how to cook their harvest.

Over 40 volunteer locations were made available for students and at the end of the day a celebration was offered.
