University of Southern Mississippi students, faculty and staff met Wednesday at the Thad Cochran Center on the Hattiesburg campus to discuss plans for The Big Event, a university-wide community service project set for April 10, 2010 designed to showcase the school’s commitment to Hattiesburg and surrounding areas through volunteerism.

Details about the event were unveiled and members of the university community were informed about how they can be part of the historic event, which is part of the university’s year-long schedule of Centennial Celebration activities. Organizers hope what will become an annual event will draw more than 500 members of the Southern Miss family out into South Mississippi communities that day for a variety of service initiatives, from repairing homes to beautification projects.
