The Big Event



The Big Event is an annual off-campus community service project that allows students to say thank you to the community of Las Cruces for all they do for New Mexico State. Students, alumni, faculty, and staff commit their time to beautify the city Las Cruces. The Big Event takes place in the spring. Registration Packets for the Big Event can be downloaded or picked up from the ASNMSU office. For more information on the Big Event please contact the ASNMSU Director of Community Outreach at
