Individual Registration link

To streamline day-of-event registration, we are accepting individual registrations online.

Individuals can select a desired group name during individual registration. If you do not see your group listed in the individual registration form, please contact the Student Life and Leadership Office at                      260-481-6287 or

Groups must consist of one (1) team captain and, at least, one (1) team member.
There is no limit to the total number of group members; however, for groups with
more than 10 members, we cannot guarantee that all members will be placed at
the same not-for-profit agency (we will try our hardest).

Interested in taking your volunteerism to the next level? Students who are interested in being more involved and being a Team Leader for the day are invited to apply to be be a BIG Event Leader!
