8/16 - Broncho Rally- 7:00pm to 9:00 pm, Plunkett Park
This is the kick-off service event hosted by the VSLC! Intended to get students excited about volunteering while at UCO, the Broncho Rally is a service event that takes place on-campus to make it easy to access, and it's always fun too!  This year we will be kicking of our year long Broncho Rally Service Series at Broncho Rally.  Attendees will learn all about service through fun activities and events.   

8/21- Volunteer and Part Time Job Fair, 9 am to 2 pm, Broncho Lake
In conjunction with UCO's Career Development Center, non-profit, volunteer organizations, and companies offering part time jobs and internships come to campus to offer students the opportunity to meet and greet some of the community's leaders in service and job opportunities! From 9 a.m. til 2 p.m. students can come out to Broncho Lake and talk with these organizations to find a place where they would want to volunteer!

9/11 - 9/11 Service Project and Remembrance Ceremony 
This is a very special volunteer event intended to show UCO's appreciation and remembrance of the men and women who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks of 2001. This day includes a flag planting ceremony around Broncho Lake on 9/11/18, and an evening of appreciation for the public servants of our community on 9/11/18.  To sign up for the service event please click here.

9/29 - Little Event
Little event is a service opportunity that allows students to help in varying capacities in the state of Oklahoma. This event features some of the OKC Metro's best non-profit agencies and is a primer for the Spring service project, Big Event.

10/18-10/19 - Alternative Fall Break
Rather than going home for the extended weekend, a small group of students will be chosen to go on an in-state trip to perform service for the weekend. This trip is loved by students who are able to attend!

December 7, 2018- United Way Stockings for Joy
UCO students will assist the United Way of Central Oklahoma with their annual Stockings for Joy event. UCO students, staff and faculty will meet in the UCO Ballroom C from 12-3 p.m. to pack stockings for children who are served by the United Way of Central Oklahoma.  Co-Sponsored by the UCO Big Event. 

1/14/2019 - MLK Day of Service
In celebration of MLK Day and the ideals MLK represented, students are encouraged to join in a large-scale service project on their day off.  Please look for the sign up on OrgSync.

4/7/2019 - The Big Event
A premiere event of the VSLC, the Big Event is UCO's biggest day of service that is completely run by students. Students from all of campus are encouraged to sign up and give back to the Edmond community all over, from animal shelters to non-profit agencies benefiting children. Often students remember Big Event as one of their fondest memories.

3/16-3/24/2019 Alternative Spring Break
Similar to AFB, rather than partaking in your 'average' spring break, students go on a long-distance trip in order to serve. Many students claim this to be their favorite part of their college careers! Applications generally are available in late Fall in the VSLC.

4/28/2019- OKC Memorial Marathon
Please join UCO as we remember those we lost in the April 19, 1995 Murrah Federal Building Bombing by volunteering at the OKC Memorial Marathon in various capacities.
