On March 24th, 2018, thousands of Aggies gathered to show their appreciation to the Bryan-College Station community through selfless service, one of the six core values at Texas A&M University. The day started with a kickoff ceremony, in which coach Jimbo Fisher was the keynote speaker. The cannon fired around 9:30 am, after which participants started receiving their tools and heading to their sites.
Autism Speaks U was divided into two groups this year! One of our groups spent the day gardening, while the other group was able to paint a shed. Our hosts were very generous and offered us lunch and drinks to keep us refreshed.
Overall, we had a lot of fun at The Big Event 2018!
