Big Red's Blitz
Date:  Thursday, August 23rd, 2012
Time:  9:00am - 4:00pm
Location:  Bowling Green/Warren County
Description:  

Every August, first-year students can start the semester early by participating in M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan activities the week before classes begin M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan stands for "Making Academic and Social Transitions Educationally Rewarding" Plan. The M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan participants "blitz" Bowling Green, providing four hours of service to local nonprofit agencies during the campus' largest community service event: Big Red's Blitz!

Volunteers, known as "Blitzers," are sent out into the community in groups, as small as five to as large as 50, to work alongside Big Red, Western Leaders, and fellow classmates completing various service projects. Whether they are sorting items at The Salvation Army, cleaning up local parks and wooded areas with Bowling Green Public Works, pulling invasive species at Lost River Cave, organizing building materials with Habitat for Humanity, or painting picnic tables at Potter Children's Home, Blitzers are choosing to "get off the bench" and engage in their community!
