The Philanthropic Committee is a way in which students can get involved with philanthropy on campus in various ways. The Committee consists of five sub committees which are Habitat for Humanity Committee, Make a Difference Week Committee, Blood Drive Committee, Canned Food Drive Committee, and the Public Relations Committee. Each of these sub-committees has special projects that they will work on throughout the school year. Being a part of the Philanthropic Committee is a great way for students to be actively engaged with their community as True BLUE Raiders!
Are you a freshman who is looking for ways to get involved on campus? Well, here's
your opportunity! Join us on September 14 for the "Freshman Day of Service", a one
day event devoted to community service projects.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY BLITZ BUILD
MTSU Habitat Blitz Build
Beginning in January 2006, students started raising funds through various programs for the first MTSU Habitat Blitz Build. The goal is to raise $50K so that students may begin building a home for a resident of Rutherford County. Because of this project, MTSU has started two strong events on campus: Cheer for Humanity and See Spot Run 5K Run/Walk. Students, alumni, and staff will be able to join efforts to build a house from the ground up in one week on campus once fundraising is complete. Currently, nearly $30K has been raised.
Annual 5K Walk/Run for participants and their dogs. Awards are given to top finishers in their age group and top dogs.

The BIG Event is the largest one-day event, student-run service project in the nation where students of Middle Tennessee State University will come together to say "thank you" to the residents of Murfreesboro.
This will be the fifth year MTSU students will show their appreciation to the surrounding community by completing service projects such as yard work, window washing, and painting for community members. Although The Big Event has become the largest one-day, student-run service project in the nation, our message and our mission will be simply — to say "thank you."
