OUA offers students a lot of different ways to play an active role in the Arezzo community.
Initiatives and events take place throughout the semester and summer.
The Big Event in Arezzo
Sharing good ideas has always been fundamental to OU, that is why OU in Arezzo decided to import one of the most successful events from OU's campus to Italy. It's been 10 years since the first OUA Big Event. Our first project involved cleaning up city parks, and over the years the event has grown into one of the most anticipated and well-known Community Service events in Arezzo. Every year, local "Aretini," OU students and other people from OUA's partner networks join
forces to revamp, clean, paint or just lend a hand to the town of Arezzo in a number of ways. It has truly become a BIG event in Arezzo!
This year the Big Event in Arezzo has turned out as a challenge. Our day dedicated to community service, with American and Italian students working together on beautification projects for the city of Arezzo saw the participation of talented street artists (@Muromuseum) and… an ever changing weather.
Sun, rain, hail, snow, and wind did not stop our volunteers and we have successfully been able to gift the city with an ever-lasting work of art. Two pedestrian subways in the most popular and central green areas of the city, turned into an open-air art gallery. Stay tuned for the wrap-up video to come…
