What Is "The Big Diehl"?

The Big Diehl is a programming initiative from the Division of Student Affairs that aims to provide social opportunities for students in Memphis and the surrounding area for little to no cost. The Big Diehl allows the college to support its students enjoying some of the things Memphis and the mid-south have to offer. The event calendar is planned ahead of time and publicized with flyers posted at the beginning of each semester and the announcement boards across campus. Past Big Diehl events include: trips to Atlanta, St. Louis, and North Carolina, Memphis Grizzlies, Memphis’ NBA basketball, and Memphis Redbirds, the St. Louis Cardinals′ AAA affiliate, games. Recently, students went whitewater rafting in Eastern Tennessee and played paintball in Northern Mississippi.
The Big Diehl is organized by a committee of students and staff who plan and organize 10 or more different events each semester.
