Held during the fall and spring semesters, the Housing Fair offers student housing communities the opportunity to get in front of students before they make their decision on living plans for the following year. For students, mid-October is the time to start signing leases and looking for housing options for the next school year and March is the perfect time to see what is available for the summer!
PET THE STRESS AWAY
College can be stressful - that’s why we hold Pet the Stress Away multiple times during the school year. Around finals time, we team up with local animal shelters to bring dogs to campus and cheer up stressed out students. Sponsoring this event allows us to continue the joy.
The Spring Festival is our final event of the school year, celebrating the end of the semester nearing. Students join the celebration to experience food, live music, games, and more. Vendors are able to join in bringing the students a fun experience while promoting their business.
Our news endowment issues are some of our most popular. Past topics have included the UNL Greek system, campus safety and sustainability. Topics for this year’s in-depth editions will be announced in Fall 2022.
