Middle school students got a crash course in college preparation and career exploration June 29 during a unique career fair event at the Milo Bail Student Center. From 1 to 4 p.m., college-bound high school students from across the Metro area gave middle school students from the North Omaha Boys and Girls club a guided tour of the UNO campus and lessons on college and career advancement.
This fall, college will be $135 more expensive.
A little after 9:30 p.m June 6, UNO graduate Laura Aust left her first class as a graduate student. Because she didn't have a permit, Aust had parked along the one-way road just down the hill on the East side of the Arts and Sciences building. It was light out when she parked, but Aust discovered that after dark the one-way Elmwood Park service road was an unsettling place to be.
In the early 1980s, then-student Viv Ewing invested much of her time helping improve peers', family's and fellow students' life quality. Today, as a UNO alumna, she's as busy serving others, working as the director of human resources and organization development at Habitat for Humanity Omaha and holding several leadership positions on various boards and councils.
More than 1,700 UNO students became alumni this spring. Of those 1,700, more than 900 participated in what was the largest UNO commencement ceremony yet, held May 6 at the Civic Auditorium.
In the article "Insecure about Campus Security," published on April 19 in the Opinion Section, Paul Kosel's name was misspelled. The Gateway apologizes for this error.
It's 9:00 a.m. Your alarm screeches in your ear. You groan, fumble for the off switch and end the din. You trudge to the kitchen with heavy eyelids and an empty stomach and begin your daily routine: cereal for breakfast and a hot shower. You pull on a comfortable pair of sweatpants and a wrinkled T-shirt. It's time for school.
The new MavLink system was designed to update the clunky, outdated version of the online tool to suit today's technologically advanced students, said recently re-elected student senator Terrence Batiste in an interview with the Gateway.
