UNO recognized the accomplishments of outstanding faculty and students last week, during its annual Honors Convocation events.
The University of Nebraska Medical Center's outdoor ice skating rink has a new attraction this season. Open to the public since Nov. 27, the rink has added concessions, music and seasonal decorations. "The additions "make the atmosphere even more festive and help draw attention to the rink and make the site more visible," said UNMC's Media Relations coordinator Vicky Cerino.
Dave Nabity is one of three Republican candidates running for mayor of Omaha. Though he hasn't held public office before, he has been a part of local and Nebraska politics for years. He is a graduate of UNO and has worked in business with his company, Nabity Business Advisors.
His political contributions to the city and state have centered on protecting small business interests and managing government contracts and spending. In 2009, he founded the Omaha Alliance for the Private Sector which worked on reports regarding fire and police contracts, reorganization of government, and countless other proposals on how to save money and consolidate budgets.
Students caught a glimpse of the Freshman Leadership Council (FLC) last week, as they stood both inside and outside the student center with an oversized greeting card, urging passersby to write messages for incoming freshmen. The greeting card, which will be presented to incoming freshmen this fall, is a new idea the FLC hopes to make a UNO tradition.
