And so it begins…
In the wee hours of Wednesday morning throngs of University of Nebraska at Omaha students filed into several charter buses headed on the road for Boston.
Their destination: The TD Garden, of course.
Why? That’s where the 2015 NCAA Frozen Four ice hockey tournament will be held, duh.
Here’s a glimpse of their nearly two-day bus trip from our Gateway photographer Evan Ludes point of view…
A huge thank you to UNO and Aksarben Cinema for helping fund the trip for Gateway photographer Evan Ludes and Editor-in-Chief Nick Beaulieu, who will be providing live updates on unothegateway.com
