UNO Named Number One College for Veterans
The University of Nebraska at Omaha was named the nation’s top four-year institution for veterans according to the 2015 “Best for Vets” rankings released by the Military Times. Representatives from over 600 colleges and universities took part in the survey. UNO has improved its ranking, moving from being the top public university in last year’s rankings to the top overall university in 2015.
Message from Chancellor Christensen on Veterans Day
“Veterans Day is an occasion for us to remember those brave men and women who have given and who still give so much for us all. Let us take time today to recognize and honor those whose sacrifices have meant so much. As part of UNO’s commitment to our military men and women, we provide a wide range of services to more than 1,300 active military, veterans and their dependents in the recently established Office of Military and Veteran Services. In addition, UNO proudly employs over 170 veterans. Please say ‘thank you’ to these heroes who have fought to protect our freedom and honor.” – Chancellor John Christensen.
Veterans Day of Service
Students were able to sign up and register to go out in the community to serve a nonprofit in honor of Veterans Day on Nov. 11. Hands-on projects were made available in the Milo Bail Student Center to honor the sacrifice veterans have made for the country during this day of service. All projects directly impacted military members and veterans. UNO partnered with nonprofit organizations that transferred the finished project goods to veterans and military members.
