Good morning! It is my very real pleasure to welcome you to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I want to welcome you to the entire campus, which includes both the City Campus where we are today and the East Campus - famous for its beauty and the university ice cream store!
As a student here you are becoming an important part of the University of Nebraska family, with many exciting challenges and opportunities ahead of you. In fact, often these challenges and opportunities are both sides of the same coin.
You're entering a challenging educational environment, and the opportunities which are in front of you are almost indescribable - opportunities for intellectual and personal growth, opportunities to explore new ideas, opportunities to work with your professors, to discover new knowledge, to attend cultural events such as plays, concerts and recitals at special student prices - and don't forget to keep an eye out for those that are free, too.
