Flag Lowering in Honor of Wanda Ewing

The UNO flag will be lowered today in honor of Wanda Ewing, a UNO associate professor, who passed away Dec. 7. Ewing began working at UNO in 2004 in the Art and Art History department. She received her B.F.A. in printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute. She later received both her M.A. and M.F.A. degrees from the University of Iowa.

eNotes is Rebranding!

eNotes is the University of Nebraska at Omaha's electronic newsletter, accessible via our website or sent directly to your email inbox. eNotes provides timely articles, events, and tips to help keep you connected to the campus community. In the new year you will notice significant updates to eNotes. Most notably-- the design. The newsletter will now come to you packaged in a UNO-branded layout and will feature photos. This allows us to more fully tell the UNO story while connecting you directly to our university News Center online.

The other change you will see is the name. We surveyed campus this fall and the most popular choice for eNotes' new name was "The Maverick."

Faculty and staff subscribers will continue to receive their daily newsletter, but it will be called "The Maverick Daily." Once a week, students will receive an updated version all their own called "The Maverick Weekly."

You will still be able to access these versions online, and you can still submit entries.

We will keep you informed with sneak peeks and updates along the way!
