Opportunities at Your Fingertips
When Nate Hunt began working as a barista at the Criss Library café at the University of Nebraska Omaha, he was looking for his next move after returning from a tour of duty in Iraq in the army to wrap up an undergraduate degree in physics.
He had no idea he would get to stay at UNO, receive a full-time scholarship and get paid an additional stipend to work in one of the best internationally regarded biomechanics programs in the world.
How did this opportunity arise? All over a cup of coffee.
