The anniversary celebration will take place on Friday, April 11, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Thompson Alumni Center and is free and open to all Gateway alumni, current staff members, UNO students and faculty.
The Gateway has been UNO’s source of news and opinion for students, faculty and alumni since 1913. The celebration will commemorate the paper’s achievements over the past 100 years and honor the contributions of the paper’s previous staff members.
Displays at the event will include editions of the paper from each decade. Additionally, past and present editors, professional advisers and Publication Board members and will share their experiences.
A special 100-year edition of the Gateway will be published prior to the event.
Beginning in 1913 as a yearbook, the Gateway provided a companion to the student-run daily YELLow Sheet publication until 1922 when the Gateway became a weekly publication and served as the sole publication issued by the UNO student body.
During its time as a UNO publication, the Gateway has covered a number of major UNO events including the merger of Omaha University into the University of Nebraska system, the construction of new buildings, the hiring of new chancellors and UNO’s move to Division I athletics.
