Incoming Freshmen Honored With Oversized Postcard
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Freshman Leadership Council is looking to celebrate the class of 2015 well before the new students ever set foot on campus.
Starting Monday, April 18, the organization, which is part of UNO Student Government, will make available an oversized postcard, stretching 8-foot by 4-foot, to be signed by current UNO students and addressed to the incoming freshman class.
The postcard will be available for students to sign Monday, April 18 through Wednesday, April 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, on the Milo Bail Student Center outdoor plaza.
The project, called "U-NO You Want to Sign It," will be completed when the Freshmen Leadership Council presents the card, with all of its signatures, to the freshmen class during next fall's freshmen convocation.
"We all remember those first couple of days on campus," Freshman Class Senator Benjamin Kaipust told The Gateway, in a recent story about the project. "I think this gesture will help them ease into the transition and see they're welcome at UNO."
