Donate Blood in honor of John Patrick Nicholson - Unlike most of his classmates at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, John Patrick Nicholson has been fighting Medulloblastoma, a type of brain cancer, for over six years. Along with chemotherapy, he has received several blood transfusions to help him recover from infections when his blood counts were too low to fight against them. John Patrick has been through a lot, but still has hope. Help give other patients hope by giving blood at this upcoming drive.
Blood Drive - JPII Newman Center, Karol's Commons - Wednesday, May 2, 2018 - 1:00 PM to 7:0o PM.
Please visit redcrossblood.org and enter: newmancenter to schedule an appointment.

The University Honors Program piloted a Common Reader for students in Fall 2015, as all incoming first-year students joining the Program received a copy of Daniel James Brown’s The Boys in the Boat (2014) to read over the summer. We met to discuss the text in small groups with faculty, staff, and students immediately before Fall Convocation, and then had a series of events connected to the text, such as a tailgate social, service project, and luncheon with a guest speaker. The pilot was so well received that the effort was expanded across campus in 2016, when we read Matt Richtel's A Deadly Wandering; in Fall 2017, the campus choice was Wes Moore's The Other Wes Moore.
Check out the effort--now University wide--for this year! Click here.
