OMAHA – University of Nebraska President Hank Bounds praised Baxter Arena and the UNO hockey team during the halftime radio show of the Huskers Football broadcast.
Toward the end of the show - which focused on NU's support for rural communities and the 2015 Rural Futures Conference - host Greg Sharpe asked Bounds about his experience attending opening night at Baxter Arena.
Listen to his response:
Bounds and the NU regents who attended the game arrived in Omaha earlier that day, for a campus visit.
During the presentations, regents heard about campus research and how UNO is using data to track student progress and offer support to students who may be going off track of completing their degree.
Speaking with local media, Bounds said UNO is growing steadily, and ensuring quality goes along with an increased student population.
"I know we are really making the kind of progress that I think Omaha and all of Nebraska should be very, very proud of," Bounds said.
