Tuesday, Sept. 3, marks the official end of Durango Days, UNO's official "Welcome Week" - ensuring that students are prepared to succeed in their educational mission.
Throughout Durango Days and even prior, staff from across the campus stepped up to ensure that each student had the opportunity to become engaged, learn about campus and make sure they made it to their classes on time.
Whether it was providing campus information, guiding traffic, handing out food, answering questions or even just showing Maverick Sprit, the staff of UNO made the start of the Fall 2019 semester one to truly remember.
"This is one of the most exciting times of the year at UNO and it means that much more for our staff to be so involved in supporting our students," said Steven Summers, president of UNO Staff Advisory Council and director of the Thompson Alumni Center. "I would encourage all members of campus to remember this feeling, remember this energy and carry it with them through the rest of the semester as we make sure our students are successful."
Those interested in becoming more involved on campus througout the year, contact Steven Summers to learn more about the UNO Staff Advisory Council.
