Are you a UNO Alum? The UNO Alumni Association is looking for volunteers to help cheer on the graduates as they walk backstage after receiving their diploma cover. This hallway is decorated to welcome the newest alums to the family. Alumni who took part in our very first "Graduation Gauntlet" had a blast! Check out this quick video for an idea of how the day looked! Once a Maverick, Always a Maverick!
