CHARTER WEEK: FEBRUARY 11-15
Glow Big Red is during Charter Week, a weeklong celebration of the 150th anniversary of the University of Nebraska.
The university was chartered on Feb. 15, 1869, and charged with its land-grant mission of public education, research and service to Nebraska. In 2019, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln marks a 150-year legacy of improving the quality of life for Nebraska and beyond.
“The University of Nebraska-Lincoln, as our statewide, comprehensive campus, is indeed the DNA of Nebraska and beyond,” Green said. “Our mission as we look out to the immediate and long-term years has never been more important to meet the grand challenges of our world.”
This is the first time for Glow Big Red which will become part of our honored Husker traditions.
On Feb. 14 and 15, Huskers near and far will celebrate the University of Nebraska–Lincoln by lighting up our homes and businesses in red.
We’re going to fly our Husker flags as high as we can and wear our favorite Husker gear.
We’ll give back to the university by supporting students and the causes on campus that are most important to us.
Join Husker Nation from noon to noon on Feb. 14 and 15 for the inaugural Glow Big Red Celebration. And follow the excitement online here with #GlowBigRed:
