‘I don’t even know how to say thank you enough’
Best friends tell university supporters: You’re the best.

Jennifer Rooney and Madison Wurtele met their freshman year at UNL. They lived on the same floor in Sandoz Hall. They both studied journalism. They became best friends. This past spring, they took one final walk around campus together, just the two of them, before walking across the stage a few days later on graduation day.
Someday, they say, they will give back to the university for all it has given them: a great education, great memories and each other.
“I just want to say thank you to supporters,” says Madison, who will begin law school this fall in Lincoln. “Without you, college would not have been possible for me, so I don’t even know how to say thank you enough.
“You’ve made all my dreams come true.”
Says Jennifer: “Whether you donate $10 or millions of dollars, every dollar counts.”
Needs and opportunities are ever-changing at Nebraska, and through the N Fund, you choose to support what you think is most important. The N Fund allows alumni and friends to contribute to priority funds that support specific Nebraska colleges, as well as broader areas of need like student scholarships, faculty development and campus libraries.
One hundred percent of all gifts to the N Fund are used to improve the quality of a Nebraska education. By focusing on specific priority areas, we can advance the mission of the university, make private donations reach much further and ultimately help more driven and deserving students.
The University of Nebraska–Lincoln would not be what it is today without the support of alumni and friends. Please make your gift today, and make a difference for Nebraska students.
