Prospective Student Visits

As the University of Nebraska-Lincoln grows in stature and enrollment, we attract more and more attention. One exciting result is the increasing number of high school students who visit campus. These students take tours and participate in events as they evaluate our programs and environment to determine if Nebraska is where their hopes and dreams will take shape.

I’m pleased to tell you that in the next two weeks, the Office of Admissions will host more than 4,000 prospective students at our annual Diversity Leadership Symposia and Red Letter Day events. On Nov. 8, we will have more prospective students on campus than we have had in at least the last 15 years.

While that’s great news, we recognize large numbers of visitors to campus can create a few inconveniences. For example, our dining centers who host visitors may have longer lines, so simply use the dining menu app ( or check University Dining Services for posted notifications to avoid longer wait times.

Please show these emerging leaders and future Huskers that there is no place like Nebraska by offering them a warm and respectful welcome. Thank you for helping to create the best possible experience at Nebraska.
