Happy 2018! Welcome to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Women’s Club website. We are an organization that is over 120 years old, and for many years its members were UNL faculty wives. We have since expanded our membership to women of the community who have any connection to the University, whether directly or through its activities. Our main goal is to raise scholarship funds for students with financial need, and last year were able to award $25,000 among 13 students. Through educational events and interest groups, the Women’s Club creates opportunities for new experiences and fellowship among its members.
In September we started our year with the annual Welcome event at the home of NU President Hank Bounds and his wife Susie. In November we met at the Landing at Williamsburg for the Fall Brunch with entertainment from students from the UNL Opera program.
This spring, we will have our first general meeting and quilt tour at the International Quilt Center on Feb. 7, and on March 8 we will have our second general meeting and tour at Morrill Hall. Our final event will be the annual Spring Luncheon which will be held on April 11 at the Country Club of Lincoln. Be sure to check out the details of all these events in the spring newsletter.
This year, along with continuing to fund our Student Scholarship program, we are helping the Huskers Helping Huskers Pantry. The Pantry is located in the UNL Student Union and is a resource for students who struggle with affording everyday necessities. We collected donations at our Fall Brunch and will continue to collect donations at our upcoming meetings.
If you not a member and are interested in learning more about our organization, be sure to check out our various interest groups and events. We have over twenty interest groups, so there’s sure to be one or more for you! If you wish to become a member, click on the Membership link and download the membership form.
I am honored to be the President for the 2017-2018 year, and I look forward to a rewarding and enjoyable year together!
President, UNLWC 2017-2018
