Husker Summer Preview

Husker Summer Preview

Saturday, July 25

Get ready to explore your future at Nebraska! Though we're sad we can't welcome you to campus in-person this summer, we're excited to host Husker Summer Preview, an exclusive virtual event for incoming high school seniors. This is your chance to get a better understanding of your area of academic interest, get an overview of campus resources and opportunities, learn about your next steps and ask questions.

Register to experience Husker Summer Preview on Saturday, July 25, with a variety of sessions from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. CDT. We'll bring you the sessions listed below live via Zoom (if you haven't used Zoom before, click to download Zoom for your computer or mobile device).

As you review the schedule and plan for the event, know that you don't need to attend every session—you'll have the option to join one session for each time block listed. Please note many sessions repeat.

How to Join a Session

On the event day, Zoom rooms will open 10 minutes before each session starts, and the button links will turn to red to indicate you can enter the room. To join a session, simply click the red button below the session's description and enter the Zoom password we sent you by email.

For each session you attend, we'll put you into a drawing for gift cards to the University Bookstore. Additionally, one student will be chosen to receive a trip to campus this fall, including travel and hotel accommodations.

Chat with us on GroupMe

We encourage you to ask questions during the info sessions, but if you have a question at any time throughout the event, we'll be available on GroupMe (from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. CDT on June 27 and July 25).
