Husker Weekdays

Husker Weekdays

Experience life at Nebraska

Event Details

Experience for yourself what life is like as a student at Nebraska. Husker Weekdays are free campus visit opportunities held daily. During your visit, you’ll explore campus with a current Nebraska student as your guide, tour a residence hall, and learn more about student involvement opportunities. You’ll also get the chance to discuss important admission, scholarship and financial aid information with Nebraska Office of Admissions staff.

Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to attend an academic appointment with a recruitment coordinator from your academic program of interest. Discuss, ask questions, and learn more about the many academic resources and opportunities available to you at Nebraska.

Registration

Because Husker Weekdays fill up quickly, we encourage you to reserve your spot early. Reservations are required for this event. Please reserve your spot before booking travel arrangements.

Nebraska’s scheduled breaks include: fall break (October 17-18), Thanksgiving break (November 23-27), winter break (December 18-January 5), and spring break (March 19-23).
