Event Details

Individual Visit | Half Day | Most Weekdays

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 representative from your academic interest area. Discuss, ask questions and learn more about the many academic resources and opportunities available to you at Nebraska.

To support health and safety, we cannot guarantee on-campus academic appointments, but you can check availability when you register. If you're unable to connect with a representative from your area of study, we encourage you to register for a virtual 1-to-1 appointment.

COVID-19 Event Precautions

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln takes the health and safety of our campus community very seriously. In response to the spread of COVID-19, we have taken the following precautions.

The university will follow local and state health official guidelines for any limitations on group gathering sizes or restrictions. Check the city’s COVID risk dial and other important information here: https://www.lincoln.ne.gov/city/covid19/.

All visit and event participants and facilitators will wear facial coverings, in keeping with established campus policy. Temperatures of guests will not be taken by the Office of Admissions or University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Hand sanitizers will be available at every entrance/exit to a building as well as various other spots on campus.

The university has modified visit and event scheduling, locations and room arrangements (seating, tables, etc.) to facilitate six or more feet of physical distancing between attendees. Admissions staff has coordinated with facilities on any need for more frequent cleaning of high-touch points in high-traffic areas. We will adhere to facility and room capacities, entrances, exits and traffic flows established for physical distancing.

If you or any parent/guardian accompanying you have any related COVID-19 symptoms, do not come to campus. Please call the Office of Admissions at 402-472-2023 to have your visit rescheduled at a different date.

We encourage guests to use the 1-Check COVID-19 screening app (iOS/Android) developed by the University of Nebraska Medical Center. 1-Check COVID-19 enables individuals to privately answer a series of questions and assess their risk of having COVID-19.

The Office of Admissions is committed to hosting potential students in a variety of platforms. If an on-campus experience is not the right option for you, virtual experiences are available. Join us for one of our recurring online info sessions or for a 1-to-1 phone or video conference appointment. Click the button below to learn more and register.
